Accolades in Vienna
Glashütte, December 2012
At the "Die Presse" watch gala in Vienna, A. Lange & Söhne received four awards.
The GRAND LANGE 1 won two first prizes in the "Classic Elegance" category at the gala event organised by Austrian daily "Die Presse". In the "Grand Complications" category, the DATOGRAPH UP/DOWN won two second prizes. Lange CEO Wilhelm Schmid and Walter Lange, founder of Lange Uhren GmbH, accepted the prizes in Vienna on 11 December 2012. "With five additional awards, bringing the total to nine in the past 12 months, we can look back on a successful year in timekeeping," Wilhelm Schmid noted. "The prizes encourage us in our determination to never stand still and keep crafting the world's finest watches."
Once a year, the readers of the Austrian daily "Die Presse", of the Watchtime supplement circulated by Süddeutsche Zeitung and of the Chronos watch magazine, as well as visitors of the MunichTime and ViennaTime exhibitions, select the year's best watches. The gala in Vienna ranks among the most prestigious events of its kind in German-speaking Europe. Overall, A. Lange & Söhne has received more than 175 awards since 1994.
