Lange on the rocks

Lange recently presented some beautiful photos of its watches on minerals extracted from the Ore Mountains of Saxony, now housed at the Technical University of Freiburg. Saxony once had a rich mining industry, which was the basis of the wealth of the Saxon kings. Interestingly, FA Lange established Lange in 1845 because the economy of Glashütte was suffering due to the closure of the nearby silver mines. There’s nothing horologically novel here, but the photos are beautiful, as are the watches. All the 2012 novelties are shown in this series of photos, including the new Datograph Up/Down. – SJX
