    Nomos Glashütte

    Nomos Glashütte is a German luxury watch-making company that was founded in 1991 in Glashütte, Saxony by Roland Schwertner.

    The name includes Glashütte to distinguish it from a different "Nomos" watch-making company called Nomos-Uhr-Gesellschaft, Guido Müller & Co. (Nomos Watch Company), which imported Swiss watches and sold them under the prestigious label Glashütte / Sachsen. This firm was sued by A. Lange & Söhne, leading to the end of the company in 1910.

    The new Nomos has focused on manufacturing mechanical watches with hand-wound movements. The basis for the movement was, until 2005, the Swiss-made ETA SA / Peseux 7001. These watches bear the label "Glashütte / SA" and "Made in Germany", and have gilded movements.

    Since April 2005 Nomos has only used in-house movements called "Alpha" (standard manual movement), "Beta" (with date display), and "Delta" (with date and power reserve display). These new movements are labelled "Glashütte" and "Germany" (or "Made in Germany" for more recent watches) and are nickel plated with Geneva stripes. In the summer of 2006 the "Tangomat" was introduced. This watch includes the movement "Epsilon" (automatic) or "Zeta" (automatic with date display).

  • A. Lange & Söhne
    [ source: Wikipedia ]

    A. Lange & Söhne

    A. Lange & Söhne is a trademark of German watchmaking company Lange Uhren GmbH ("Lange"), a subsidiary of Richemont SA.

    History

    Lange was founded in 1845 by Ferdinand Adolph Lange in the town of Glashütte, near Dresden, in the eastern state of Saxony. Under Ferdinand, and then, following his death, his sons Emil and Richard, Lange produced quality pocket watches, the company's very best products generally being given the "1A" designation. Under subsequent generations of the Lange family the company continued to produce pocket watches and, like many German watch makers, produced special over-sized wrist watches for use by German airmen in World War II.

    In 1948, the post-war Soviet administration expropriated the company's property, and the Lange brand ceased to exist. However, in 1990, following the collapse of the East German government, the founder's great-grandson, Walter Lange, together with watch industry executive Günter Blümlein, restored the company with the assistance of several Swiss watch manufacturers, including IWC and Jaeger Le Coultre. The refounded Lange, again operating from Glashütte, presented its first range of wrist watches in 1994. Today, A. Lange & Söhne (litt. A. Lange & Sons) wrist watches are sold globally and Lange, like IWC, is a member of the Richemont group.
