ZEITWERK (3/6)
The time bridge of the ZEITWERK is the most significant element of the dial. It is made of German silver and frames the hour, minutes and seconds display. The sapphire bearing jewel on the right does not only add an interesting slight touch of asymmetry, but at the same time reveals its function as an essential part of the movement.

ZEITWERK (2/6)
The three numeral discs of the ZEITWERK display the time from left to right. The large hour disc covers the movement’s entire diameter. To realise its jumping numerals, A. Lange & Söhne had to deal with the tremendous forces this kind of mechanism requires and produces. A patented constant-force escapement was integrated to assure the long-term accuracy of the movement.

ZEITWERK (1/6)
To realise the idea of a mechanical watch with a digitally displayed time, A. Lange & Söhne took a completely new approach. On the ZEITWERK model, the time is indicated with the help of three discs. Two of them show the minutes on two separate discs, allowing a larger size and maximum legibility. Their jumping mechanism delivers a precisely readable time, arranged from left to right.

Finishing on the highest level: Tremblage (1/9)
To achieve the effect of a living glossy surface, the engraver sways the burin in eight different directions over the dial.

Finishing on the highest level: Tremblage (8/9)
The dial of the 1815 TOURBILLON HANDWERKSKUNST is made of black-rhodiumed pink gold and decorated with a lavish tremblage engraving.

Finishing on the highest level: Tremblage (7/9)
Almost all HANDWERKSKUNST models presented so far feature tremblage engraving. The engraver who masters this elaborate finishing technique sculpts the material with a specially crafted lining burin to achieve a uniform, finely granular structure.

Finishing on the highest level: Black polishing (6/9)
Only very few and select parts are decorated with the intricate black polishing technique, among them is the tourbillon bridge of the TOURBOGRAPH “Pour le Mérite”.

Finishing on the highest level: Black polishing (4/9)
Using special abrasive pastes, the respective parts are manually polished on a zinc or tin plate until they appear to be black at a certain angle of incident light.

Finishing on the highest level: Ribbing (3/9)
Decorated with Glashütte ribbing, the three-quarter plate sets a perfect stage for the thermally blued screws that secure the gold chatons in which the ruby-red bearing jewels are embedded.

Finishing on the highest level: Ribbing (2/9)
The stripes of the ribbing pattern are produced by a slightly inclined, rotating grinding wheel that is guided along the component in straight, parallel lines.

Finishing on the highest level: Ribbing (1/9)
The uniform stripes of the ribbing pattern decorate the three-quarter plates of most A. Lange & Söhne calibres. It is also called Glashütte ribbing.

TRIPLE SPLIT: The ultimate chronograph (1/3)
The TRIPLE SPLIT is the only split-seconds chronograph in the world that can measure additive and comparative time for as long as twelve hours. It has broken the A. Lange & Söhne record of the DOUBLE SPLIT which, in 2004, allowed the first comparative measurements with an aggregate duration of 30 minutes and, since then, has defended its unique position. With a precisely jumping rattrapante minute counter and a continuous rattrapante hour counter, the TRIPLE SPLIT multiplies this measuring range of the rattrapante function by a factor of 24.

TRIPLE SPLIT: The ultimate chronograph (2/3)
The TRIPLE SPLIT – which comes in a limited edition of 100 pieces – is endowed with a flyback function that involves all three hand pairs. The chronograph can be reset and instantly restarted by pressing the lower chronograph button even during an ongoing measurement.

TRIPLE SPLIT: The ultimate chronograph (3/3)
To realise the TRIPLE SPLIT, a completely new movement was needed. The result: the manufacture calibre L132.1 which contains up to twelve different levels. Despite the extended functionality, the engineers succeeded in integrating the additional components in the movement so ingeniously that the case did not have to be enlarged compared to the case of the DOUBLE SPLIT.

Homage to Walter Lange (1/3)
In loving memory of our company founder Walter Lange who passed away on 17th January 2017.

Homage to Walter Lange (2/3)
Walter Lange adhered to tradition but also embraced progress. His words “Never stand still” serve as a motto and still shape the culture of A. Lange & Söhne today.

Homage to Walter Lange (3/3)
In 1994, Walter Lange exceeded all expectations with the first four timepieces of the new A. Lange & Söhne era. The art of fine watchmaking had come home to Glashütte once more. The small pioneering team has now grown to 770 employees, and the first collection with only four watches has blossomed into five clearly distinguishable model families. This impressive development would not have been possible without the pioneering achievements of Walter Lange.

SIHH Debuts: TRIPLE SPLIT (1/24)
With blued-steel rattrapante hands on the minutes and hours totalisators, the TRIPLE SPLIT is the first chronograph ever which allows measuring time intervals of up to twelve hours. A look at the caseback reveals the painstakingly choreographed interaction of wheels, levers, springs, clutches and jumpers, illustrating the immense complexity of the movement.

SIHH Debuts: TRIPLE SPLIT (2/24)
To implement the rattrapante function over the whole range of twelve hours, A. Lange & Söhne had to develop the most complex chronograph movement ever. The result is a chronographic world premiere.

SIHH Debuts: TRIPLE SPLIT (3/24)
It is just a third blued-steel hand on the solid-silver dial – but it represents a breath-taking world premiere which makes the TRIPLE SPLIT absolutely unique: It is the only mechanical split-second chronograph in the world with a rattrapante function able to measure and compare time intervals of up to twelve hours. The TRIPLE SPLIT will be limited to 100 pieces.
