Two new models for A. Lange’s ladies collection, Saxonia in white (Ref. 878.029) and brown (Ref. 878.038) tinted mother-of-pearl dial.
In addition to the existing 40mm Lange 1815′s (Ref 233), the 1815 is now also available with a diameter of 38.5mm – in pink, yellow, and white gold. At 8.8mm, t he watch is also 0.1mm thinner than its (slightly) bigger brother. Size aside, the watch is unchanged — two-tier dial design and the subsidiary seconds at 6 o’clock, railway-track minute scale, black Arabic numerals and blued-steel hands, argenté-coloured dial, gently contoured bezel and the slender lugs. The Lange Caliber L051.1 is also the same. The downsized Lange 1815 will surely grab the attention of discerning collectors.
A. Lange & Soehne’s Lange 1 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar combines two classic complications with the iconic design of A. Lange & Söhne’s most famous watch family. This is not a new model, but a new metal offering — pink gold. Configured around the time indication, the calendar displays and the peripheral month ring deliver full time and date readings at a single glance. All of the perpetual calendar displays advance instantaneously (date, day of the week, month, leap year, and moon phase) – further, the mechanism is designed in such a way that it must be adjusted by just one day in the year 2100. And the moon-phase display will even run true for 122.6 years before it needs to be corrected.
