  • Catalogue Essay

    The present Anniversary Langematik model was made in a limited edition of 500 pieces only (produced between 2000 and 2004) to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the re-establishment of A. Lange & Söhne. The watch is fitted with a flawless enamel dial that requires exquisite craftsmanship and skills. Visually striking and appealing, the dial is further highlighted with the Roman numeral XII in red. In addition, the watch houses a patented zero-reset mechanism, which re-sets the seconds hand to 0 when the crown is pulled. Encased in platinum, the present watch is offered in pristine condition.

    Offered by the original owner, the piece is in excellent condition. A testament to the care with which the watch was looked after, it is offered complete of its original invoice from 2002 and a service invoice from 2017 (both made by the same retailer, and of course both in the name of the same person), two publications on Lange from 1999 and 2002, and a VHS cassette with the 1999 documentary “When Time Came Home”, detailing the modern rebirth of A. Lange & Söhne.

  • 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.
