A. Lange & Sohne Lange 1 Reference 191.032 Watch Service
Germany is well known for some of the world's most notarized watch brands ever manufactured. With brands such as Montblanc, Sinn and NOMOS, Germany does not take a backseat to the powerhouses coming out of Switzerland. One brand, in particular, has separated itself to the top of German luxury timepieces, this brand is A. Lange & Sohne. The company was founded in 1845 by Ferdinand Adolph Lange in Glashutte, Germany. In 1948 operations of the watch brand ceased after World War 2 due to it being nationalized after the occupation of the Soviet Union. It wasn't until 1990 that the company was re-registered by Walter Lange, the grandson of Ferdinand Adolph Lange. The company has since transferred ownership several times and is currently under the Richemont family. The A. Lange & Sohne Lange 1 is one of their most popular models. We here at Gray and Sons will give you an in-depth tour of the servicing of this elegant timepiece.

Top A. Lange & Sohne Watch Repair
During the disassembly, our watchmaker makes any necessary repairs or adjustments to the movement before putting all the components into our ultrasonic cleaner. Once completely torn down to the last screw and bridge, the movement plates and wheels are gently placed into our ultrasonic cleaner. Vibration is then used through rotating fixtures housing the movement components to clean and dissolve old coagulated oil and dirt in three different solutions. This process is essential to return the parts to their original clean state. The movement parts are dried to ensure no residue remains and fresh oil can begin to be applied. Our master watchmaker begins assembly by carefully putting together each component in their appropriate order while checking pivot end shakes as well as tolerance freedom of the wheels and gears for accurate function. During reassembly of this A. Lange & Sohne Lang 1, the watchmaker uses four different synthetic oils to lubricate each point of friction and rotation through the gears and pinions. This process mirrored to the factory specifications to this watch. Movement is then tested for timing accuracy and amplitude on our testing equipment to ensure all proper adjustments were made during the reassembly process. With a freshly clean and regulated movement, it is time to case the movement into its beautifully refinished case where it will again be checked for functionality and display once all put together. The Lange 1 is water tested to its suggested depths to ensure water resistance. Watch will then be put on time and quality controlled over the course of 1-2 weeks to observe its power reserve and automatic system. The timepiece is placed on our 4 RPM watch winders to simulate daily use by a wearer. Once timekeeping is kept during the manufacturer's suggested run time, the watch is released to the client to enjoy as new. Gray and Sons is proud to be your choice for A. Lange & Sohne services and repairs to return your timepiece to its original working condition.
