A. Lange & SöhNe
A Passion for Classics
Lange CEO Wilhelm Schmid is convinced that “cars and watches are far more than the sum of their properties and functions”. “Behind every invention and design are passionate people.” He knows from his own experience that choosing the right car or the perfect watch is a very emotive matter: “The enthusiasm for timeless elegance, sophisticated mechanisms and top-quality craftsmanship links lovers of extraordinary watches with collectors of classic automobiles.” This is why A. Lange & Söhne supports the Concours of Elegance at Hampton Court.
Every car authorised to participate in a Concours of Elegance is a formal and technical masterpiece of lasting value. The same is expected from A. Lange & Söhne watches, made predominantly by hand. Whether they are models with basic functionalities or sophisticated complications, there is only one goal for our watchmakers: to continuously push the boundaries of what is mechanically possible without compromising on the design. The result are timepieces whose technical and artisanal quality are as impressive as their clear aesthetic message.
A New Dimension of Timekeeping –
the TrIPLE SPLIT & the 1815 Chronograph
Nearly two decades ago, the DATOGRAPH by A. Lange & Söhne became the symbol of the manufactory’s ambition to continually expand the boundaries of mechanical timekeeping. Due to the unique way in which the watch melds sophisticated technology and eloquent design, its movement is considered to be one of the most beautiful chronograph calibres. Subsequent Lange established a series of further milestones in chronograph design. In January 2018, A. Lange & Söhne presented the TRIPLE SPLIT as the latest momentous addition to its portfolio of high-end chronographs: The first mechanical split-seconds chronograph in the world that allows multi-hour comparative time measurements.
Additionally, two more versions of the 1815 CHRONOGRAPH have been added to the collection this year. Endowed with column-wheel control, a flyback function and a pulsometer scale, the timepieces are available in pink gold with black- or argenté-coloured dials.
