A. Lange & Sohne - Great Timepieces from Saxony
Hardcover - English

'Future needs heritage' - these were the words with which German philosopher Odo Marquard summarised his insight that the new world cannot exist without the legacy of the old one. The same words aptly describe the quintessence of Reinhard Meis' work devoted to A. Lange & Sohne, probably Germany's most famous watch brand. With his profoundly detailed knowledge, the author builds a bridge from the grand heritage of the brand in the 19th century to its current eminence at the pinnacle of international precision watchmaking. Reinhard Meis invested eight years to thoroughly revise his standard work dedicated to the horological legend from Dresden. In a fourth, significantly expanded edition, it is now being presented by the Munich-based Callwey publishing house as a two-volume treatise entitled 'A. Lange & Sohne - Great Timepieces from Saxony'. Meis' book describes the complete history of the Lange watchmaking dynasty from Dresden and its timepieces, from the early beginnings in the 19th century to the present.
