Whether it’s a simple three-hand watch or a state-of-the-art grande complication, every A Lange & Sohne creation is conceived with ample measures of taste and finesse.
The 1815 Annual Calendar espouses both these values, combining immaculate hand polishing and decoration with a complication that’s subtle but no less distinguished.
In spite of its abundant beauty, this is a no-nonsense timepiece that does its job single-mindedly and flawlessly.
The annual calendar displays the day, date and month throughout the year with the sole exception of February. This elegant example also has a moon phase indication by way of a blue electro-plated rotating disc on which gold stars and moons are applied. Echoing the colour of the disc are a pair of blued-steel hour-minute hands.
These are all very compelling reasons to wear the 1815 Annual Calendar to work but here’s another: take a look at the movement through the sapphire caseback and there you’ll see everything that makes A Lange & Sohne such a legendary manufacture.
