A tradition that never stands still
Every time period has its own challenges. In 2020, everyone’s focus has been on courage, perseverance, and new trailblazing ideas. These are the same characteristics that helped the founder of A. Lange & Söhne, Ferdinand Adolph Lange, make his dreams come true. He wanted nothing less than to craft "the world's finest watches" - in his own manufactory. 175 years ago, for this purpose, he chose an ambitious yet compassionate way: he moved to the impoverished town of Glashütte, Germany, with the aim to give a new perspective and hope to the people living there. This makes us proud to represent the brand and introduce their timepieces to our customers.
His courage paid off. Through perseverance, revolutionary ideas, and superb quality, he realized his vision and defined standards which still apply at A. Lange & Söhne today. The work of their modern watchmakers is motivated by this tradition, innovation, and the quest for perfection. These values guide the company as they focus on the future.
In order to pay tribute to this great watchmaking pioneer, A. Lange & Söhne launched an anniversary collection entitled "Homage to F.A. Lange" highlighting the 1815 watch family, named after the year in which Ferdinand Adolph Lange was born. We invite you to discover the 1815 collection that features the Arabic numerals and the railway-track minute scale, both design codes inspired by historic pocket watches.
