Double Split

Founded in 1845, German watchmaking company, A. Lange & Sohne, began a long tradition of creating superior timepieces producing pocket watches and later on, special over-sized wrist watches for use by German airmen in World War II. The brand ceased to exist after World War 2, but following the collapse of the East German government, the founder’s great-grandson, Walter Lange, together with watch industry executive Gnter Blmlein, restored the company and began production in 1994. All Lange watches contain mechanical movement instead of quartz. With a few exceptions, all Lange watch cases are made of gold or platinum. Lange movements are developed, produced, and assembled by the company and its movement design and decoration is distinctively Glashtte in appearance, deviating from features typically found in most Swiss watches.. Lange movements are made from a metal known as “German silver”, an alloy of copper and nickel, as opposed to the plated brass typically used for Swiss movements, giving Lange movements an unusual color and sheen. .

Lange watches tend to have a highly distinctive appearance. For example, the “Lange 1? model features an asymmetric layout with no overlap among its key indicators: a dial displaying the hours and minutes, a smaller subsidiary dial displaying seconds, an oversized double window date display, and a power reserve indicator. Lange’s watches are often described as more “austere” or “Teutonic” in appearance than watches produced by comparable Swiss firms. In addition to time-only watches, both manually-wound and automatic, Lange is known for its complicated watches, including simple and split-seconds chronographs, annual and perpetual calendars, world-timers and tourbillons. Popular offerings include: Lange 1, Richard Lange, and the Grand Lange .
