On March 9, the Dresden State Art Collections (Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, SKD) held an annual press conference in Dresden. At the meeting, Hartwig Fischer, the curator of the collections, and Wilhelm Schmid, the president of Lange, announced that they will continue their cooperation relationship for five years. Lange is a long-established watch brand, and the Dresden State Art Collection is a world-renowned museum. The partnership between the two began in 2006. Last year, they jointly held the ‘Immaculateness-Road to the Saxony Precision Watchmaking Center’. ‘The special exhibition commemorates the 200th anniversary of Ferdinand Adolph Lange’s birthday and has become the focus of the moment.
The Dresden State Art Collection has 14 museums, including the Grünes Gewölbe, Galerie Alte & Neue Meister, the Porcelain Collection (Porzellansammlung), and the Mathematical Physics Salon ( Mathematisch-Physikalische Salon), are the world’s premier museums. Lange’s relationship with the salon of mathematical physics is deep, dating back to the early days of the rise of precision watchmaking. In 1830, the young Ferdinando Adolf Lange in the salon came into contact with many watches made in the region and in other parts of Europe, began to be fascinated by watchmaking, and determined to create the world’s top in Saxony works.
However, Lange’s support for the Dresden State Art Collection is not just about drinking water. For Lange President Wilhelm Schmid, what is more important is that the partnership can benefit each other today: ‘Saxony has been known for its cultural diversity for many centuries, and Lange hopes to join forces with Dresden The state art collection revitalizes this fine tradition. Lange is the representative of Saxony’s precision watchmaking industry, and has a reputation in more than 60 countries around the world. International vision and cultural integration can be said to be the core value of the brand. Therefore, I can continue this partnership. Very happy. ‘
