Why are 1815 watches so special?

The 1815 watch collection is the most symbolic of the entire range of A. Lange & Sohne watches. Turns out that in that year, the horological artist Ferdinand Adolph Lange was born – the founder of the Glashütte watch industry. In fact, this collection of watches pays a great tribute to this personality. He stood out for his deep and passionate devotion to the watch industry. Also, Ferdinand Adolph Lange contributed enormously to the evolution of watches and established precision watchmaking in Germany.

In this sense, the watches in this collection preserve the watchmaking artisanal perfection that ideally illustrates Lange’s horological passion. They stand out for their high-contrast design, surprising legibility, and expressive contemporary elements. As far as it seems, this is the recipe for timeless timepieces.

A few words in tribute to Ferdinand Adolph Lange

Ferdinand Adolph Lange was a fervent follower of precision and detailing. He stood out for his modest but brave temperament at the same time. These traits served as inspiration for the 1815 collection. Thus, these watches are characterized by ultra-fine dials yet highly meticulous in detail.

The distinctive feature of the 1815 is the unique railway-track minute scale. This symbolizes a transition to the era of modern watches and the beginning of a new watch company in Glashütte. Also, the gorgeous Arabic numerals along with fine blued-steel hands dramatically increase the legibility of these watches.

On the reverse side…

The 1815 watches are distinguished by a sapphire crystal that represents a window to perfection. The movement that emerges behind the crystal has ultra-refined shapes and contours. It houses some unique complications that only A. Lange & Sohne can produce. In the same context, all the models in this family are manually wound.

One of the most remarkable models of the 1815 collection is the Rattrapante Perpetual Calendar which houses 2 traditional complications. This model is the embodiment of classic perfection. Last but not least, the remarkable 1815 collection remains true to the era of pocket watches. This is because you can find many design elements in the 1815 models that A. Lange & Sohne used in its pocket watches. As such, you will find in them 300°C-blued screws, sturdy German silver three-quarter plate, as well as hand-engraved balance cock. Therefore, we speak about a true work of art when we speak about 1815 watches.
