Made for eternity

Celebrating Father’s Day with the LANGE 1 PERPETUAL CALENDAR

On Father’s Day, a family pays tribute to a man who is central to their lives – the day signifies a warm acknowledgement of the dads they have been and the rewarding moments yet to come. It is also a chance for a father to realise his own true merit, the highest reward gained throughout the journey of fatherhood. Humbly declining an honour bestowed on him by the King of Saxony, Ferdinand Adolph Lange stated in 1866: “A real man honours himself”. This internal signal of virtue is embodied externally by A. Lange & Söhne’s recently launched LANGE 1 PERPETUAL CALENDAR.

The LANGE 1 PERPETUAL CALENDAR is oriented towards eternity. Once properly set, its ingenious mechanism is programmed to reliably indicate each month change until the year 2100. In addition, it is a helpful daily companion for fathers – helping to plan and align all relevant business and family dates to make sure they can ultimately enjoy the most precious moments of life with their beloved family.

The LANGE 1 PERPETUAL CALENDAR is a timepiece for connoisseurs who appreciate the subtle differences. Apart from the typical Lange outsize date, a retrograde day-of-the-week display and a leap-year indication, the watch features a peripheral month ring and an ultra-precise moon-phase display that also shows whether it is day or night. The newly developed model with a case diameter of 41.9 millimetres is available in pink gold with a grey dial made of silver or – in a limited edition of 150 watches – in white gold with a solid pink-gold dial.

The self-winding movement L021.3 is A. Lange & Söhne’s 67th in-house manufactured calibre. It is based on the calibre L021.1 of the LANGE 1 DAYMATIC and comes with a newly developed winding mechanism. Its technical features include a unidirectionally winding rotor in 21-carat gold with an additional centrifugal mass in platinum, a power reserve of 50 hours, and a cam-poised balance that runs with a frequency of 21,600 semi-oscillations per hour.

About A. Lange & Söhne
Dresden watchmaker Ferdinand Adolph Lange laid the cornerstone of Saxony's precision watchmaking industry when he established his manufactory in 1845. His precious pocket watches remain highly coveted among collectors all over the world. The company was expropriated after World War II, and the name A. Lange & Söhne nearly vanished. In 1990, Ferdinand Adolph Lange’s great-grandson Walter Lange had the courage to relaunch the brand. Today, Lange crafts only a few thousand wristwatches per year, predominantly in gold or platinum. They are endowed exclusively with proprietary movements that are lavishly decorated by hand and assembled twice. With 67 manufacture calibres developed since 1990, A. Lange & Söhne has secured a top-tier position in the world of watchmaking. Brand icons such as the LANGE 1 with the first outsize date in a regularly produced wristwatch, and the ZEITWERK with its precisely jumping numerals dis­play, rank among the company's greatest successes. Exceptional complications such as the ZEITWERK MINUTE REPEATER, the TRIPLE SPLIT, and the so far most complicated model, the GRAND COMPLICATION presented in 2013 in a six-watch limited edition, reflect the manufactory's determination to achieve ever new pinnacles in its tradition-steeped horo­logical artistry. Launched in 2019, the sporty-elegant ODYSSEUS marks the beginning of a new chapter for A. Lange & Söhne.
