    With A. Lange & Söhne Guarantee Certificate dated 28 February 2001 and stamped by Wempe, Bremen, operating instructions and original fitted black leather presentation box.

    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 manufacturer.

    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.
