A. Lange & Söhne "His and Hers" 19th century pocket watches


The origins of the Saxon manufacturer date back to 1845, when Ferdinand A. Lange, an extraordinarily talented Dresden watchmaker, established his own company and started creating superior pocket-watches highly coveted among collectors all over the world. Unfortunately, after the Second World War, the enterprise was expropriated during the Soviet occupation in 1948 and the name of A. Lange & Söhne was almost forgotten. 

Luckily, Ferdinand A. Lange’s great-grandson Walter Lange had the courage to relaunch the brand and in 1990, after the reunification of Germany, founded Lange Uhren GmbH on 7 December 1990 in Glashütte, and registered the A. Lange & Söhne brand worldwide, the first step to bring the Lange watchmaking tradition back to life.
