  • Catalogue Essay

    Originally introduced in the 1990s, shortly after the revitalization of the firm by Walter Lange, the 1815 model was launched. Being one of the earliest patents by the firm in 1879, the 1815 model first featured an “up/down” power reserve indication inspired from pocket watches made by the brand back in the 1930s. While the first generation 1815 up/down models featured a case measuring 35.9mm, it was only in 2013 when the second generation was introduced featuring a contemporized case size measuring 39mm. The model was offered in white gold or pink gold both featuring the Saxon watchmaker’s classic Argenté dial, keeping the aesthetics traditional and legible. Indicating time through its iconic blued steel hands, the 1815 up/down is a timeless and elegant wristwatch for any discerning gentleman. The present example in pink gold ref. 234.032 is offered in attractive overall condition and complete 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.
