Cars and watches are captivating. Particularly if they rank among the rare ones that people dream about. As technical masterpieces, they embody values that are important to us. Cars stand for freedom, watches for time. They reflect inventiveness, a sense of style, and the quest for records: the most powerful engine, the most precise timekeeping instrument.
Trailblazing innovations made driving safer as well as more energy-efficient and comfortable – and expanded the functionality of watches. In both domains, the search for better solutions and for the ultimate form resulted in ever new milestones in technology and design history. Rare prototypes and one-of-a-kind exemplars are curated in public as well as private collections and showcased on special occasions.
This is the spirit that underlies A. Lange & Söhne’s partnerships with the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este, the Schloss Dyck Classic Days, and the Concours of Elegance Hampton Court Palace. At these high-calibre competitions, devotees of the most noble automobiles ever built meet the collectors and connoisseurs of exclusive timepieces. Those for whom vehicles are sculptures on wheels know that mechanical watches are the matching counterparts for the wrist.
A. Lange & Söhne crafts watches that live up to these lofty ambitions. The name stands for the desire to enrich precision watchmaking with new ideas and continuous refinements – from the design to the meticulous finissage of every part, not to mention the twofold assembly of the complex movements. Everything is aligned with one objective: to redefine the limits of micromechanical engineering and create tomorrow’s classics.
