In the history of fine watchmaking, those stand out who best know how to implement the scientific findings of their time into their own constructions - Richard Lange certainly is one of them. He devoted himself to scientific research on timekeeping components all his life and produced a great number of innovative constructions that were realized in many patents. The RICHARD LANGE watch honours this great horological pioneer and long-time technical director at "A. Lange & Söhne".
The RICHARD LANGE embodies the tradition of A. Lange & Söhne’s scientific observation watches from the 19th and 20th centuries. All facets of this timepiece are dictated by two goals: superior precision and the utmost in legibility. The dial is reduced to three basic elements: hours, minutes and seconds. Readings are accurate to one-sixth of a second. Source: http://www.alange-soehne.com/en/timepieces/richard-lange/#richard-lange/introduction/232-032, as of 09/08/2015.
