A. Lange & Sohne Watches
A. Lange & Shne is a storied watch company experiencing a revival. The brand was born in 1845, when Adolph Lange settled in Glashtte in the Ore Mountains. He helped establish a tradition in Saxony precision watch making, too often obscured by the Swiss.
Watch aficionados "rediscovered" Lange & Shne with the internet buzz about the release of the Datograph in 1996. The company continues to build a fervent following among watch purists, even though "the passion with which Lange's master watchmakers hand-finish even the seemingly slightest detail obviously limits the factory's output."
Lange & Shne has a two year limited warranty.
