Gutkaes & Lange Dresden , Case No. 3346, 47 mm, 91 g, circa 1865

A gentleman's important Glashuette pocket watch with 24 hour indicator, from the beginning of the Lange watch production. It is the first of only nine Lange watches in total with 24 hour dial

This watch shows that Lange began looking for overseas sales opportunities at an early stage. Fernando Ganter was a German emigrant from Lenzkirch and ran a successful jewellery store in Madrid with at least one branch in London. We know of another watch by Julius Assmann that also bears the sales mark of Fernando Ganter.
