A. Lange & Sohne

The A. Lange & Shne story is the history of a watchmaking dynasty whose roots go back to the Saxon court under | Augustus the Strong, it is from these illustrious surroundings that | Adolph Lange set out to the secluded Ore Mountains in 1845 to establish the Saxon precision watchmaking industry in Glashtte. He and his successors established new standards in high-end horology, and it did not take long before timekeeping instruments crafted by A. Lange & Shne ranked among the world's most coveted treasures.

When Germany was reunited in 1990, Adolph Lange's great-grandson Walter Lange returned to Glashtte to restore the family watchmaking heritage - with an innovative spirit that once before had brought world fame to the town. Only four years later in the Palace of Dresden, he proudly presented the first Lange watches of the new era: the LANGE 1, the TOURBILLON "Pour le Mrite", the SAXONIA and the ARKADE.
