A-Lange-Söhne-1815-AnniversaryThe A. Lange & Söhne 1815 “200th Anniversary F. A. Lange” is a beautiful example for a modern wristwatch with an individual touch. It’s a typical dress watch that comes in a modern 40 mm case. The design of the watch is shaped by traditional features. The solid-silver dial with the recessed central segment and the small seconds at 6 o’clock borrows its iconic design from Lange’s legendary pocket watches and endows the 1815 “200th Anniversary F. A. Lange” with exceptional depth. With the Arabic numerals and the railway-track minute scale, this timepiece is a worthy ambassador of Lange’s watchmaking heritage. The golden hands contrast very well against the matte dial, so the legibility is really pretty good.

A-Lange-Söhne-1815-Anniversary-F-A-LangeThe 1815 “200th Anniversary F. A. Lange” is powered by the in-house manufacture calibre L051.1 which is made of 188 parts and 23 jewels and visible through the sapphire crystal case back. And it’s definitely worth a look because even though this is one of the more simple movements by A. Lange & Söhne, it gets the same decorative treatment and attention to detail as the more complicated ones.
The calibre provides a power reserve of approximately 55 hours when fully wound and features hours, minutes, subsidiary seconds and a stop-seconds mechanism. The L051.1 operates at 21.600 beats per hour (or 3 Hz).

The engravings 001/200 bis 200/200 point out the number of the watch in the limited edition.
