Among the many excellent things that come from good old Germany is the remarkable watch brand, A. Lange & Sohne. The famous manufacturing firm is the tradition of ingenious minds that continue to influence the course of watchmaking conventions. Ferdinand A. Lange, esteemed pioneer in horology, takes credit for more than 27 patents and is best known for his metal alloy for watch springs. He founded A. Lange & Sohne (literally A. Lange and Sons) in 1848. The Richard Lange collection is a tribute to Ferdinand, the trailblazing family patriarch. The timepieces of this set are also an acknowledgement of the crucial role of A. Lange watches in scientific observation not just as timetellers but as precise measuring devices. Until now, A. Lange watches are sought for their superior rate accuracy, dependability and crisp legibility - characteristics that not only scientists love to make use of.
