A. Lange & Sohne Watches

Brief Brand History for :

In 1845, Ferdinand Adolph Lange founded his watch workshop in Glashütte, a town which would become synonymous with German watchmaking. The company quickly grew and Ferdinand’s sons, Emil and Richard, won acclaim for their respective business acumen and watchmaking prowess. The company suffered financial difficulties due to the First World War and the subsequent Weimar Republic. The A. Lange & Söhne factory and headquarters were destroyed during a bombing raid at the end of the Second World War. The company was nationalized along with other Glashütte watchmakers in 1948. After Germany’s reunification in 1990, Adolph’s great grandson, Walter Lange, decided to continue his family’s legacy by reviving the company. Richemont acquired A. Lange & Söhne in 2000. In its recent history, Lange has pioneered technical firsts such as the first wristwatch with a fusée and chain transmission and the first watch with a triple rattrapante mechanism.
