  • Catalogue Essay

    - Produced from 2001 until 2017, the A. Lange & Söhne’s Langematik Perpetual is the firm’s first self-winding perpetual calendar wristwatch produced featuring the manufacturer’s off-centred 21K gold rotor.

    - The timepiece features classic aesthetics whilst highlighting the unrivalled skill and craftmanship of the brand. The timepiece has a contemporary appeal thanks to its in-house caliber L922.1 with zero-reset function.

    - Early Langematik Perpetual models like the present example, feature a rectangular case pusher at 10 o’clock, along with three recessed calendar correctors. In 2005-2006 such feature was replaced with a recessed corrector. The most noticeable feature of the model is the presence of the large date windows at 12 o 'clock, a “signature” characteristic of the brand. The rest of the information is arranged with supreme elegance around the 3 subsidiary counters.

    - The present model also features another Lange signature: the zero reset mechanism, meaning the seconds hand resets to zero when the crown is pulled.

    - The present platinum model, in excellent overall condition is further complete with its full set of accessories.

  • 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.
