"There’s something one should expect not only of a watch but also of oneself: to never stand still" Walter Lange
A. Lange & Söhne watchmakers create timepieces that are steeped in history. Since the company's foundation in Glashütte, Germany, it has been known for its quality aesthetics, precision and intricacies - which make its products truly unique and highly coveted. Today, Lange crafts only a few thousand wristwatches a year.
Dresden watchmaker Ferdinand Adolph Lange laid the cornerstone of Saxony’s precision watchmaking industry when he established his manufacturing site in 1845. The company was expropriated after World War II and the name A. Lange & Söhne nearly vanished. In 1990, Ferdinand Adolph Lange’s great-grandson Walter Lange had the courage to make a new start.
Lange watches are endowed exclusively with proprietary movements that are lavishly decorated and twice assembled by hand. With 66 manufacture calibres developed since 1990, A. Lange & Söhne has secured a top-tier position in the world of watchmaking. Iconic collections such as the LANGE 1 with the first outsize date in a regularly produced wristwatch and the ZEITWERK with its precisely jumping numerals display rank among the company’s greatest successes. Sophisticated complications such as the ZEITWERK MINUTE REPEATER, the TOURBOGRAPH PERPETUAL “Pour le Mérite” and the TRIPLE SPLIT reflect the Maison’s determination to achieve ever new pinnacles in horological artistry.
