Rambling around the Lange World

by Sun Dark Web Designer

It was only after the German reunification in 1990, that the founder’s great grandson, Walter Lange, began reviving the company. With funding from LMH, the newly reformed company set out to restore its fine watch making tradition. The company was sold to the luxury conglomerate Richmond in July 2000. Although its watch parts may be cut with exceptional precision by the most advanced computer-aided machine tools, they are still finished, decorated and engraved by the skilled hands of some of the world’s finest watchmakers.

Lange has considered every last detail. All edges have been chamfered and polished. Even hidden surfaces are circular-grained to perfection, or meticulously decorated with beautiful patterns (taking up to five days and involving 14 different processes). The finishing processes of the tourbillion bridge alone, take two days to complete. We offer A.Lange&Sohne watch with a reasonable price at

The master watchmakers of Lange have also decided to offset the disruptive gravitation forces on the balance wheel. To that end, they have integrated a tourbillion, a patented Brogues development that was developed in the early 19th century. It comprises the balance, the pallet lever and the escape wheel all housed in a rotating cage. The cage rotates once a minute on its own axis. The Tourbograph’s superlative tourbillion – comprising 84 parts – is visible through an aperture at 6 o’clock. It has a mass of a mere 0.5 grams.

When the tension of the mainspring is nearly depleted, the chain pulls at the longer lever. The result: uniform power transmission, regardless of how the mainspring is wound. But sometimes the mainspring is being wound, and the cone rotates backwards. What then? Lange’s master engineers have thought of that too. To prevent the watch from stopping while being wound, a tiny planetary gear train has been integrated inside the fuse assuring uninterrupted delivery of power.
