At SIHH 2014, A. Lange & Söhne introduced a new 1815 model with a 38.5 mm case that's been added to the 40 mm version so offering a wider choice to the many fans of this timepiece.
1815 is the birth year of Ferdinand A. Lange, the founder of A. Lange & Söhne, and the collection paying homage to him well adheres to his original product philosophy: "Each piece be as simple as possible and serve its purpose steadfastly and reliably”.
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. A railway-track minute scale, black Arabic numerals and blued-steel hands accentuate the classic appearance of the watch while enhancing the legibility.
The manually wound calibre L051.1 offers a power reserve of 55 hours and is visible through the sapphire-crystal caseback making it possible to enjoy details like the three-quarter plate made of German silver, a hand-engraved balance cock, screwed gold chatons and thermally blued screws.
The classic, understated case of the A. Lange & Söhne 1815 is available in yellow (ref. 235-021), pink (ref. 235-032) and white gold (ref. 235-026).
