Lange 1815 Kalenderwoche

Special 1815 Langes do not come by frequently. And one wihch is made with a special complication for to celebrate a retailer's Anniversary is even more special. The Kalenderwoche, or calender week is one example.

The use of week of the year, is a rather German business tool...many German business people would look up their calendar in search for a free spot would propose..."how about week 26?"...most of us, who do not use this style of numbering sometimes go, "ah?". Simple and of course logical enough, it refers to the week number from 1 to 52 for each week of the year. And to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the legendary Munich retailer Huber, Lange introduced the 1815 Kalenderwoche.

Introduced in 2006, and limited to 50 pieces in platinum, yellow gold and pink gold, the 3/4 plate is engraved with gold lettering "Andreas Huber Munchen 1856-2006"

The dial is beautiful, simple 1815 layout, with the additional hand, centrally mounted, to indicate the current calendar week.

Measuring 38.4mm, the new hand wound movement is the caliber L045.1, has two additional pushers which are used to adjust the calendar displays.
