The company A. Lange & Söhne originates in Glashütte, Germany, in 1845 thanks to Ferdinand Adolph Lange and his sons Richard and Emil, who inherit their father’s profession, combining it with passion. Along with the historical developments involving Europe and Germany at the time, the year 1994 symbolises a time of rebirth.
Today, Lange crafts only a few thousand wristwatches in gold or platinum per year. They are endowed exclusively with proprietary movements that are lavishly decorated and assembled by hand. With 62 manufacture calibres developed since 1994, A. Lange & Söhne has secured a top-tier position among the world’s finest watch brands.
Brand icons 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 manufactory’s determination to achieve ever new pinnacles in horological artistry.
