However, in 1989, the Lange family was not only able to bring back the dream of watch making, but enabling others to learn the trade as well in the Glashutte School of watch making. In 1994, hand crafted time pieces were available to public and soon Lange and Sohne gained popularity. With one of a kind time pieces made only in 18-karat gold or platinum, it is important to understand that this German watch company only builds a few thousand a year.
