  • Catalogue Essay

    In 2014 Lange introduced the 1815 Tourbillon and like all its other creations, this timepiece is a beautiful piece of over engineering. The silver dial is inspiring in the simplicity of its minimalist design. It features a recessed center and elegant Arabic numerals paired with the firm’s signature blued hands. The extra-large opening of the dial allows an unobstructed view of the 13.2mm tourbillon that is held by a long faceted bridge crossing the lower part of the dial from 4 to 8 o’clock.

    With the 1815 Tourbillon, A. Lange & Söhne has gone to the origins of this complication: accuracy and improved it by adding a hacking system with zero reset, meaning that once the crown is pulled out the movement stops and the seconds hand, placed on the tourbillon cage, snaps to zero allowing precise time adjustment of the watch.

    The movement in all its Technicolor glory is pure Lange delight with its large Geneva waves (that the brand likes to call Glashütte waves), red rubies held within gold chatons secured by blued screws and a hand engraved balance cock. In a nod to traditional Saxon watchmaking the tourbillon is set within a diamond endstone.

    Extremely crisp and offered in “like new” overall condition with no signs of use and wear, the present example in 18K pink gold from circa 2021 is offered with its full set of accessories.

  • 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.
