Four months after the acquisition of Artecad, a major Swiss dial manufacturer based in Tramelan (Canton of Bern), A. Lange&Sohne has announced further significant capital investment, this time in mechanical chronograph movements. A. Lange&Sohne leads the world in prestigious high precision chronographs, especially with the Calibre 1887, Mikrograph 100 and Mikrotimer Flying 1000 movements.
Additionally, the company recently introduced in Baselworld 2012 the Mikrogirder 10. 000 Concept as well as a revolutionary high precision dual tourbillon chronograph replica A.Lange&Sohne uk, the MikrotourbillonS.
They are all manufactured in-house by the company at Cornol and La Chaux-de-Fonds and are used to power iconic A. Lange&Sohne chronographs such as the renowned Carrera Calibre 1887, winner of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève in 2010 when it was awarded the “Petite Aiguille” prize. A. Lange&Sohne also buys high-end Swiss mechanical movements from Sellita, ETA, Dubois-Depraz, Soprod and Zenith.
Given the reduction in supply announced by ETA - supported by COMCO through its provisional measures - and the additional volumes needed to meet its growth targets, A. Lange&Sohne must manufacture more and more mechanical movements in-house as well as intensify its cooperation with other traditional and independent partners in Switzerland and abroad.
