A. Lange & Söhne Watches
The unique character of A. Lange & Söhne watches is rooted in the illustrious history of the German state of Saxony. In 1845, Lange was founded by Ferdinand Adolph Lange, the uncontested founder of Germany's precision watchmaking industry, in the town of Glashutte, near Dresden.
Lange timepieces are endowed with in-house designed calibers. 46 Lange movements have been launched since 1990. With very few exceptions, all parts of a watch are produced in the manufacture. Even the pulsating heart of each mechanical timepiece- the balance spring. Only very few watchmaking companies in the world have this ability.
Every single part of a Lange movement is decorated by hand with a meticulously applied surface finish- even parts that no one will ever see again. This extraordinary focus on craftsmanship means that only a small number of A. Lange & Söhne watches can be manufactured each year.Collections:
A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Watches
The Lange 1 is one of the most acclaimed mechanical wristwatches. With its asymmetric dials and patented outsize date, it has become A. Lange & Söhne's most iconic collection. The watch collection presents many of the features found in Lange's now legendary pocket watches, including the elegantly hand-engraved balance cock and three-quarter plate in German silver.
A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Watches
The Saxonia emphasizes well-balanced dial design and exacting attention to detail. The dials prominently feature Lange’s famous manufactury logo with the Glashutte statement or origin, emphasizing the watch’s Saxon origin.
A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Watches
The 1815 exemplifies the classically elegant style of the A. Lange & Söhne manufacture. The 1815 reveals its true magnificence through its exquisitely finished movement, easily viewable through the sapphire-crystal, transparent case back.
A. Lange & Söhne Richard Lange Watches
The Richard Lange is Lange’s first observation wristwatch. It offers superb legibility, extremely accurate time-keeping, and a classic style. The blued steel sweep seconds hand is complemented by a stop-seconds mechanism. Easily visible through the sapphire-crystal case back lies a movement composed of larger than average parts, which offer superior reliability.
A. Lange & Söhne Langematik Perpetual Watches
The Langematik Perpetual is the first self-winding, mechanical wristwatch with a perpetual calendar, outsized date, and “zero reset” mechanism that allows the calendar and moon phase sub-dials to be advanced individually and- with the push of a single button- collectively as well. Despite having an extremely elaborate movement, the Langematik Perpetual receives top scores with respect to reliability and user-friendliness. The case is made of 18k rose gold or platinum.
A. Lange & Söhne Datograph Watches
A. Lange & Söhne's Datograph is an homage to the finest Saxon watchmaking traditions. The Datograph offers a chronometer with classic column wheel architecture, a flyback function, an elapsed minutes counter, and the patented Lange oversized date. A sapphire-crystal case back reveals this elegant and elaborate movement.
A. Lange & Söhne Double Split Watches
The Double Split is a technological marvel. For the first time in the history of watchmaking, the Double Split combines a flyback chronograph with not simply the conventional rattrapante sweep-seconds hand, but also a rattrapante minute counter. The result of this innovation is that owners can now use the rattrapante mechanism for measurements that last longer than 60-seconds.
A. Lange & Söhne Lange Zeitwerk Watches
In 2009, A. Lange & Söhne shocked the watch world when it launched the first truly mechanical watch to tell time without rotating hands. The Zeitwerk's Calibre L043.1 manual winding movement features a jumping numerals mechanism for hours and minutes, both of which leap forth instantaneously, keeping time dependably.
