The A. Lange & Sohne 1815 Chronograph is the passage level chronograph of the Saxonian Manufacture… and what a section level watch! This visually basic watch shares its base development (simply a smidgen changed to eliminate the Date and the force save) with the notable Dufour-Graph, the A. Lange & Sohne Datograph – very much a pedigree, you’ll admit. Today, there is another edition on the market, the A. Lange & Sohne 1815 Chronograph Boutique Edition, that revamps a feature that a few authorities will adore, a pulsation scale.
As said, the 1815 Chronograph is the younger sibling of the notable Datograph . It shares the same base development (in this specific situation, the Caliber L951.5) and the same wonderful completing however in a clean, crisper style. A few authorities even locate this 1815 more intriguing than the Dato because of this smooth plan and thinner profile (because of the lack of the large date and the force hold indicator – the Up/Down complication). The A. Lange & Sohne 1815 Chronograph is the unadulterated substance of a chronograph – especially the actual edition. The 1815 Chronograph came in two generations. The first ( here ), with its inward flange printed with a pulsation scale, and the subsequent one ( here ), with its improved development (longer force save) and mainly a dial bereft of any scale and with larger subsidiary counters. Nonetheless, it appears to be that this most current edition lacks something in the heart of long-term authorities, such an outdated charm (and that’s also why the old 1815 Chrono starts to gain on the recycled market). Default corrected: Lange makes a stage back and brings back the pulsometer.
The Boutique Edition of the A. Lange & Sohne 1815 Chronograph brings back the plan of the old edition, with a raised inward flange printed with the same sort of pulsation scale, leaving in this manner its smooth plan for a busier however more energetic and vintage-situated dial. While the normal edition feels somewhat monochromatic ( see the white gold edition we investigated as of late ), this Boutique Edition brings a lot of (cold) shading to the dial, hands and strap, all accentuated in blue. All the dials’s engravings are currently utilizing this tone, along these lines matching with the subsidiary hands (chronograph central second, 30-minute counter and small second) while the hour and moment hands match with the case in 18k white gold.
This A. Lange & Sohne 1815 Chronograph Boutique Edition will be officially unveiled during the 2015 edition of Watches & Wonders (along with 3 other watches… however that’s too soon to reveal more). It may be available in one of the 16 official boutiques of the brand (see here for the nearest) in a non-restricted run (yet in a small creation). Price: taking into account that the normal edition in 18k white gold is valued at 44.400 Euros, expect around 50.000 Euros for this Boutique Edition. More details on the official site of A.
