  • Catalogue Essay

    Fusing delicate designs with everyday function, the Langematik Perpetual is one of the most sought-after interpretations among A. Lange & Söhne’s perpetual calendar variety. The most apparent characteristic of this yellow gold ref. 310.021 is its large date windows at 12. Easily recognisable as one of the first iterations to offer this display, it became a recurring feature included in many of the German watchmakers’ later models. Following this attribute, the traditional perpetual calendar dial layout consists of three smaller subsidiary counters: a moon phase indication, a 24-hours indication, a leap year indication, along with a patented zero-reset mechanism that assures fast and precise time-setting.

    The combination of these intricate complications has resulted in a beautifully balanced cream dial framed with an elegant yellow gold case. Accompanied with its proof of origin, the present A. Lange & Söhne Langematik Perpetual ref. 310.021 is 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.
