    Accompanied by A. Lange & Söhne International Guarantee, instruction manual, original fitted leather presentation box and outer packagings.

    The Anniversary Langematik model was made in a limited edition of 500 examples in platinum between 2000 and 2004 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the re-establishment of the manufactory.

    The movement is fitted with Lange's patented zero-reset mechanism which simplifies the synchronisation of the watch with a time signal. When the crown is pulled, the seconds hand automatically jumps to the 12 o'clock or zero position.
