A. Lange & Sohne - 1815 "200th Anniversary F. A. Lange"

| No comment
A. Lange & Söhne celebrates the 200th anniversary of the birth of Ferdinand  Adolph Lange, the founder of Saxon precision watchmaking, with a limited edition timepiece of the 1815 collection.

The 1815 "200th Anniversary F. A. Lange" has a 40 mm x 8.8 mm platinum case with a black solid-silver dial of great elegance.

With its three levels, the subsidiary seconds at 6 o’clock, Arabic numerals and the railway-track minute scale the dial is directly inspired to the pocket watches crafted by Ferdinand Adolph Lange.

The L051.1 manufacture calibre, visible through the the sapphire-crystal caseback, is a pure example of the Saxon watchmaking skills: apart from the threequarter plate made of untreated German silver, key hallmarks include the hand-engraved balance cock, the classic screw balance, the whiplash spring, the gold chatons that secure the bearing jewels, and the thermally blued screws. The movement beats at 21,600 vibrations per hour with a power reserve of 55 hours.

Ferdinand A. Lange introduced the final form of the distinctive three-quarter plate in 1864, a solution that contributed to the stability of Lange’s movements and defined the style of Saxon watchmaking.

The serial number engravings on the case from 001/200 to 200/200 identify each watch as an anniversary edition.

The 1815 "200th Anniversary F. A. Lange" (ref.236.049) is a 200-piece limited edition with a retail price of Euro 31,500 / US$33,500. To know more about the life of Ferdinand Adolph Lange, check out the video below.
