When A. Lange & Sohne created the Lange 1 Daymatic, the company diff erentiated it from the regular Lange 1 by making it the latter’s mirror image. For example, the Daymatic’s hour-and-minute display is on the right of the dial, instead of the left. Similarly, the Daymatic’s retrograde day-of-the-week scale mirrors the position of the power reserve indicator on the Lange 1. We like the characteristic attention to detail that’s shown in this 39.5mm pink gold watch.
