  • Catalogue Essay

    Cased in yellow gold, reference 310.021 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, which is 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 result is a beautiful balanced dial, offering the viewer both aesthetic flair and incredibly useful information. Preserved in excellent condition, this timepiece furthermore displays a beautifully decorated movement, perfectly imbuing the spirit of the German manufacturer.

  • 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.
