Just found some time to do a sketch based on the A. lange & Söhne Zeitwerk incorporating the Dresden Opera house clock from which it was inspired and as well a close up of the iconic hand engraved LANGE balance cock. I also think their “State of the Art Tradition” motto rings very true in this piece in particular.
I really admire the skill and craftsmanship A. Lange put into their watches, even if only focusing on the movement itself. It’s as if they approach the design architecturally to be visually satisfying but without being flashy as well as performing its specific duties. And the personalisation of each balance cock is just mouth watering. The watch making artisans at work here are top of their field. Overall, focusing on keeping traditions while pushing the envelope. Well done Lange.
