For over 150 years, the German watchmaking company of A. Lange & Sohne has kept its place as one of the world’s best high-end watch manufacturers. In a field where the competition is stiff and the task is demanding, this isn’t quite an easy feat and could only be done by keeping the highest quality and standards. What sets this brand apart is its distinctive movement design. Aside from a few models, all Lange watches have mechanical movements. These movements are made from an alloy of copper and nickel known as “German Silver” which gives the movements their unusual color and sheen. Lange watch cases are made of gold or platinum. The timepieces contain distinctive features such as an asymmetric layout without any overlapping among its key indicators. For instance, a dial displays the hours and minutes while a lesser dial displays seconds. Simply yet luxuriously designed, the Lange & Sohne’s high quality watches remain a benchmark for classic watchmaking excellence.
