An extraordinary dial
At first glance it may seem simple, but the dial of the Little Langen is made of solid gold. On closer inspection, the elegant wave pattern is also noticeable, which enhances the structures on the dial. Below the company logo on the right is the two-part date window. The date digits are in thick black on a white background. This makes them clearly recognisable and easy to read. To the left below the logo is the dial of the actual watch with the hour and minute display. The hour and minute markings are made of gold. The positions twelve, three, six and nine o'clock are marked with Roman numerals, the rest with simple lines.
Small and long?
The Kleine Lange 1, with its diameter of 36.8 millimetres and height of 9.5 millimetres, doesn't really look that small. This is quite a normal size for a modern wristwatch. It is not long either. The dial is circular and if you take the bracelet into account, every watch is inevitably long. The name Lange obviously does not refer to the appearance of the watch, but to the manufacturer A. Lange und Söhne. By the way, this is a genuine German company, a rarity among luxury watch manufacturers.
