  • Catalogue Essay

    Released in 2006, the A. Lange & Söhne 1815 “Cuvette” was made as a limited edition series to commemorate the 100th anniversary of German retailer Erding-Ordel. Made in two variants 18K pink gold (ref. 323.047) and white gold (ref. 323.046) with both examples limited to 38 pieces, the model is certainly a rare bird in the lineage of the 1815 model.

    Cased in an unusual 40mm diameter case, previous 1815 models featured a 36mm diameter case. Another interesting feature is its hinged caseback allowing the wearer to open to reveal the charismatic cal. L921.2 is equipped with the firm’s iconic SAX-0-MAT off-centred micro rotor and the special engraving commemorating Oeding-Erdel’s 100th-anniversary inscription.

    Offered in “like new” overall condition the present example A. Lange & Söhne 1815 “Cuvette” in 18K pink gold from circa 2011 numbered 16 is complete with its full set of accessories. Furthermore to the best of our knowledge, it is also the first ever example of the reference in pink gold to be ever offered at auction, making this truly a rare opportunity for Lange lovers to acquire a rare limited edition 1815 with a special hinged caseback.

  • Artist Biography

    A. Lange & Söhne

    German • 1845

    Originally founded in 1845 by Ferdinand Adolph Lange in Glashütte, Dresden, Germany, the firm established an entire watchmaking culture and industry in Glashütte. The brand quickly became Germany's finest watchmaker, first creating dependable, easy-to-repair watches before going on to produce some of the world's finest complicated pocket watches, including Grande Sonnerie watches, tourbillon watches and Grande Complications.

    On the final day of World War II, their factories were destroyed by Russian bombers, and in 1948 the brand was confiscated by the Soviet Union. Following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1990, Ferdinand's great grandson Walter Lange re-established the brand with the objective to once again produce top-quality luxury watches. Now part of the Richemont Group, its original vintage and modern creations are highly coveted by collectors. Key models from the modern era include the Lange 1, Pour Le Mérite Tourbillon and the Zeitwerk.
