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.
