In conjunction with the launch of its first boutique in Russia, A. Lange & Söhne introduces the Langematik Perpetual in white gold.  This model joins two iterations of the Langematik Perpetual currently offered by Lange, one in pink gold, one in platinum.   The watch also (obviously) has a black dial, though this is not the first Langematik Perpetual to have a black dial (in 2008 Lange made a limited edition in rose gold + a black dial for Singapore retailer Sincere Watch, as noted here).
