Just back from a wonderful 3 day visit to Germany incorporating a visit to the A. Lange & Söhne factory. A truly amazing experience.
Robert Hoffmann (head of Zeitwerk production) was our guide and we were lucky enough to be shown inside a number of departments including the finishing of parts, engraving of balance cocks, Chronographs (including seeing a Triple Split movement during assembly) and Zeitwerk. Everything was then finished off with an introduction to the entire current collection and a lovely lunch at which we were joined by Anthony de Haas and Tino Bobe.
The biggest thing I will take from the trip isn’t the extreme attention to detail and workmanship (which is of course evident everywhere) but is actually the enthusiasm and pride of everyone we met - there was a real tangible excitement to share their love for the brand.
A truly memorable trip and my thanks to everyone at A. Lange & Söhne for organising.
