A high complication – that is, a watch with a mix of complex functions – is a Lange signature. For the 20th anniversary of the Langematik Perpetual, a watch with a perpetual calendar and an outsize date, Lange has produced two 50-piece limited-editions, one in white gold and another in pink gold.
Both have dressy, midnight blue dials and sit on blue leather straps, but the magic is in the simplicity of the way their functions are managed. For example, the calendar displays – day, date, month, leap year, moonphase – are adjustable via a single corrector, where normally there’d be several. That makes living with a perpetual calendar, which tracks month lengths through leap years but can be a fiddle to own, a doddle.
