One of a triptych of limited pieces that formed the Homage to F. A. Lange series released in 2010 to celebrate 165 years of A. Lange & Söhne, this 1815 Moonphase reference 212.050* has a case crafted from the brand’s proprietary ‘Honeygold’. The dial is decorated with beautiful, radial guilloche mirroring the finishing on the calibre, achieved by both lathe and hand. The watch is one of 265 produced.

The REBIRTH OF A. LANGE & SÖHNE

The name Lange has been tied to watchmaking and the Saxony area of Germany for centuries. In the 1800s, Ferdinand Aldoph Lange – which is where the “A” in A. Lange & Söhne comes from – began his watchmaking journey under the tutelage of master watchmaker, Johann Christian Friedrich Gutkaes. Passed from father to son, the Lange name flourished, before encountering considerable obstacles during 20th century.

In 1990, the brand was resuscitated by Walter, the great-grandson of Ferdinand Adolph Lange, and watch industry veteran Günter Blümlein. A Nuremberg native, Blümlein grew up in post-war Germany, and had previously overseen the resurgence of IWC and Jaeger-LeCoultre. This started the four-year journey that Lange and Blümlein would go on with their small team to bring the company back from the ashes, with the release of their first four models on 25th October 1994.
