It’s no secret that A. Lange & Söhne makes a fantastic watch. Heck, you could even go so far as to say they create a magnificent opinion, and I don’t think anybody could argue with you. However, a byproduct of being one of the greatest echelons of watchmakers is that the focus tends to get put solely on their most unique pieces. However, this year, my private Lange highlight isn’t the grandest complication — it’s the 1815 Annual Calendar. I listed it as my favorite grail watch in the moment, but knew I needed to spend more time with it. Now, after spending a full week together with the watch ardently in my wrist, I could say without question my instincts were right: this is one amazing watch. But, it’s not without its flaws, and there is even just a little bit of controversy about the 1815 Annual Calendar among Lange purists. “When was the first yearly calendar released?” This was, at one point, something of mild-mannered hazing from Ben to novice watch lovers. Our intern’s answer? “I’d imagine mid 1800s sometime? “An annual calendar is not the same thing than the usual triple or “easy” calendar. Additionally, it is different in the perpetual calendar. Learn the differences today so that you don’t inspire another HODINKEE narrative similar to this one.
