  • Catalogue Essay

    Reference 310.025E is one of Lange & Söhne’s interpretations of one of the most classic, useful and sought-after horological complications: the perpetual calendar. The most noticeable feature of the model is the presence of the large date windows at 12, a “signature” characteristic of the brand. The rest of the information is arranged with supreme elegance around the 3 subsidiary counters: the one at 3 o’clock shows the month and features a smaller subdial for the leap year cycle, the one at 6 shows the phase of the moon and the constant seconds, and the one at 9 indicated the day of the week and the 24 hours indication. The final result is a dial which conveys the complexity of the movement without resulting unencumbered with superfluous information, the sign of a true masterpiece of design.

    Offered in excellent condition and with all of its original accessories, the present watch will delight its new lucky owner for years to come.

  • Artist Biography

    A. Lange & Söhne

    German • 1845

    Originally founded in 1845 by Ferdinand Adolph Lange in Glashütte, Dresden, Germany, the firm established an entire watchmaking culture and industry in Glashütte. The brand quickly became Germany's finest watchmaker, first creating dependable, easy-to-repair watches before going on to produce some of the world's finest complicated pocket watches, including Grande Sonnerie watches, tourbillon watches and Grande Complications.

    On the final day of World War II, their factories were destroyed by Russian bombers, and in 1948 the brand was confiscated by the Soviet Union. Following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1990, Ferdinand's great grandson Walter Lange re-established the brand with the objective to once again produce top-quality luxury watches. Now part of the Richemont Group, its original vintage and modern creations are highly coveted by collectors. Key models from the modern era include the Lange 1, Pour Le Mérite Tourbillon and the Zeitwerk.
