  • Catalogue Essay

    Fresh, impudent and imaginative, the A. Lange & Söhne Cabaret is a declaration of the Saxon brand’s desire of experimentation and horological excellence. Just three years after the brand’s rebirth in 1994, a bold departure from their round-shaped timepiece was debuted, the Cabaret with a rectangular design sets itself apart from other reputable designs by a proud display of its signature digital outsize date inspired by the Dresden’s Semper Opera House clock.

    Produced as a time-only timepiece, various precious metals and dial combinations, the Cabaret lineage begun at Baselworld in 1997 with the pink gold ref. 107.031 paired with a beautiful two-tone black-silver dial. Inspired by the delightful details of the Roman numerals from Lange 1, and the diamond shaped indexes from the early Saxonia model, the present example of the ref. 105.035 in platinum with a graceful brushed finish dial was launched in 1999. The combination of the dark grey dial framed by the cool of platinum radiates the appeal of the black and white era of the charming Humphrey Bogart with a merit of the modern technical finesse. Inside this gentlemen piece is the calibre L.931.3 beats at 3 Hz and offers a power reserve of 42 hours.

    Offered by the original owner and preserved in an attractive overall condition. The Cabaret is surely a perfect dress watch for the sophisticated connoisseur of haute horlogerie.

  • 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.
