A.Lange & Sohne
When Dresden watchmaker Ferdinand Adolph Lange established his watch manufactory in 1845, he laid the cornerstone of Saxony’s precision watchmaking. In 1990, Ferdinand Adolph Lange’s great-grandson Walter Lange re-launched the brand and during a period of a little more than 20 years, A. Lange & Söhne developed 54 manufacture calibres and established hallmarks including screwed gold chatons, diamond endstones, and thermally blued screws, all contributing to the true luxury of an A. Lange & Söhne timepiece. Lange watchmakers craft only a few thousand wristwatches in gold or platinum each year, all endowed exclusively with proprietary movements that are lavishly decorated and assembled by hand. In a spacious, new manufactory recently completed in August 2015, A. Lange & Söhne timepieces are crafted from the most precious materials with the utmost of artisanal skill, thus only in small editions. In keeping with its commitment to craftsmanship and innovation, A Lange & Sohne continues to secure a top-tier position among the world’s finest watch brands.
Launched during Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie in January 2016, The A. Lange & Söhne Datograph Perpetual Tourbillon is the latest masterpiece from the Saxon watchmaker, pairing three complications with five supplementary functions. A horological work of art, the black solid-silver dial of this new model contrasts beautifully against the 41.5 millimetre platinum case as well as hands and hour markers in rhodiumed gold. The Datograph Perpetual Tourbillon is yet another example of A. Lange & Söhne’s determination to never stand still and to test the limits of mechanical horology.
