A. Lange and Söhne Tourbograph Pour le Merite

        A very interesting success story, A. Lange & Söhne (A Lange & Sons) was created in 1845, in Germany, in a small town in Saxony, by a young entrepreneur, who transformed his family business into one of the most appreciated watch-making powerhouses in the world. After the Second World War, in 1948, the brand’s owners were expropriated by the Soviet administration, and A. Lange & Söhne ceased to exist until 1990 when, with the help of the prestigious Richemont group, the brand started again to produce timepieces extremely appreciated by the watch connoisseurs worldwide.
