  • Catalogue Essay

    First introduced in 2001, the A. Lange & Söhne Langematik Perpetual is the firm’s first self-winding perpetual calendar wristwatch produced featuring the manufacturer’s off-centred 21K gold SAX-O-MAT rotor. Powered by the in-house cal. L922.1 with zero-reset function composed of its signature German silver, it indicated moon phases and leap year featuring its iconic oversized date display at 12 o’clock. An impressive movement, the perpetual calendar is accurate up to the year 2100 if the watch is consistently running.

    The present example Langematik Perpetual belongs to one of the rarest variants featuring a 38.5mm case in the firm’s patented 18K honey gold featured only in special limited edition timepieces by the firm. Released in 2019, the honey gold edition was limited to only 100 pieces. Being a more robust material than regular 18K gold, the honey gold was developed not just for its aesthetical attributes but a material more scratch-resistant than its regular counterparts. Offered in pristine condition, the present example numbered 45 is complete with its full set of accessories and is a wonderful and rare example, a perfect addition to any Lange collection and a practical and elegant timepiece even for daily 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.
