Since the 1970s and 1980s, radar watches have been innovating and researching more suitable materials for watches. This time, they set their sights on high-tech ceramics that were only used in aerospace technology and high-end medical equipment at the time, because this material has the advantages of lightness, non-wear, high temperature resistance, and low skin allergy. On the watch
In 1982, the Integral series was born. The signature design of the series ‘Merge Watch and Bracelet’, the high-tech ceramic strap embedded in the I-shaped steel bracelet link, gives this watch an unparalleled elegance and the flexibility and flexibility that it feels when worn. Comfort.

瑞士 Switzerland, 1962. The watches of Ganges sand number flow from the manufacturer’s workshop here to the world as usual, as in the past hundreds of years. Except for RADO, which has just been born for five years, no one may think that an oval watch called ‘DiaStar’ is about to create a new watchmaking history. At that time, Mr. Marc Lederrey, the designer of the Swiss radar watch, found that gold and steel watches were very beautiful when they were brand new, but after a few days of wearing, they will be scratched and need to be constantly re-polished. At the time, hard metal alloys composed of tungsten, titanium, and carbides were only used to make tools and used in high-tech fields due to their unique anti-wear physical properties. Mr. Lederrey suggested: ‘We can use this metal to make watches.’ Mr. Paul Lüthi, then Swiss radar watch leader, used a short sentence: ‘Go ahead!’ As a result, the world’s first hard-wearing watch was born. This is the Original DiaStar, a founding ‘diamond star’ watch that combines high-tech hard metal alloys with classic design. Subsequently, the new material concept of ‘not easy to wear’ swept the world. With its unique and forward thinking, the young RADO radar watch brand has become an upstart in the watch industry with its innovative ideas of half material and half design.

Not long ago, on August 26th, the new watch factory of top watch brand A. Lange & Söhne was officially opened in the small town of Glashütte, Saxony, eastern Germany. Prime Minister Merck Unveiled the new plant. As a watch brand and a top watchmaking brand, it stands to reason that it has nothing to do with the lives of ordinary people. A country’s prime minister actually goes to their watch factory to cut the ribbon? On what grounds?
History of Lange
View of the small town of Glashütte in the Ores in 1855
The German watch brand Lange, from the small town of Glashütte in Saxony in eastern Germany, reviews its watchmaking history and can be divided into two sections. Since the founder Mr. Ferdinando Adolf Lange established the watch factory in 1845 in Glashütte and integrated his extensive study experience in the Gutkes Studios and Europe into the operation of the Lange watch factory, Bring great changes to the watchmaking world at the time. At the same time, it also affected the entire Glashütte area at that time, and the watchmaking town was born. The formation of the watch industry chain also solved the local people’s livelihood and employment problems.
Lange’s pocket watch
Lange’s pocket watches have been one of the most enviable timers for hundreds of years. Their unique classic elements, blue steel screws and screw-fixed gold sleeves, especially the iconic 3/4 plywood, increase the volume of 3/4. The splint can accommodate the various mandrels of the gear train, making each connected gear more stable.

In 1945, the artillery of World War II ruthlessly destroyed Lange’s watchmaking workshop. After the war, the century-old foundation of Lange encountered the forfeiture and confiscation of the East German regime. It was not until the fall of the East and West Berlin Wall in 1989 that it truly ushered in a revival and was reappeared. Inherits the legendary elements of Lange pocket watches, German silver 3/4 splint, screw-fastened gold sleeve, and hand-carved balance wheel splint with gooseneck spinner, Ferdinando Adolf Lange’s great-grandson Val In the name of Lange, Mr. T. Lange once again started making the best watches in the world. After the merger of East and West, the revitalized watchmaking town in eastern Germany revived, not only driving the entire town’s economic development, but also bringing hope to the town’s people.
Special new factory
Lange’s new factory in Glashütte
With the continuous development of the brand, as a Lange with more than 670 employees, its plant can no longer meet the realization of a new future vision. As a result, the brand decided to centralize the assembly of all watch movements and the production of precision components in a new, dual-connected factory building. By centralizing all major production processes to improve overall efficiency, the main purpose is to improve the working environment rather than increase production .
Due to the main distribution of gneiss in the area, it has the characteristics of high quartz content, high density and good thermal conductivity, which is very suitable for geothermal mining. For this reason, Lange decided to use this environmentally friendly technology to build a modern, energy efficient and beautiful environment through geothermal power. The groundbreaking ceremony was held on September 5, 2012.
Watchmaking studio in Lange’s new building
This project with an investment of tens of millions of euros was finally completed this year after three years of construction. The brand new building has an additional 5,400 square meters of usable area and consists of two parts. The movement manufacturing equipment is located in front of the lower floor of the building, separated from several hand-carving and finishing departments. The building is fitted with large, large, tilted glass to ensure sufficient light. The watchmaking workshop has a very modern design, allowing watchmakers to work in an almost dust-free environment. The building’s double-deck curtains are also equipped with a temperature adjustment function.
Warm with geothermal in winter and cool with geothermal in summer
In Saxony, the geotechnical installation with the highest technical performance, in summer, the operating principle of the entire system is completely opposite. The air-conditioning plant can directly dissipate heat through the probe, thereby cooling the building. This raises the average temperature of the groundwater, and the rocks store this thermal energy for use next winter. The heating and cooling capacity of this device is 892 kW and 500 kW, respectively.

The completion of the new factory is undoubtedly a milestone in Lange’s history, providing employees with the ideal working environment and centralizing all major production processes to improve overall efficiency and improve the production process, not to increase production but to further Improving the quality of products, defending Lange’s reputation as the world’s top watch brand, and also injecting development and vitality into watchmaking towns. Advancing with the times, using geothermal heating and ecological power to provide energy for new buildings has made a significant contribution to protecting the local climate, setting a good example for brand companies to reduce their ecological footprint and resource consumption. It is no wonder that German Chancellor Angela Merkel will participate in the unveiling of Lange’s new factory on August 26.
