Are you thinking ” Pawn my A. Lange & Söhne watch?”

If you’re wondering ‘how can I take a loan against my A. Lange & Söhne watch?’, then here at New Bond Street Pawnbrokers, we can help. With our expert knowledge, we can offer financing on A. Lange & Söhne watches at our pawn shop in London, and help you release your capital fast, with no credit checks.

A. Lange & Söhne has a rich and deep heritage with the luxury watchmaker’s origins stretching back to 1845 in Saxony, Germany. Their reputation grew among the wealthy upper echelons and, in the second world war, were even commissioned to manufacture oversized wristwatches for the German airmen. However, defeat in 1945 led to the invading Soviets nationalizing the successful watchmaker. Following the reunification of Germany in 1990, the watchmaker was restored to its original quality.

The company’s unique design, coupled with its enduring history, has built a distinctive name. These watches are designed in the unique Glashütte exterior design, which boasts a unique take on the Swiss-style. Typically, most watches use quartz movements for their internal clock. However, A. Lange & Söhne developed their own unique mechanical movement for keeping the watch’s rhythm. Gold and platinum plating creates a beautiful aesthetic, making these watches extremely desirable and suitable for use as investments or collateral.

What determines the loan value on A. Lange & Söhne watches?

Over the years, A. Lange & Söhne has created many different watches, each with an individual set of characteristics – most off them hold high value at pawn shops. From luxury wristwatches to older, bejeweled pocket watches, every piece of A. Lange & Söhne is a piece of craftsmanship. Therefore, when considering to pawn your A. Lange & Söhne watch, the price may differ from seemingly identical pieces. But to give you an idea of how much your A. Lange & Söhne watch might sell for and its potential loan value, in 2007 a 1904 pocket watch, crafted from 18K pink gold, sold at Christie’s auction house for $950,000 (£741,000). Another notable example was at the Phillips Geneva auction house in 2018, where a 1815 model sold for $852,525 (£665,000). Keeping in mind the four characteristics, listed below, will allow you to get the most accurate loan price for the A. Lange & Söhne watch you intend to borrow against at pawn shop.

The condition

The combined external and internal conditions of your watch will determine its overall evaluation. If fine watches like A. Lange & Söhne, Rolex, or Patek Phillipe are perceived to be in a quality close to the original, this will naturally increase the evaluation price at pawn shops. Apart from the obvious external condition, the most effective way of judging the entire condition of your A. Lange & Söhne watch is to bring it into our pawnbroker, where our fine watch experts can give it a thorough examination.

The age

Older models are more sought-after due to their backstories and rarity. These watches have survived some of the most turbulent times in European history. Some have even been seen in the hands and on the wrists of notable historical figures. The Tsar of Russia, Alexander II commissioned A. Lange & Söhne especially to craft a perfect chronometer, for which the Tsar was extremely grateful. The German autocracy also rubbed shoulders with the notable watchmaker: Kaiser Wilhelm II gave the watches to diplomats and influential hosts as gifts. With a history like this, the age and the era of your A. Lange & Söhne model can play an important role in its loan value at our Central London pawn shop.

The model

Different A. Lange & Söhne models are valued at different levels, depending on the overall demand for them. For example, the Lange 1 model was the first edition to be issued after the resurrection of the watchmaker in 1990, so is particularly valued for pawning purpuses. However, the watchmaker issues many boutique, decorated, and handcrafted watches outside of its core family range. Of course, the model of your A. Lange & Söhne watch is not everything, and the value you can borrow on it is determined by a combination of age, condition, provenance, and model. A. Lange & Söhne signature models include:

  • Lange 1
  • Zeitwerk
  • Saxonia
  • 1815
  • Richard Lange

The provenance 

Provenance is the documented history of the watch. An original bill of sale, original box, servicing papers, or other official paperwork will also determine the overall value of loans on your A. Lange & Söhne watch. The collateral loan on your A. Lange & Söhne watch will be greatly affected by the depth and breadth of the provenance you can provide when visiting our Mayfair pawn shop.
