A. Lange & Söhne - Never stand still
The reunification of Germany 25 years ago created the prerequisites for a new start of A. Lange & Söhne. This anniversary is a welcome occasion for a look forward. The year of reunification brought with it a profound sense of awakening paired with uncertainty. The challenge was to make the right decision at the right time. This also applied to Walter Lange’s plan for a new set up of A. Lange & Söhne after the fall of the Berlin Wall. On 7 December 1990, imagination, courage, and determination culminated in the establishment of the new Lange manufactory and four years later in the magnificent debut of the first new collection. After the successful start, the company evolved steadily and systematically. But in particular, it was able to preserve the pioneering spirit of the early days and build its future on this momentum.
Elevated to icon status, the LANGE 1 contributed most to the ascent of the Saxon company. And the concurrent launch of the TOURBILLON “Pour le Mérite” with its unique fusée-and-chain transmission definitively positioned A. Lange & Söhne as a top contender in the domain of haute horlogerie. Twenty-five years after it was re-established, A. Lange & Söhne presents itself as a brand that has no intention of resting on its traditions and achievements but instead regards precision watchmaking as a perpetual challenge.
