Description

The luxury watch manufacturer A. Lange & Söhne, based in Glashütte, Germany. The company was founded in 1845 by Ferdinand Adolph Lange and quickly gained a reputation for producing high-quality timepieces. However, the history of the company is marked by periods of success and setbacks.

Ferdinand Adolph Lange was born in Dresden in 1815 and trained as a watchmaker in Paris and Switzerland. In 1841, he returned to Dresden and began working on a plan to establish a watchmaking industry in Glashütte, a small town in the Ore Mountains. He convinced the Saxon government to invest in the venture, and in 1845, he founded A. Lange & Cie. The company produced pocket watches of exceptional quality and quickly gained a reputation for precision and craftsmanship.

However, the company was hit hard by the economic crisis of 1873, and Ferdinand Adolph Lange died in 1875. His sons, Richard and Emil, took over the company and continued to produce high-quality pocket watches. In the early 20th century, A. Lange & Söhne became known for its innovative designs, including the first wristwatch with a big date display.

During World War II, the company was forced to stop production and was nationalized by the Soviet Union after the war. It was not until the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 that the company was able to return to private ownership. In 1990, Walter Lange, Ferdinand Adolph Lange’s great-grandson, revived the A. Lange & Söhne brand and began producing luxury wristwatches. Today, the company is known for its high-end mechanical watches, which are highly coveted by collectors and connoisseurs alike.
