  • Catalogue Essay

    The Langematik collection was introduced in 2004 and was born during the heights of the re-establishment of the firm. Having developed a reputation of executing timepieces to the highest quality retaining its traditional approach to watchmaking, whenever the Saxon-based firm releases a new model, they never fail to impress. Timepieces from the Langematik collection all share a common trait of bearing an in-house self-winding caliber with an off-centered SAX-0-MAT micro rotor.

    The Langematik Perpetual was one of the very first models launched in the collection featuring the firm’s signature large date display and a traditional perpetual calendar dial layout consisting of moon phases, 24-hour indication, leap year indication as well as a zero-reset function that enables precise timekeeping where the constant seconds hand returns to zero when the crown is pulled out for time adjusting.

    The present example in 18K yellow gold from circa 2005 belongs to an early example of the reference featuring a date adjuster at the 10 o’clock position. Complete with its full set of accessories, the watch is further well-preserved with minimal signs of use and wear.

  • 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.
