Notes

A. Lange & Söhne, “Langematik Perpetual”
 
With its self-winding calibre L 922.1, “Sax-O-Mat”, the “Langematik Perpetual” was the very first perpetual calendar wristwatch made by A. Lange & Söhne, launched in 2001, with the first sales in the late-2002.
 
The present model dating from 2003 is therefore one of the oldest produced by the Glashütte manufacture.
 
In the watch reference, the letters “F” and “E” stand for folding clasp (“F”) and English dial (“E”).
