    • Inside The Manufacture With A. Lange & Söhne


      from HODINKEE Added 20.3K 37 0

      There is something decidedly different about A. Lange & Söhne. You can feel it the first time you step inside any one of Lange's boutiques, or see the backside of a Datograph for the first time. There is quiet excellence everywhere. Each Lange watch is made entirely in-house, and has been for some time. In this original HODINKEE video, we take you inside the Lange manufacture in Glashütte for a look at what make this German brand so special. It should be noted that we were among the very last groups to be allowed to photograph and film inside the Lange manufacture – moving forward photography will be prohibited – which makes this look even more special.

      • The A. Lange & Söhne Grand Complication


        from HODINKEE Added 20.5K 23 0

        When the A. Lange & Söhne Grand Complication was first announced at SIHH 2013 it got the entire watch industry's attention – as you would expect an extremely complex, 50mm diameter, $2.6 million watch to do – though only a handful of people were able to actually see the watch in person. Large scale models and official press photos had to suffice for most. But a few weeks ago a prototype Grand Complication made its way to New York City and we sat down with CEO Wilhelm Schmid and Director of Product Development Anthony de Haas to get a closer look at exactly what this astounding watch means for the future of A. Lange & Söhne. Full story here: http://www.hodinkee.com/blog/in-depth-a-lange-sohne-grand-complication

          from HODINKEE Added 8,669 21 0

          October 3rd, 1990, less than one year after the fall of the Berlin Wall, marked the completion of reunification of Germany. It is one of the most joyous days in German culture, and to us here at HODINKEE and the rest of the watch world, it is a day that set us out to witness some of the most creative, thoughtful, and innovative watchmaking we would see in our lifetime. A. Lange & Söhne has prepared a stirring look at what this day means to them, in advance of the October 24th celebration of twenty years of modern Lange. It should be noted that much of this footage has never been seen before and we at HODINKEE are honored to share it with you.

          • Three On Three: Dress Watches Under $20,000


            from HODINKEE Added 27.7K 13 1

            Welcome to Three On Three. It's one thing for us to give you an in-depth look at a single watch, to wear it and review it, on its own. But there are always options out there. With Three On Three we select a category, choose three watches that represent competitive takes on a theme, and compare them head-to-head. To kick things off, we went with a basic in any man's watch wardrobe, the manually-wound dress watch. Of course we had to get a little more selective, so we've picked three that all feature in-house movements for under $20,000: A. Lange & Söhne's Saxonia in pink gold, F.P. Journe's Chronomètre Bleu, and Vacheron Constantin's Patrimony Traditionnelle Small Seconds in pink gold. All three are seriously impressive entry points into true high-end watchmaking and here Benjamin Clymer, Stephen Pulvirent, and Paul Boutros dissect them side-by-side.
