    A. Lange & Söhne Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase ‘Lumen’ Watch Hands-On Hands-On

    Here’s a question for you: can there be such a thing as a cool Lange? Elegant, sophisticated, restrained, calculated… Yes. But cool? In truth, I wouldn’t have thought so until I went hands-on with the A. Lange & Söhne Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase “Lumen.” First, a bit of a background story to these images: I […]

  • A. Lange & Söhne Little Lange 1 Moon Phase & Saxonia Ladies Watches Hands-On

    A. Lange & Söhne Little Lange 1 Moon Phase & Saxonia Ladies Watches Hands-On Hands-On

    A. Lange & Söhne’s Little Lange 1 Moon Phase embodies what I love about women’s watches right now. It’s a smaller version of a men’s model – and that’s a good thing, since it generally means a great movement, meticulous finish, and a dignified design, particularly since you’re talking about A. Lange & Söhne. When a […]

  • A. Lange & Söhne 1815 ‘Homage To Walter Lange’ Watch

    A. Lange & Söhne 1815 'Homage To Walter Lange' Watch Watch Releases

    SIHH 2017 was a bit of a bittersweet affair for A. Lange & Söhne. While the brand welcomed pieces like the epic Tourbograph Perpetual Pour le Mérite and the sublime 1815 Annual Calendar, they also had to cope with the news of founder Walter Lange’s passing. Walter Lange’s contributions to A. Lange & Söhne cannot […]

    Your average A. Lange & Söhne watch is already chock full of craftsmanship and anything but average. For those who require something even more “special,” however, the brand’s Handwerkskunst watches usually offer some additional artistic decoration for one of the brand’s existing models. The A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Rattrapante Perpetual Calendar Handwerkskunst is one […]

  • A. Lange & Söhne Tourbograph Perpetual ‘Pour Le Mérite’ Watch Hands-On

    A. Lange & Söhne Tourbograph Perpetual ‘Pour Le Mérite’ Watch Hands-On Hands-On

    Some Lange watches put me in actual pain, I want them so much. To make this issue sound more serious than it actually is, I’ll call it Futile Unattainable Watch Acquisition Syndrome (FUWAS, for short). If someone has copyrighted that already, have his lawyer contact mine. Weirdly, the heavyweight horological muscle-flexer A. Lange & Söhne Tourbograph […]

  • Lange 1815 Chronograph introduced with a black dial

    Originally launched in 2004, the 1815 Chronograph is essentially a Datograph without a date. A model refresh in 2010 saw the 1815 Chronograph receive a new silver dial, without a pulsometer scale, with slightly larger sub-dials, and a redesigned movement that incorporated a larger power reserve of 60-hours and the company’s in-house balance spring (as […]
