We are celebrating F. A. Lange’s 200th birthday.
F. A. Lange devoted his entire life to perfecting the mechanical watch. His outstanding achievements include the introduction of the metric system to precision watchmaking, which led to the development of more accurate measuring instruments. He invented pioneering designs and thus laid the foundation for improved precision in the production of components. Moreover, his courageous decision to establish a watch manufactory in the impoverished Ore Mountains gave the whole region a new perspective.
