It doesn’t get any rarer than a unique piece.  This watch is dedicated to Walter Lange who passed away last year.  He relaunched A. Lange & Söhne in 1990 after the wall fell between Eastern and Western Germany to unite the two Germanys.  He returned to Glashütte in December of 1990 and rebuilt the company together with Günter Blümlein, founder of LMH group. Later, A. Lange & Söhne was acquired by Richemont in 2000.
