A. Lange & Söhne: 1815

In Socrates' day, an inscription on the fronton of the Temple of Apollo in Delphi read μηδὲν ἄγαν (mêdén ágan) or "nothing in excess".

A belief shared by Ferdinand A. Lange, founder of the eponymous brand whose year of birth is also the name of this collection. The watchmaker from Glashütte embraces this principle in the new 1815, a reminder that the measurement of time has one of its most beautiful expressions in an authentically classic watch.
