There’s hardly any brand that makes better prestige watches than A Lange & Söhne. A collector’s dream and a horological muse, pieces by the high-quality watch maker have been an epitome of luxury since over two decades. Recently, the watch manufacturer tied up with the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden (also known as The Dresden State Art Collections) for an art-exclusive photo shoot. The resultant exhibits are a delight to watch for both heritage and watch lovers.
As part of the project, A Lange & Söhne models are paired alongside artifacts from Italy, Russia, India, China, Japan and Brazil. The watches and each of the masterpieces make way for an exciting dialogue that is appealing both for the lenses as well as for the mind. As part of the exhibit, the Lange 1 Moon Phase in white gold is covered alongside a plate with semi-precious stone inlays from India whereas the Little Lange 1 Moon phase is paired along with the Baniwa feather diadem from Brazil. For one of the photo exhibits, the Lange 1 Moon Phase in all black is also matched alongside the Katagami pattern (that is used for producing kimono fabrics from Japan) in the background. Furthermore, the exquisite Saxonia with a mother of pearl dial is seen with the shallow nacre bowl from India and the Saxonia Moon Phase is combined with an awe-inspring dragon motif from China.
Each of the artifacts come from a different origin and together with the A Lange & Söhne models, they tell a story of a million’s worth. Out of the 15 museums under The Dresden State Art Collections, the photographed exhibits will belong to the revered Green Vault, the Kunstgewerbemuseum and the Dresden Museum of Ethnology.
