Lange LANGE 1 MOON PHASE “25th Anniversary”

   Among the many Lange moon phase watches, LANGE January Phase is the most representative. Lange has 17 moon phase watches (excluding material differences), of which 6 (excluding discontinued models) are based on LANGE 1 (Including GRAND LANGE 1 and LITTLE LANGE 1) based on the watch. LANGE 1 represents Lange’s rigor, practicality and high aesthetics. It is one of Lange’s first series of revival watches, and has become Lange’s proud masterpiece. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the launch of Lange LANGE 1. Lange proudly presents a series of commemorative watches of extraordinary design to pay tribute to this special moment. In July, Lange brand new LANGE 1 MOON PHASE ’25th Anniversary’ limited edition watch, combined with Lange’s unique and innovative moon phase function, presenting beautiful sun, moon and sky scenery.
Day and night
   In fact, in the strict sense, the new LANGE 1 MOON PHASE “25th Anniversary” limited watch should be added with the DAY / NIGHT description, because it is not just a moon phase watch, it also has a day and night display function . In 2017, Lange innovatively designed a new generation of LANGE 1 MOON PHASE watches, which introduced the day and night display function based on the original moon phase function, which greatly enhanced the speciality of the LNAGE 1 moon phase watch. Because of this clever concept, Only available with LANGE 1.

   This year’s new LANGE 1 MOON PHASE ’25th Anniversary’ limited edition watch is based on the 2017 Lange Moon Phase watch. This watch adds a set of gear trains connected to the hour wheel in the original moon phase module, and at the same time changes the original single moon phase disk to a day and night disk and a ‘dual moon’ disk (there is a moon at each end. The two phases are concentric and coaxial, and the ‘dual moon’ plate is set against the background of the day and night plate. During the day, the background is sky blue, and at night, the background is starry sky. This design does not require additional display space, and can display two functional displays, which is indeed exquisite.
Time and elegance and precision
   As a member of the commemorative series, the new watch naturally has all the characteristics of the commemorative series. The watch as a whole has blue as the main tone. Only a few special or highly complicated models will show blue as an important symbol. All indicator elements of the dial, including hands, scales, brand logos and special signs are blue. The strap also uses a blue crocodile leather strap. The back movement also uses a large amount of blue decoration. These are the same as before. LANGE 1 MOON PHASE watches are distinguished.

   The watch is still equipped with a Lange L121.3 manual movement. This movement is from the L121.1 movement developed by Lange when it upgraded LANGE 1 in 2015. It is obviously characterized by the use of a full 3/4 German silver plywood, and the balance spring system also completely uses Lange’s homemade Structure, including homemade balance spring and weight balance. This movement is equipped with a dual barrel and provides a 72-hour power reserve, as the German ‘Doppelfederhaus’ on the dial means. In addition, the movement also incorporates Lange’s signature craftsmanship and design, including gold sleeves fixed by blue steel screws, mirror-polished escapement wheel bearing covers, hand-carved balance wheel plywood, and more.

   Of course, all Lange is highly respected by the fine watchmaking world. In addition to the series of high standards it emphasizes, it also insists on the second assembly of the movement. The assembly of the movement is a very labor-intensive and time-consuming process. The most professional assembly procedure is involved here. It is not only required to fully assemble the movement in place and run it accurately. In fact, it is a re-examination of each position of the movement. Due to the expertise of the entire movement system involved in the assembly of the movement, only the lubrication of the oil has rigorous and tedious requirements, and it must be operated in accordance with the instructions. Therefore, only experienced craftsmen will be placed in such positions. The second assembly of Lange requires that after the assembly of the movement is completed, it is disassembled and cleaned, and then reassembled, oiled and tested to ensure that the movement has completely superior quality.
  It is because of such high standards that Lange is so popular.

Lange has 27 boutiques worldwide, 9 in China (including Hong Kong and Macau), 5 inland, and more flagship stores, which are always better than abroad.

Hublot Collaborates With Sorai To Commit To Rhino Protection And Respond To Biodiversity Emergencies

HUBLOT, a well-known Swiss watchmaking brand, has joined hands with Kevin Pietersen and SORAI (SaveOurRhinosAfricaandIndia) to work together to protect endangered rhinos. It is imperative for the entire planet and our children and grandchildren to save this large herbivorous mammal that lives in Africa and Asia. Today, Hublot brand ambassador and retired international cricket star Kevin Peterson can finally devote himself to his passion for rhino protection. Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe officially opened friendly cooperation with Kevin Peterson in South Africa. In order to highlight the brand’s commitment to rhino protection, Hublot officially launched the BigBangUnicoSORAI watch. Most of the watch sales will be donated directly to CareforWild and SouthAfrican National Parks. For charitable purposes, the former will be used to care for and protect ‘orphan’ rhino cubs, while the latter will be used to enhance their ability to use airborne thermal smart tools for night surveillance. By purchasing this watch, 100 customers will participate in the great cause of Hublot under the recommendation of the SORAI organization.

