In the assortment of A. Lange and Sohne, there are two classical, understated, elegant dress-watches. If the Saxonia is the passage level and basic offering (no offense here, it is a really great deal), the 1815 is the traditionalist one, the conservative side of A. Lange and Sohne. After a first version in platinum with a black dial , the brand keeps on celebrating the 200th anniversary of Ferdinand Adolph Lange (the founder of the manufacture) with another edition, the A. Lange & Sohne 1815 Anniversary of F.A. Lange, in Honey Gold.
Honey Gold is a proprietary alloy with an exceptionally soft honey tone, in the middle of the shade of the untreated German silver utilized for the developments and the bright and warm tone of yellow gold. It is softer, classier and more cautious – and more select as just available on certain releases of A. Lange and Sohne watches. Along with this case (that is as yet measuring a reasonable 40mm), the dial is also restrictive and features a somewhat grained surface – the dial is made of strong silver and is brilliant white colored. This 3-hand watch was beforehand just available in 3 versions: a silver dial with a white gold or a pink gold case and with blued hands or a rhodium dial with a platinum case and silver hands. At that point came the restricted release of the A. Lange and Sohne 1815 comes with a reflexive black dial . Presently we have this extremely unadulterated, almost brass looking edition.
The dial of the A. Lange and Sohne 1815 Anniversary of F.A. Lange is motivated by shiny dials of noteworthy observation watches and marine chronometers. It features a railroad minute track and large Arabic numeral for each hour. The hands, with their typically Lange shape, match the soft honey tone of the gold case. The display of the 1815 is straightforward: hours and minutes on the central axis and the second in a subsidiary dial at 6. As said, traditional and almost conservative, however so desirable.
Under the dial ticks the Lange manufacture caliber L051.1, a manually twisted development, with a large diameter that fills the case. It incorporates the typically German three-quarter plate made of untreated German silver (that is actually not made of silver), the hand-engraved balance cockerel, the classic screw balance, the exactness beat-adjustment framework with lateral set screw and whiplash spring, and five gold chatons that are gotten with thermally blued steel screws. It has a force save of 55 hours, with two barrels.
Like its black dial kin , the A. Lange and Sohne 1815 Anniversary of F.A. Lange in Honey Gold will be restricted to 200 pieces and priced at 31,500 Euros (much the same as the black dial/platinum edition). More details on A. Lange & Sohne official .
