First presented in 2016, the Richard Lange Jumping Seconds, a typical example of the Saxon watchmaker’s style with its regulator display, returns with a black dial and white gold case.

Ever since it was launched in 2016, Lange’s first new-era model with jumping seconds has stood out with its sleek design and mechanical finesse. Its regulator dial with the large seconds circle at the top draws the attention to the smallest of the three units of time. The smaller hour and minute circles arranged beneath it are positioned to the left and right.

A. Lange & Söhne is presenting a version with a black dial at the SIHH 2019 in Geneva. Subtlety in color and the symmetry of the circles recall Bauhaus design concepts. The clear contrast of white markings on a black background adds a new aesthetic dimension to the regulator architecture emphasized by its red accents. The display in the lower zone where the hour and minute indications intersect is a special eye-catcher: Ten hours before the unwound state is reached, it switches from white to red, reminding the wearer that the watch needs to be rewound soon.
