For those among you who still remember Günter Blümlein, I can tell you that this blue is his.

It was Günter Blümlein who once defined exactly this blue tone.

When A. Lange & Söhne now issues a series of four watches with Blümlein´s blue dial it is more than just an attempt to sell some additional watches and a belatedly jump on the already fast moving Blue Train.

For connaisseurs the four Blue Series models are a deep bow to Günter Blümlein.

I have seen the watches live and I can tell you the Blue Series models look gorgeous. All of them!

Blue is the new black! Not new, but true!

Discover four beauties in blue ... 

 

The Blue Series

The four A. Lange & Söhne Blue Series models feature proprietary manufacture calibres that showcase all Lange-style quality hallmarks, from the artisanal finissage of all movement parts to the elaborate twofold assembly process. Even those surfaces that are later no longer visible through the sapphire-crystal caseback are lavishly finished and decorated. The edges of all plates, bridges and cocks are chamfered and then polished to a mirror finish. The hand-engraved balance cock, with the classic whiplash spring, beautifully symbolises Lange’s unfaltering quest for perfection. It is a signature element that makes each A. Lange & Söhne timepiece a unique work of art.

On the Daymatic, there is no mark for the indicator for what I presume is Sunday. Is this because on the seventh day God rested?
