The principles of founder Ferdinand A. Lange stating that “each piece be as simple as possible and serve its purpose steadfastly and reliably”, continue to ring true for the 1815 in white gold from A. Lange & Söhne.
With its two-tier design and the subsidiary seconds at 6 o’clock, the solid-silver dial is reminiscent of Lange’s historic pocket watches. This look is emphasised by a gently contoured bezel and the slender lugs. A railway-track minute scale, black Arabic numerals and blued-steel hands accentuate the classic appearance of the watch that is housed in the modestly sized 38.5mm case.
Powered by the manually wound Lange calibre L051.1, this watch has a power reserve of 55 hours and features hand-decorated movement parts. Many traditional Lange hallmarks are visible through the sapphire-crystal caseback: the three-quarter plate made of untreated German silver, a hand-engraved balance cock, a screw balance, a whiplash spring, screwed gold chatons, and thermally blued screws.
