Lange was founded in 1845 in Dresden. In 1948, the post-war Soviet administration expropriated the company’s property, and the Lange brand ceased to exist. However, in December 1990, following German reunification, the founder’s great-grandson Walter Lange, together with watch industry executive Günter Blümlein, restored the company with the assistance of several Swiss watch manufacturers, including IWC and Jaeger-LeCoultre. The refounded Lange, again operating from Glashütte, presented its first range of wrist watches in 1994. Today, A. Lange & Söhne wrist watches are sold globally and Lange, like IWC, is a member of the Richemont group.
