The brand's VDO group, persuaded by successors Walter A. Lange & Söhne, has reinvented the historic A. Lange & Söhne brand with its own technological know-how. At the beginning of its creation, the brand positioning was placed on the highest end Whether it is carved three-quarter plywood, gold sleeve or a large calendar are to highlight its style with Patek Philippe, but not in technology and workmanship is not lost to Patek Philippe.


Inspired by the rapid maturity of A. Lange & Söhne in the near term, Glashütte, a watchmaking city near Dresden, was also launched quickly and became a Swatch Group against A.