  Rhinos are hunted for high-value rhino horns. In this case, two-thirds of the world’s rhino species may be extinct in our lifetime. To prevent this tragedy, Kevin Peterson actively supports the team of experts in rescue and care of rhino cubs who have been abandoned, injured or become ‘orphans’ and returned to the wild as soon as they are healthy. More than 80% of rhinos in the world live in South Africa, so most rhino poaching incidents occur in South Africa’s Kruger National Park.

  At present, there are about 28,000 rhinos in the world, which is 23 times less than the number of African elephants! One of the main threats they face is poaching. Although governments have taken important steps to protect rhinos by enacting regulations, advocating to consumers and changing their behavior remains a key challenge in combating poaching. I would be very happy if Hublot could help raise public awareness of rhino protection. -Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot

  There are five types of rhinoceros on the planet: black rhinoceros and white rhinoceros live on the African continent, while Sumatran rhinoceros, Java rhinoceros and Indian rhinoceros inhabit tropical rainforests and swamps in Asia. The International Union for Conservation of Nature lists black rhinos, Java rhinos, and Sumatran rhinos as ‘extremely endangered’ species, white rhinos as ‘near-endangered’ species, and Indian rhinos as ‘vulnerable’ species. I was shocked by the barbaric acts they faced. Protecting rhinos is an urgent task, and Hublot’s support for this cause will play a pivotal role. The faster we act, the more rhinos we can save. ——Kevin Peterson Founder of SORAI

Action by Kevin Peterson-SORAI

Hublot, a well-known Swiss watch brand, joins hands with Kevin Pietersen and SORAI (SaveOurRhinosAfricaandIndia) to work to protect endangered rhinos

  Kevin Pittson is passionate about rhino protection, so for him, after ending his brilliant cricket career, it is logical to devote himself to this important cause. He founded the SORAI organization in 2018 to support institutions including rangers, nutritionists, ecologists, and other field experts. These agencies work daily to rescue, care for and ensure the full recovery of every mammal found in Asia and Africa. This global initiative aims to raise public awareness of rhino protection and to change public behavior through propaganda and teaching. At the same time, the project also raises funds for the resources and equipment needed for rhino conservation, monitoring, and care activities to continue the necessary work.

BigBangUnicoSORAI watch

  As a symbol of this collaboration, the ceramic dial of this 45mm watch is made of sandy shades from the magnificent African jungle and decorated with a delicate white rhino pattern. The model is equipped with the same color NATO strap, and a camouflage-style spare rubber strap is provided to fully demonstrate its personality. Thanks to the application of the selective vulcanization technology, the decorative patterns in the watch have a very long-lasting color, with a pattern accuracy of one tenth of a millimeter, creating a precedent in the watchmaking world. This special BigBangUnicoSORAI watch will be limited to 100 pieces.

  At the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in Geneva last August, poaching and illegal rhino horn trade became one of the topics of debate, demonstrating the urgent need for action to protect rhinos . We have to race against time and always take action before poachers. The use of innovative technologies such as thermal intelligence allows surveillance teams to act before poachers. We are proud and delighted to be able to support the Kevin Peterson’s SORAI Foundation in achieving the goals of benefiting future generations and maintaining global species diversity. -Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot

The world’s largest rhino sanctuary

  CareforWild, founded by Petronel Nieuwoudt in 2001, is currently the world’s largest rhino orphanage and shelter. The organization was created to ensure the continuation of these rhino species for the benefit of future generations. If the parents of rhino cubs are killed as a result of poaching, their chances of survival are almost zero. CareforWild is committed to ensuring a safe environment for these ‘orphan’ rhino cubs while protecting them while helping them thrive. It covers 7×24 hours of video surveillance and communication networks, monitored by mobile devices, aerial aids, and dogs and their trained poachers.
South African National Park Service

  Established in 1926, it manages 19 national parks in South Africa, including the magnificent Kruger National Park, which covers an area of ​​20,000 square kilometers and is a free habitat for wildlife. Thanks to these funding support, the South African National Park Service will be able to use nighttime onboard thermal intelligence technology as an additional effective measure to combat poaching. In this way, the relevant team of the South African National Park Service can locate the rhinos and intervene more quickly to protect as many mammals that have been hunted for the valuable rhino horns as possible.
