A terrible oversight... Lange 1 Perpetual Calendar

May 20, 2022,22:55 PM


I purchased a Lange 1 Perpetual Calendar last year and sinfully forgot to post about it here. The following shots are meant as atonement: 

It is a truly wonderful watch. Great readability for a QP and the instantaneous jumping indications often forced me to keep the lights on come midnight.

It joined this collection:

PS: you like heavy weights . That is a very, very desirable box with many grails...I would dream to own that 5270P, 5236P or this Lange 1 PC, just one will do.

Thanks Clueless

It’s unforgivable indeed… I appreciate the kind words on the collection. Those you mentioned are certainly among my favorites, along with the Centigraphe and Triple Split. Have a great weekend.

I’ll do my best!

You too!

Congrats! I love how the QP function is integrated into the Lange 1 design language. A true masterpiece!

I've seen this one along side the salmon dial version and prefer this one!

I’ve hesitated a lot with the salmon.

But at the end of the day I decided it might compete too much with my 5270. Thanks for the kind words.

You made the right move

You don't want those two battling one another, you want them each in their own place. And the warmth of rose gold brown dial is a really really good place for that spectacular L1 to be!

You have an amazing PC

addition and on curating such a fabulous collection. Some very very impressive timepieces there. You are a man of fine taste!

Kind words!

Thank you and have a great weekend.

This is a stunning piece!

The PC display on the dial is done brilliantly, and I do love the fact it‘s an instantaneous PC. This adds so much to the spectacle! I join the others in congratulating you for assembling an outstanding collection. No clunkers in this garage… Best, Daniel... 

Thank you Daniel

I second everything you just said about the PC.

Thank you Nicolas.

I often compare the L1 PC with my Patek 5236: They both have the same functionality but could not be more different. While the Lange has an amazing display, the Patek probably has it beat on the back side with that lovely platinum micro-rotor: Cheers. ...  

A dream

This Lange has it all. A beautiful movement, a superb dial and technically an outstanding watch. Congrats to such a watch!

Thank you Count

Funny you should mention that…

 By: David_S : May 21st, 2022-11:14
Due to life’s randomness, I have a couple of Patek (1 for me, 1 for my wife) coming in next week…

This watch is a true beauty

Not often seen, but a real treasure. Nice collection, too 👌

Thanks a lot

Truly a sin to have waited! Such a box of grails

Congratulations on the Instantaneous L1 perpetual! I love the chapter ring jump for the months.

Thanks Darrony

Congratulations 🥂

Love this piece - much more appealing to me than the limited WG salmon dial piece. May I ask, is the instantaneous calendar working always exactly at midnight? In all the videos I’ve seen it does appear exact. I ask because I was amazed to find Patek have... 

Thanks Russel

 By: David_S : May 23rd, 2022-08:44
Yes, the calendar, in my experience, changes exactly at midnight. The salmon dial is absolutely stunning as well and I hesitated quite a bit but I have a Patek 5270P with a salmon dial and I try to keep internal competition within the collection to a mini... 

Huge Congrats, David!

 By: Langepedia : May 27th, 2022-20:19
A worthy addition to your already brilliant collection. If I may add a few things on the accuracy: Unfortunately the precise change is not always the case. It highly depends on the adjustment made by watchmaker, and the age of the watch as I experienced. ... 

Interesting 🤔

Thanks Langepedia

I'll try to do a few more observations to confirm.

You are forgiven!!!
