  • Catalogue Essay

    In 2000, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the re-establishment of A. Lange & Söhne after a long hiatus, the Langematik Anniversary was launched. For this commemorative endeavor, 500 pieces were created, and this example is numbered 196.

    Most impressively, the watch features an gorgeously executed white enamel dial with red Roman XII. This red 12 refers to old pocket watches, as the finest quality was also made with a red 12. The mechanical automatic self-winding ALS caliber L921.7 "Sax-O-Mat" movement is made from Glashütte 3/4 plate in German silver, with fausses cotes embellishment. It's constructed with 36 jewels, 307 components, a hand-engraved balance bridge, a shock absorber mechanism, and a straight-line lever escapement.

  • 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.
