  • Catalogue Essay

    The 20th Anniversary set was released in 2014 as a celebration of this iconic watch. A. Lange & Söhne produced five sets of 20 timepieces each, which included different case metals and dial type combinations. The present set in white gold with blue dial is fresh to the market and from the owner. It is one of the first times these extraordinarily rare complete sets have been offered. The watches are in immaculate condition with the lady’s watch worn only once during a A. Lange & Söhne dinner, while the gentleman’s watch has been worn a handful of times but is in excellent overall condition. The Lange 1 is one of the most iconic watches of the late 20th century, and this set is the perfect opportunity for collectors to own a very rare part of the A. Lange & Söhne history.

  • 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.
