The allure of the watch is all in the message. Closed it says "Love," followed by "You" when the watch is opened. The cursive script of the two worlds meld together nicely. The best part is that each time she need to check the time, she reads the message, "Love You." Nothing expresses that statement better. For those who can afford it, this is a pretty darn perfect Valentines Day gift. Well over ,000.
The Green Vault is located near the clock tower that has a lot of historical significance for A. Lange and Sohne because the original founder apprenticed here under master watch maker Friedrich Gutkaes, and began his idea for a manufacture. A short distance away is the famous "five minute clock" located in the Semper Opera House that is also tied to A. Lange & Sohne's history having been created in Gutkaes' manufactury in 1841 . These locations are in Dresden, but that is not where A. Lange & Sohne began. Lange wanted to enter a new region as Dresden was crowded with watch makers at the time. Eyes were set about 45 minutes south to Glashutte near the Ore Mountains. It was a poor region at the time. There, Lange saw potential in the people as watch makers due to their focus on crafts and weaving. Attention to tiny detail can easily be transferred to other skills with good direction. Today Glashutte is a different place than it was then, completely transformed by these actions in the 19th century. What is so amazing to me is that after all those years, and considering all the other things that have changed, the core elements of watches and clocks remain the same. It is that type of tradition that A. Lange & Sohne refers to when using the term "tradition."
