A. Lange and Sohne reveal a special 1815 Tourbillon.
The 1815 Tourbillon is a rather understated luxury watch. That’s not to say that it’s not impressive, but A. Lange and Sohne have created so many other fantastic pieces over the years that this particular model fell behind in popularity. Still, while the Datograph Perpetual Tourbillon and the Tourbograph are exceptional in their own way, the 1815 Tourbillon is in the spotlight right now, and for a very good reason.
A. Lange and Sohne have created a special, limited edition version of this watch, one that boasts a unique, different dial. The piece still shows off its main attraction at the 6 o’clock mark, and the case still measures 39.5mm. This limited edition 1815 Tourbillon impresses with a silky smooth, crisp white enamel white dial that contrasts beautifully with the blue steel hands and black polished tourbillon bridge.
What about the movement?
The 1815 Tourbillon is animated by an A. Lange & Sohne L102.1 hand-wound movement. This caliber can be admired in its entire splendor through the full sapphire case back. It offers a power reserve of 72 hours, as well as counters for hours, minutes, and seconds. Limited to 100 units, this timepiece would set you back $197,200, which sounds just about right for a premium watch created by a premium brand. But why did the company create this special version of the 1815 model anyway? Well, Anthony de Haas, Director of Product Development explained:
“The enamel dial accentuates the classic design, which is adapted from Lange’s pocket watches with their Arabic numerals, chemin de fer minute scale, and blued steel hands. The basic idea was to build a credible bridge from the origins of watchmaking to the present.”
