Richard Lange

    With the Richard Lange, A. Lange & Söhne is reviving the manufactory’s heritage in observation watches, once indispensable navigation aids and precision instruments used for scientific experiments. This elegant three-hand watch with sweep seconds pays tribute to Richard Lange (1845–1932), the eldest son of company founder, Adolph Lange. As one of the most creative minds of the Glashütte, Germany, watchmakers’ dynasty, Richard Lange is the originator of numerous inventions and has contributed decisively to the manufactory’s global reputation. Inside Information: The watch was launched in a ceremony wherein the A. Lange & Söhne–branded zeppelin flew over the rebuilt Church of Our Lady in Dresden, Germany.
