Lange & Söhne is a luxury watch manufacturer in Glashütte, Germany. Ferdinand Adolph Lange created the first watchmaking jobs in Glashütte with the help of a state loan on 7 December 1845. In 1931, Richard Lange introduced a new alloy for watch springs, Nivarox, which remains popular today. A. Lange & Söhne include a pocket watch commissioned in 1898 by Emperor Wilhelm II for Sultan Abdul Hamid II, the Centennial Tourbillon, created in 1900 by Emil Lange, and No. 42500, “The Grande Complication”, created in 1902 and still the most complicated watch ever produced by the company. During World War II the factory was bombed on May 8, 1945. 145 years to the day after the founding of the original Lange company in Glashütte, the great-grandson of Ferdinand Adolph Lange, Walter Lange, reclaimed the heritage of his family. On December 7, 1990, he founded Lange Uhren GmbH as a successor to, and continuation of, the company. On October 24, 1994, A. Lange & Söhne introduced its first creations: The innovative Lange 1, Arcade, Saxonia and the tourbillon “Pour le Mérite”. In 1997 Lange presented the Langematik, driven by the newly-developed automatic calibre SAX-O-MAT. In 1999 the Datograph was introduced, which unites the flyback function with a big date and a column-wheel.
