Haute Complication: A. Lange & Söhne Langematik Perpetual Honeygold

Few watches are as well proportioned as the Langematik Perpetual from A. Lange & Söhne. With a diameter of 38.5 mm it is rather modest in size. Combined with a height of 10.2 mm it sits extremely comfortable on the wrist, yet still packs a punch because of its expressive design. The watch features a perpetual calendar with large date, moon phase and 24-hour indicator. All this information is presented in a very balanced and legible way, which is definitely an important part of the charm of this A. Lange & Söhne.

As the name already indicates is the case, but also the crown, buckle and many of the parts on the dial crafted from honey gold. This is a proprietary alloy of A. Lange & Söhne that was introduced in 2010, and since then used for several of their watches. While it still has the hue of yellow gold, it is a bit warmer in character. The added advantage is that this 18k gold is also much harder than regular 18k gold, so its precious appearance stays better preserved.

The dial of the Langematik Perpetual is subtle yet full of details. It consists of several levels, which gives quite a bit of depth to it. This is further amplified by the large date as well as the moon phase disc. The dial is surrounded by a railroad track, with on the inside a textured ring that serves as the background for the Roman numerals which are, just as the hands, also crafted from honey gold.

The back of the Langematik Perpetual shows the delicately hand-engraved balance cock, but also the beautiful micro-rotor. The movement by itself is also a testimony why this watch is so well proportioned, as it fills out the case so nicely. Blued screws, Geneva stripping and a perfect finish are things we have come to expect from A. Lange & Söhne, and are an important part of what made them to a benchmark in the world of the haute horlogerie.
