Distinctive caliber and dial design
This sophisticated technology was ultimately combined with a very distinctive calibre and dial design. The striking feature of this design is that the large date and the two auxiliary dials form an equilateral triangle. The A. Lange & Söhne Datograph has a harmonious charisma thanks to this striking dial design. Of course, the user also benefits from this design. Because the readability of the dial is very good and is not affected by anything.
Beginnings, new foundation and today
The company, which today produces the A. Lange & Söhne Datograph, was originally founded in 1845 by the Saxon watchmaker Ferdinand Adolph Lange in Glashütte near Dresden. The clocks produced were therefore initially a product of the primeval art of making from the Erzgebirge mountains. The sons of the founder, Richard and Emil Lange, also joined the company in 1868. The company A. Lange & Söhne existed until 1948, when it was expropriated by the Soviet occupiers. Until then, the sons of Emil Lange, Gerhard, Otto and Rudolf Lange had managed the fortunes of the company. By 1948, more than 30 watch patents had been created under the founder and his descendants. After the expropriation, the family fled to West Germany. At the end of 1990, the grandson of the former company founder, Walter Lange, a son of Rudolf Lange, decided to acquire the trademark rights of the once family-owned company and founded A. Lange. Lange & Söhne" new. Today, the company belongs to the Swiss Richemont Group. Today, production takes place again in Glashütte near Dresden.
