And since then Lange has reestablished itself as one of the great watchmakers of our garage door remote clone Making fewer than 10,000 pieces a year, it specialises in such horological high-wire acts as the first wristwatch with fusee and chain constant force system: think of tiny derailleur gears, complete with 18cm ‘bike’ chain. It also came up with new complications such as the Lange Double Split, a split-seconds chronograph that splits the minutes as well a truly stunning watch, as gorgeous from the back as it is from the front.
