Adolf Lange designed the three-quarter plate, an element that A. Lange & Söhne continues to use this element in their movements, in 1846, just a year after he set up his workshop. Soon after, Lange made another significant development that has since become an industry standard: he replaced the Parisian system of linges with the metric system.
In 1848, Lange received a unique opportunity: he became the Mayor of Glashütte, and his tenure lasted nearly two decades. During that time, he continued to keep his watchmaking business thriving while implementing legislation to boost the industry at large in the town. The Lange business stayed in the family for years until 1948, when WWII bombs destroyed their workshops, and the Soviet administration nationalized the company’s property. For the next 45 years, the A. Lange and Söhne name disappeared until Walter Lange, Adolf Lange’s great-grandson, returned to Germany, re-registered the trademark, and began producing watches yet again.
In the following decade, A. Lange & Söhne worked tirelessly to restore their brand to its former glory. Since then, the brand has created over 40 new movements and notched over 150 international horological prizes. In 2019, they celebrated the 25th anniversary of their re-establishment with the release of an impressive eight commemorative timepieces. Later that year, they entered a new era for the brand with their first-ever serially produced stainless steel model: Odysseus.
