  • Catalogue Essay

    Introduced in 2000, the Langematik Anniversary Jubilee timepiece was launched as a limited edition series of 500 pieces. To commemorate the new millennium, the famed German manufacturer decided to encase the limited edition piece in platinum and most intriguingly, a white enamel dial.

    To create the “eye-perfect” enamel dial, it takes tremendous craftsmanship filled with over 30 meticulous steps with constant disappointment to finally produce the flawless enamel dial eligible to be encased in an A. Lange & Söhne case. Featured on the dial, a “chemin-de-fer” style chapter ring, painted black roman numerals with “XII” in red, small seconds and its iconic blued steel hands. Beneath the dial, lays the in-house caliber L 921.7 SAX-O-MAT featuring a bidirectional micro rotor in 21K yellow gold and platinum as well as the signature hand-engraved balance cock.

    The present example numbered 462, is offered with the full set of accessories including the guarantee stamped 2002, which is correct for the reference as the production of the Langematik Anniversary Jubilee was ceased later in 2004. This is a wonderful opportunity for lovers of Lange to acquire a rare and attractive limited edition wristwatch by the firm.

  • 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.
