A. Lange & Söhne: yes - you most likely always have a few watches going to investors ...

A. Lange & Söhne: Interview mit ALS CEO - grotesque statements regarding sales of Lange Odysseus

Hi, An interesting interview with Mr. Schmid, CEO of ALS, appeared at .com: most-important-lessons/ His statements regarding the sales of the Odysseus seem almost grotesque. Or - may be - the meaning between the lines are just incredibly impertinent? ALS has noticed that long-time collectors and f

A. Lange & Söhne: Are you sure???

My Lange 1 in yellow gold from 1997 had printed numerals as well and I remember that all Lange 1s in yellow gold with blue hands came with printed numerals.
