Can you tell time in a more elegant style? A. Lange & Sohne classy timepieces combine fashion with precision manufacturing. Its Saxon origins reveal the brand’s time-honored craftsmanship roots that date back to the days of Augustus the Strong. When founder Adolph Lange created his first A. Lange & Sohne watches in 1868, it quickly established the famed A. Lange & Sohne signature of watchmaking precision with timeless beauty. A timepiece became an accurate mechanism to mark time as it was to announce one’s fashionable arrival. The same dedication to engineering perfection and artistry lives today, spawning a range of A. Lange & Sohne watches that feature, among others, 18k rose gold compartments, silver dials, leather straps, and jewel accents. A. Lange & Sohne movements are in-house manufactured that limits production; thus, watch ownership is reserved to the privileged few. Among its signatures, the Datagraph up/down feature parades a column-wheel control, flyback mechanism, accurate jumping minute counter, and a proprietary oscillation system that set the benchmark for chronograph design. Its 556 components are precisely placed to create a seamless complication that, not only tells people time, but tells that you carry a sophisticated taste for style.
