The present watch is an excellent early example from Lange's series of self-winding watches. In total, Lange & Söhne produced approximately 38 self-winding watches between 1891-1920. This production number includes pieces that were made with or without date, see M. Huber, Die Uhren von A. Lange & Söhne, p.169, table 19.
While "self-winding" watches were made as early as 1800, most notably by Breguet, Lange decided to base their design upon the movement patented by the Dresden company, Dürrstein & Co. To the best of our knowledge, less than ten have been offered at auction.
