This year saw the pass­ing of two great le­gends in the watch­mak­ing in­dus­try. Wal­ter Lange, founder of the Saxon lux­ury watch brand A. Lange & Söhne, passed away on Jan­uary 17 at the age of 92. Wal­ter has left an in­deli­ble mark in the in­dus­try with cre­ations like the Lange 1, which rev­o­lu­tion­ized the watch in­dus­try with its de­cen­tral­ized dial. The brand stated: “Thanks to his courage, his vi­sion, his crit­i­cal spirit and his sin­cere in­ter­est in the peo­ple around him, he was not only a sym­bol of con­ti­nu­ity, but also a fa­ther fig­ure with whom peo­ple could iden­tify.” Roger Dubuis, who cre­ated his epony­mous watch brand in 1995, also passed away this year on Oc­to­ber 14 at the age of 79. An of­fi­cial state­ment re­leased by the Richemont Group cred­ited “his renowned ex­per­tise in Haute Hor­logerie, his dis­rup­tive vi­sion, his hu­man val­ues.”
