"There is something that you demand not only of your watch, but also of yourself: never stand still" Walter Lange
It is hard to deny that behind the A. Lange & Söhne watch brand, there is a fiery entrepreneurial spirit that continues to burn brightly. The team that is currently in charge of the company are immensely proud of every watch manufactured. And every watch is a symbol of everything that the company stands for.
A.Lange & Söhne is driven by passion and dedication to perfection. These are the traits that keeps them moving forward.
With a dedicated approach to innovation, and being ahead of the game when it comes to the artistry that goes into every watch produced, A. Lange & Söhne is ambitious in their goals.
After all, this is a company that fully believes, and has in many ways proven, that anything is possible.
For A. Lange & Söhne, time is what reveals who we are. This is one of the many principles that the company brings into their day to day work. They understand that time is what defines us and gives us space, so they view the concept of time as something truly special. It is only as time passes that we see our ideas and special moments.
For them, using this approach in watchmaking, makes the entire experience of crafting the perfect watch something truly special.
When compared to similar luxury brands, A. Lange & Söhne is youthful. Founded in the 1940s, the company has undergone a lot of changes, through incredibly difficult events. The company pioneer, Walter Lange, was born to be a watchmaker, and spent much of his childhood tinkering around his father’s workshop, learning how to work with his hands.
In 1941, Walter went to a watchmaking school in Karlstein, Austria, and while there, his life was turned somewhat upside down by the Second World War. In fact the school’s main production building was bombed in 1945.
During this time, Walter’s studies were put on hold and then, once he had completed his schooling, and his family had got somewhat back on their feet in Germany following the war, the Soviet Occupation of Germany began.
Once again, the A. Lange & Söhne brand had all but disappeared.
It would only be after the fall of the Berlin War in 1989, that the company would have the space and freedom to grow. A. Lange & Söhne initially started out as a family business, based in Glashütte. The company started from nothing and is today a sought after, luxury German watch brand.
A. Lange & Söhne has 6 watch “families” or collections. Each collection has a variety of watches to choose from, allowing the buyer to select the one that best suits their need or the occasion.
Currently, the watch families include the Odysseus, the Lange 1, the Zeitwerk, the Saxonia, the 1815 and the Richard Lange. All of the watches are created using the finest materials and of course, expert craftsmanship. TopWatch stocks a collection of these exquisite watches.
