In horological terms, it is also vested with all of the attributes that constitute a genuine A. Lange & Söhne Cabaret ‘Soirée’ Replica Watch: the sapphire-crystal caseback, secured with six screws, sets a magnificent stage for the calibre L931.4 form movement. The rectangular heart of the CABARET “Soirée” is crafted in-house by Lange as well. With its unique dial design, it is the face that stands out in the crowd and unlike any other watch symbolises the peerless horological artistry pursued in Glashütte.
Despite the fact that its case diameter is only 36 millimetres, the LITTLE LANGE 1 “Soirée” is endowed with all the features that define the LANGE 1: the exclusive L901.4 manufacture movement with a twin mainspring barrel and a power-reserve indicator of more than three days. Since its debut nearly 13 years ago, it has ranked among the world’s most acclaimed precision timekeeping instruments.But the inner values are just as convincing: the movement of the LITTLE LANGE 1 “Soirée” originates from the a.lange & sohne cabaret replica, meanwhile a true classic. With its three-quarter plate in untreated German silver, the screwed gold chatons, the screw balance, and the hand-engraved balance cock with the patented whiplash precision index adjuster, it is a delight to behold.
What they share is the warm glow of the 18- carat pink gold case crowned by the panache of consummately set brilliants on the bezel – 52 in the LITTLE LANGE 1 and even 70 in the CABARET. The brilliant-set bezels eloquently frame the black iridescence of the mother-of-pearl facing on the solid-silver dials – asymmetrically laid out in the LITTLE LANGE 1, rectangular and strictly symmetric in the CABARET.
Pink-gold hands and appliques create an aesthetically convincing contrast in both models. And the overall appearance of both “Soirées” is exquisitely accented with a chestnut strap in ray leather: due to its pearly structure, this supple material was already coveted during the art deco period. The Lange outsize date with pink-gold aperture surrounds is another eye-catcher. The buckle in solid pink gold is the perfect finishing touch.It will be difficult for the cosmopolitan woman to make a choice between the LITTLE LANGE 1 “Soirée” and the rectangular CABARET “Soirée”. Despite identical materials, the two “Soirées” are formally distinctive.
The warm glow of pink gold, the sparkling fire of diamonds, the scintillating sheen of mother-of-pearl, and the a.lange & sohne replica watch appearance of ray leather: these four precious materials from the depths of the earth and the sea have formed a fascinating alliance in two timepieces of the A. Lange & Söhne jewellery watch collection, making them “stars of the evening” wherever they appear.
