From now until September 24th, visitors at Harrods Fine Watch Room can immerse themselves in a touch of Geneva. Within an atmosphere inspired by the design of A. Lange & Söhne’s stand at this year’s Watches and Wonders event, the esteemed German watchmaker proudly presents an exclusive array of its latest masterful creations. Among these horological treasures stands the remarkable ODYSSEUS CHRONOGRAPH, a testament to the brand’s unwavering pursuit of innovation.
Renowned for venturing into unexplored realms of fine watchmaking, A. Lange & Söhne is forging a unique path in the presentation of its timepieces. Until September 24th, the exquisite atrium of Fine Watches within Harrods will host an exclusive exhibition showcasing the latest additions to the A. Lange & Söhne collection. This presentation echoes the brand’s appearance at Watches and Wonders Geneva 2023.
Commanding attention within the grand gallery-like space, a towering replica of the recently launched ODYSSEUS CHRONOGRAPH leaves an impactful impression. This five-meter-tall hallmark, reminiscent of A. Lange & Söhne’s presence in Geneva offers enthusiasts and connoisseurs an in-depth glimpse into the realm of Lange’s intricate watch mechanics and exceptional craftsmanship. Just like the timepieces on display, this meticulous reproduction reflects the pursuit of perfection and the unparalleled quality synonymous with A. Lange & Söhne.
The ODYSSEUS CHRONOGRAPH marks the latest chapter in the success story of the sporty-elegant watch family, introduced four years ago. Encased in stainless steel, the newly developed L156.1 calibre represents A. Lange & Söhne’s first self-winding chronograph movement. With a central minute counter and dynamic reset-to-zero function, this timepiece elevates the contemporary and distinctive design of the watch family to new technical heights.
Alongside the ODYSSEUS models, the exhibition features previous iterations of the ODYSSEUS watch family, as well as novelties like the new ZEITWERK and the redesigned GRAND LANGE 1, akin to the selection showcased at the Geneva watch exhibition.
Since 2011, A. Lange & Söhne timepieces have been available at Harrods’ Fine Watches department. The recently revamped boutique on the historic department store’s ground floor welcomes watch collectors and enthusiasts to an inviting space radiating refinement. Housing the manufacturer’s six watch families, including the latest releases and exclusive limited boutique editions, the store epitomizes sophistication.
Established by Dresden watchmaker Ferdinand Adolph Lange in 1845, A. Lange & Söhne laid the foundation for Saxony’s precision watchmaking industry. Despite challenges, the brand’s legacy persisted, and in 1990, Walter Lange, Ferdinand Adolph Lange’s great-grandson, revived the brand’s essence. Today, Lange crafts a limited number of meticulously assembled wristwatches each year, boasting proprietary movements. With over 71 manufacturing calibres since 1990, A. Lange & Söhne stands among the world’s finest watch brands, renowned for remarkable creations such as the LANGE 1 and the ZEITWERK.
