Philippine Tatler Homes - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
