  • Catalogue Essay

    The A. Lange & Söhne 1815 model was named after the birth year of the firm when it was first founded. Introduced in 1994, the 1815 signifies the importance of craftsmanship and traditional approach to execution. With meticulous time spent for its movement production, the simplicity of the dial contrasted against the proudly displayed three-quarter bridged movement, collectors are immediately drawn to the romanticized idea of subtle complexion.

    The present example in yellow gold belongs to one of the first models of the 1815 collection and is further completed with the 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.
