A. Lange & Sohne has been creating exceptional timepieces since 1845 and is the only non-Swiss watchmaker who commands a position at the pinnacle of watchmaking. The youngest of the “Big Four” has rightfully earned the reputation of “making the impossible, possible” among connoisseurs! A prodigious innovator, A. Lange & Söhne’s timepieces are highly sought-after by aficionados and collectors.
The Big Four are widely recognized as the greatest watchmakers of all time – often referred to as the ‘Four Pillars’ of fine watchmaking!

Not only are they easily ‘portable’ and extremely 'liquid' investments but they almost invariably appreciate in value and are very discreetly 'under-the-radar' as well.
A mere handful of jewelers in the entire world have the privilege of being invited by ALL of the Big Four to showcase their collections under one roof. Jewels by Love has the unique privilege of being honored with this distinction. In addition, they represent such renowned watchmakers as I.W.C., Ulysse Nardin and Jaeger-LeCoultre.
