Wal­ter Lange, one of the gi­ants of the mod­ern watch in­dus­try, passed away ear­lier this year at the age of 92. He was the great-grand­son of Fer­di­nand Adolph Lange, the founder of A Lange & Söhne, a brand that was ubiq­ui­tous be­fore the com­mu­nist poli­cies of the for­mer East Ger­many led to the dis­so­lu­tion of Glashütte-based watch­mak­ers. Af­ter the fall of the Ber­lin Wall, Wal­ter Lange sin­gle-hand­edly re­vived not only his fam­ily’s brand, now owned by Richemont, but the en­tire Glashütte in­dus­try.
