A. Lange & Söhne
Every Lange movement reflects the more than 160-year heritage of the Saxon manufactory.
The company’s history is imbued in the characteristic features that make A. Lange & Söhne timepieces distinctive masterpieces. The LANGE 1 incorporates the knowledge and the skills of an entire dynasty of watchmakers – the lineage that dates back 160 years to Ferdinand A. Lange. The founder’s great-grandson Walter Lange has preserved its grand heritage in precision watchmaking to this very day.
The manufacture movement of the LANGE 1 showcases many of the traditional elements of the legendary pocket watches signed by Lange, including the three-quarter plate made of untreated German silver, the screwed gold chatons, and the hand-engraved balance cock with the whiplash precision index adjuster.
Ever since the first collection of the new era was presented in 1994, the LANGE 1 has been the face of A. Lange & Söhne. Largely unchanged as regards its design, the second generation is endowed with a new manually wound calibre and a jumping outsize date. It advances instantaneously by one day at midnight and therefore always delivers a doubt-free reading.
