The unusual calendar work proved somewhat awkward compared to other contemporary setting designs on the market, and never gained popularity. Of thirty pieces made, one other, no. 19065, was sold at auction, in 2015. This is the first time the present lot, no. 19079, has been offered at auction.
Fleischhauer's design drawings and the patent for this watch can be found in Reinhard Meis, A. Lange & Söhne, the Watchmakers of Dresden, 1997, pp. 332 & 340.
For a similar calendar watch by A. Lange & Söhne, see, Reinhard Meis, A. Lange & Söhne, the Watchmakers of Dresden, 1997, p. 234, pl. 622, and Martin Huber, Die Uhren von A. Lange & Söhne Glaschütte Sachsen. 1988, p. 119
