The Langematik Sax-O-Mat is one of the company’s earlier designs following its rebirth in 1994. The ref. 301.027 was available from 1997 to 2004. The present watch in white gold retains an incredible overall condition, displaying honest and clean attributes that A. Lange & Söhne is perhaps best known for. It features a round case of quite generous 37 mm with elegant thin lugs and a bold polished convex bezel. The black dial sports elongated baton indexes that fit well with the long lumed alpha hands. At 6 o’clock, the oversized decentral seconds register. Turning the watch on the other side, it has a transparent case back showing the automatic movement, caliber L921.2. The movement features a unique zero-reset functionality, as alluded to by the ’0’ in the Sax-0-Mat name, that allows the second hand to be reset to zero when the crown is pulled out for precise setting of the time. Produced for just seven years and much appreciated by collectors, this exquisite and historically important watch is offered with the original box and warranty confirming its sale on 20 April 2001.
