Founded in 1845 by Dresden-based watchmaker Ferdinand Adolph Lange and revived by his great-grandson Walter Lange after World War II in 1990, A. Lange & Söhne today ranks among the best luxury watchmakers worldwide. The Saxon brand offers high-end quality watches made of gold or platinum and furnished with precise and delicate clockworks made entirely by hand.
In order to celebrate the launch of their three luminous watch models Grand Lange 1 ‘Lumen’, Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase ‘Lumen’ and the Zeitwerk ‘Luminous’, A. Lange & Söhne undertook an adventurous journey through Iceland, that Nordic fairy land known for its spectacular nature and breathtaking auroras. An appropriate setting to shoot and test the limited edition watches indeed, once you’ve cast a glance at the models.
Pitch-black clock-faces, just like the black lava beaches, meet hands and appliqués made of rhodium-plated gold and green shimmering displays, instantly reminding one of Northern Lights. Semi-transparent, black-tinted sapphire-crystal glass dials allow the numerals to charge with light energy, and thus glow in the dark for several hours. With their noble design and elaborate mechanics the luminous models by A. Lange & Söhne seem like the perfect companions for any occasion, whether it be under the Arctic night sky or simply with pitfalls of your everyday life.
