A. Lange & Söhne is a German luxury watch brand founded by Ferdinand Adolph Lange in 1845 in Glashütte, Germany. The brand is known for its high-end, complicated mechanical watches with a traditional Saxon design and finish.

A. Lange & Söhne watches feature some of the most intricate and finely crafted movements in the world, with many of their watches featuring complications such as perpetual calendars, tourbillons, and minute repeaters. The brand is also known for its distinctive big date complication, which features two date discs side by side and is a signature of many of their watches.

One of the most iconic A. Lange & Söhne watches is the Lange 1, which was introduced in 1994 and quickly became a classic. The Lange 1 features a distinctive off-center dial design with an oversized date window, and is available in a variety of different metals and complications.

A. Lange & Söhne is known for its commitment to traditional watchmaking techniques and craftsmanship, with many of their movements featuring hand-engraved and decorated parts. The brand produces a relatively small number of watches each year, with each watch taking many months to produce and assemble.

In recent years, A. Lange & Söhne has expanded its product range to include more sporty and casual watches, such as the Odysseus, which features a steel case and integrated bracelet, and the 1815 Sports, which features a chronograph and a tachymeter scale. However, the brand remains best known for its high-end, complicated dress watches.
