The first watch that mesmerizes a young boy is very often father’s watch. In my case this was a pocket watch, but not just any pocket watch but a golden A. Lange and Sons, which the city of Annaberg awarded my great-grandfather as honorary citizen with in the year 1901.
Thus there exist sentimental connections between the Zeitauktion GmbH and the not far away and rich in tradition village Glashütte, where this superfine pocket watch had been made and triggered the foundation of my fascination for watches. But it was not just the watch and its mechanics that enthralled me but also the value and history of such a pocket watch.
After many years this passion for watches initiated in childhood became the Zeitauktion GmbH.
