A.Lange & Söhne expands its presence with key Leeds retailer


German watchmaker A. Lange  Söhne has become one of the most visible watch brands at Owen & Robinson in Leeds after the retailer installed a corner display for the German watchmaker.

Owen & Robinson is owned by the same parent organisation as Leeds powerhouse jeweller Berry’s, which has three other boutiques in its home city.


It is one of only five agencies for A. Lange  Söhne, and the only one in the north of England.

George Pragnell in Stratford-Upon-Avon is the only other retailer outside of London working with the brand.

CEO of A. Lange & Söhne Wilhelm Schmid, personally unveiled the new corner at Owen & Robinson. “For A. Lange & Söhne, the first presence in northern England is of considerable importance,” he said.

“We have a loyal and ever growing customer base here and a fantastic domestic demand for luxury watches. Owen & Robinson is a great partner, who is passionately committed to the brand and guarantees the best quality of service and advice.” Mr Schmid added.

Matthew Abbey, manager of Owen & Robinson jewellers, commented: “We are delighted to be only the fifth UK retailer to stock A. Lange & Söhne watches and the only retailer in the north of England. As one of the world’s leading watch brands.

“We are very excited to be working in partnership with A. Lange & Söhne and look forward to introducing this international brand to our customers.”
