In 1994, when the Lange was revived, the big calendar was born. His creations were inspired by the five-minute digital clock of the Dresden Semper Opera designed by his founder, who participated in the design of his father-in-law in the 19th century. As one of the most recognizable designs in the brand’s collection, the big calendar has witnessed the brilliant moments of each generation of Lange watches.
