Obituary Walter Lange

Walter Lange (1924–2017)

Glashütte, 17 January 2017

Not very many people take it upon themselves to found a company at an age when most people are retiring. But there was no hesitation when, in 1990, Walter Lange had the opportunity to revitalise the factory of his forefathers, whose operations were interrupted by the Cold War and the division of Germany into East and West. He was 66 years old at the time. The reunification of Germany opened a historical window of opportunity for the great-grandson of Ferdinand Adolph Lange, founder of the Saxony-based maker of fine watches. After a 40-year-long involuntary hiatus, Walter Lange managed to breathe new life into the legend of the historical brand and to successfully take on the powerful competition from Swiss watchmakers. The clever idea of bringing Germany’s most famous watch brand back to life was so powerful that it made its way to reality.

With a small, committed team of ingenious engineers and watchmakers, he and his partner Günter Blümlein were able to find ...

Bring on the Complications: the New Robert Mühle Zeigerdatum

Glashütte, September 2016

Mühle-Glashütte is now honouring the life and work of its founder with its new Robert Mühle special edition, which also breathes fresh life into a classic complication that is now a rare treasure: the date hand. As you would expect from a timepiece made in a genuine manufacturing workshop, the mechanism was personally designed by Mühle-Glashütte's expert watchmakers themselves. This exclusive characteristic is even more enhanced by the fact that this special edition watch is limited to a total of just 100 pieces.

After founding his family company in 1869, Robert Mühle played a significant role in establishing the excellent reputation of the German town of Glashütte as a top watchmaking location thanks to his high-precision measuring instruments. This year, he would have celebrated his 175th birthday. This is reason enough for Mühle-Glashütte to celebrate its namesake by launching a traditionally manufactured classic timepiece that reflects the values practised by Robert Mühle in the most stunning way possible. The new Robert Mühle Zeigerdatum ...

Moon over Saxony

SAXONIA MOON PHASE in front of the famous Rakotz Bridge in Kromlau, Saxony, in the full-moon night on 20 June

The new SAXONIA MOON PHASE is the star of a global photography project

Glashütte, July 2016

Unveiled at the SIHH in January, the SAXONIA MOON PHASE is now becoming available at points of sale. It pairs an accurate moon-phase display with the striking Lange outsize date. A photo shoot against a Saxon backdrop in the moonlight aptly expresses the perfect combination of precision and aesthetics. The portrayal kicks off an international online event.

Astronomy, photography, and space travel are the three key disciplines that have given us close-up encounters with the moon. But, despite the latest insights, it has lost none of its allegorical fascination. After all, the magical appeal ...

Senator Excellence: 24 Days on the Test Bench

Senator Excellence:A rotating test device is used to simulate the conditions under which the watch is worn on the wrist and to test it in different positions.

Manufactory Calibre 36 promises new standard of quality

Glashütte, June 2016

At the heart of the Senator Excellence the manufactory Calibre 36 introduces a new generation of timepieces, and with it the Glashütte Original manufactory defines an innovative new standard of quality. Every single one of these watches bears a special engraving on the case back, which must be understood as a promise. Together with an individual examination certificate, the engraving guarantees the owner that the watch meets the highest standards in terms of stability, running time, precision and aesthetics, and that it has been thoroughly examined over the course of a long-term test lasting 24 days – under conditions even more demanding than those in force for the standard German chronometer tests.

WUSSTEN SIE SCHON?
Dass Email zwar eine heute oft vorkommende, aber falsche Schreibweise für E-Mail (elektronische Post) ist, in Wirklichkeit aber auf das Verfahren der Emaillierung verweist? Hierbei handelt es sich um eine seit 1635 gepflegte, von Gerd-Rüdiger Lang (Chronoswiss) beim Modell Chronoswiss Orea wiederbelebte aufwendige Technik der Zifferblattbeschichtung. Dabei wird durch Brennen im Brennofen bei sehr hoher Hitze eine hellweiße Glasur erzeugt, die zu einem besonders hell leuchtenden Ziffernblatt aus ebendiesem "Email" führt.
