Lange CEO Wilhelm Schmid is convinced that “cars and watches are far more than the sum of their properties and functions”. “Behind every invention and design are passionate people.” He knows from his own experience that choosing the right car or the perfect watch is a very emotive matter: “The enthusiasm for timeless elegance, sophisticated mechanisms and top-quality craftsmanship links lovers of extraordinary watches with collectors of classic automobiles.” This is why A. Lange & Söhne supports major international events like the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, Classic Days at Dyck Castle and the Concours of Elegance at Hampton Court.

Every car authorised to participate in a concours d’élégance is a formal and technical masterpiece of lasting value. At A. Lange & Söhne, we expect the same from our watches, made predominantly by hand. Whether they are models with basic functionalities or sophisticated complications, there is only one goal for our watchmakers: to continuously push the boundaries of what is mechanically possible without compromising on the design. The result is timepieces whose technical and artisanal quality are as impressive as their clear aesthetic message.
