  • Artist Biography

    A. Lange & Söhne

    German • 1845

    Originally founded in 1845 by Ferdinand Adolph Lange in Glashütte, Dresden, Germany, the firm established an entire watchmaking culture and industry in Glashütte. The brand quickly became Germany's finest watchmaker, first creating dependable, easy-to-repair watches before going on to produce some of the world's finest complicated pocket watches, including Grande Sonnerie watches, tourbillon watches and Grande Complications.

    On the final day of World War II, their factories were destroyed by Russian bombers, and in 1948 the brand was confiscated by the Soviet Union. Following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1990, Ferdinand's great grandson Walter Lange re-established the brand with the objective to once again produce top-quality luxury watches. Now part of the Richemont Group, its original vintage and modern creations are highly coveted by collectors. Key models from the modern era include the Lange 1, Pour Le Mérite Tourbillon and the Zeitwerk.

Ref. 363.068
Today, sport watches are "de rigueur " amongst the collecting community. While manufacturers such as Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet and Vacheron Constantin had released their own in the 1970s, A. Lange & Söhne have shied away from sports watches. 2019 marked an important milestone for the manufacture when it released its very first sports watch, the Odysseus, to universal acclaim. The present example, cased in White Gold, adds a touch of luxury to the Odysseus range and adds practicality with the option of a rubber strap. Found in excellent overall condition and with both straps, International Guarantee and box, the present Odysseus offers a refreshing high end alternative to the majority of sports watch offerings.
