Glashütte Original - Preview Baselworld 2014: PanoMaticInverse

Glashütte Original - PanoMaticInverse.

Introduced to great success in 2008, the PanoInverse XL was the first of the Saxon watchmaker’s timepieces to reveal its inner beauty, presenting this very special form of fine adjustment on the face of the watch. This was made possible by the inverse positioning of the components that are normally visible through the case back’s sapphire crystal. To achieve this it was necessary to refine many of the movement components and to further develop individual components and sub-groups, which led to a completely new design of the manual winding Calibre 66.

The PanoMaticInverse, which celebrates its debut at Baselworld 2014, takes this idea further and is presented here with the new Calibre 91-02, a precise automatic movement with a ...

A. Lange & Söhne lays cornerstone for manufactory extension

Cornerstone laying ceremony at A. Lange & Söhne: Walter Lange with the engraved time capsule.

Glashütte, September 2013

Ergonomically optimised working conditions, streamlined processes and a balanced ecological footprint are just some of the advantages of Lange Uhren GmbH’s new manufactory extension. During a reception at the construction site, Lange CEO Wilhelm Schmid and company founder Walter Lange laid the cornerstone for the new five-storey building.

The A. Lange & Söhne construction site in Glashütte is abuzz with activity. The structural framework of the manufactory extension is gradually taking shape. Having completed the basement level and base plate, Dresden-based building contractor WOLFF & MÜLLER is already erecting the first walls for the entrance area on the ground level. This is where Lange CEO Wilhelm Schmid and Walter Lange set the cornerstone with a time capsule. It contains a newspaper, the current A. Lange & Söhne catalogue, the latest edition of ...

Dresden rediscovers time

Mathematics and Physics Salon Dresden

Dresden / Glashütte, April 2013

The Mathematics and Physics Salon in the Dresden Zwinger was closed for six years due to comprehensive renovations. A. Lange & Söhne has supported the refurbishment of the museum. Last Sunday, it reopened its doors to the public and now demonstrates the persuasiveness and splendour of knowledge even more impressively than before.^

“One of the cores of Saxony's history” is how Hartwig Fischer, Director of the Dresden State Art Collections, refers to the Mathematics and Physics Salon which reopened on 14th April 2013. Endowed with twice as much space as before, the eminent scientific history collection presents more than 400 exhibits, including clocks and watches, automata, telescopes, and globes. With its observatory and timekeeping service, it became the highest authority for all time-related matters in the late 18th century and is deemed the cradle of precision watchmaking in Dresden.

The Salon has always been of special significance for the venerable watch brand. Here, about 180 years ago, the young Ferdinand A. Lange discovered his passion for ...

Board of Longitude


Die Gründung des Königlichen Observatoriums in Greenwich durch Charles II. im Jahre 1675 war Englands erster Schritt auf der Suche nach genauen Längenangaben. 1714 lobte Englands Parlament für eine praktisch brauchbare Lösung des Längenproblems bis zu 20.000 Pfund aus, je nach Genauigkeit der gefundenen Methode.

Zur Verwaltung des Preisgeldes und zur Beurteilung eingereichter Vorschläge wurde die „Längenkommission“ Board of Longitude gegründet, der die damals bedeutendsten Astronomen und Mathematiker Englands angehörten, aber auch der Präsident der Royal Society, der Königlichen ...
