Ferdinand Adolph Lange founded his manufactory in Glashütte, Germany (near Dresden) by the end of 1845. With the help of State grants he was able to employ 15 apprentices who learned the craft of watchmakers.
Even though it was hard to grow and become competitive among the swiss competitors, 30 years later he already had 70 employees working in his watchmaking.
Langes oldest sons Richard and Emil entered the paternal company in 1868 and helped making "A. Lange & Söhne" internationally known in the sector of high-quality watches. This company existed until 1948 when it was expropriated by the Soviet occupation.
