The Lange & Son company was founded in the middle of the 19th century and revived in 1990. Five hundred employees make only 5,000 watches a year. The average price is 20,000 euros. After manual fine-tuning, fitting of parts and assembly, the watch is carefully adjusted (leading or lagging - maximum 6 s per day), then … partially disassembled again to replace the small screws, which have traces of screwdrivers.

In autumn, the masters of Lange and Son finished a batch of watches for 380,000 euros. It's good that BMW is not assembled by hand …
