Footnotes

  • One of the few prestigious watchmaking house that was not from Switzerland, A. Lange & Sohne was established in 1845 by Ferdinand Adolph Lange in Glashütte, Germany. He introduced the metric system in watchmaking that simplified production process, also invented the three-quarter plate that became the hallmark of the brand. His sons Emil and Richard Lange inherited the company in 1868 and renamed it A. Lange & Sohne; together they brought the brand to success and received numerous patents for technical development in movements. Though the company ceased to exist for 40 years after World War II, Walter Lange, great grandson of Ferdinand A. Lange, restored the company in 1990 and quickly took the company and its watches back to the world stage, it also led Glashutte to reclaim the centre of German watchmaking. Until this day, all movement are designed, manufactured, and assembled in-house. The lots presented here are fine examples of the company's tradition and superb craftsmanship.
