The ideals and values behind Lange are revealed by its illustrious history, when in 1830, its founding father Adolph Lange began his apprenticeship under the Royal Saxon Court Clockmaker Gutkaes. Several tenets hold true to today and have built Lange's reputation up to what it is today - the respect for tradition, quest for perfection in all aspects of technical and aesthetic creation as well as the binding principle that every new watch should be endowed with at least one useful invention or refinement. Lange continues to fascinate horological aficionados such as our Collector as they stay true to these traditional values whilst staying in tune with contemporary tastes and technological developments. The recently launched award-winning Zeitwerk is a fine example of the Lange genius. In this collection, we have some of the finest Lange timepieces produced this century such as the ingenious Lange 1 Time Zone, Richard Lange observation watch, fly back chronograph Datograph as well as the sleek and compact Cabaret.
