Apocalypse (Not) Now: Lange Launches Perpetual Calender Watch
The Lange 1 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar watch
According to followers of the Mayan calendar, the world ends tomorrow, when its 400-year-old codex comes to an end. But if you're following the Lange 1 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar, you needn't worry about that happening for another 88 years.
One of three new Lange 1 time pieces from A Lange & Sohne, the watch comes with a calendar that will not have to be corrected until the year 2100, and then too, by just a day. As a first, the months of the year appear on a rotating peripherial ring on the dial, with an arrow pointing to the right month. A counter above it helps keep track of the leap year. Another indicator on the top left also points out the days of the week. The tourbillon remains hidden, under the 12mm thick case of the 41.9mm wide Lange 1 watch.
Time and date-conscious watch collectors will like this Lange 1 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar for its meticulous craftsmanship and time keeping. Launched in January this year, the watch comes in two versions - a line of 100 platinum limited editions as well as the regular 18k pink gold versions.
