  • Catalogue Essay

    Since the launch of A. Lange & Söhne's Lange 1 in 1994, the model has seen variations to the dial, bezel and bracelet. The present watch, Lange 1 Soirée, incorporates all the iconic elements of the Lange 1 model such as the patented outsized date, power reserve indication and the exclusive caliber 901.4. The Lange 1 Soirée features an additional mother-of-pearl guilloché dial, designed like sun rays, which seem to emanate from the dial center.

  • 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.
