FEATURES & SPECIFICATIONS
The name 1815 stands for the birth year of Ferdinand A. Lange, who established Germany’s precision watchmaking industry in Glashütte.
The design of the 1815 is characterised by traditional style elements: with blued hands, Arabic numerals and the railway-track minute scale, it is a worthy ambassador of Lange’s watchmaking heritage.
The solid-silver dial with the recessed central segment borrows its iconic design from Lange’s legendary pocket watches and endows the 1815 with exceptional depth. As in hunter-cased pocket watches, the subsidiary seconds dial is arranged at a 90-degree angle relative to the winding stem.
The 1815 is endowed with many features of A. Lange and Söhne pocket watches, including the large three-quarter plate. It is made of untreated German silver that in the course of the years takes on a patina with a distinctive pale golden hue. Because this rarely used material is extremely sensitive, the assembly work requires considerable experience and must be performed with great care.
