The name of the 1815 stands for the birth year of Ferdinand A. Lange, who was the founder of the German watchmaking industry in Glashuette. Its design is shaped by tradition. Beneath a minute ring that reminds us of a railway track, the 1815 is endowed with many features of A. Lange & Söhne pocket watches, including the large three-quarter plate. It is made of untreated German silver that in the course of the years takes on a patina with a distinctive pale golden hue. The polished chatons are bearings for a number of movement arbors. Traditionally, they are secured with blued screws at A. Lange & Söhne. Synthetic rubies are used as jewels. The ruby red of the jewel, the cornflower blue of the screws and the gold of the chatons constitute the movement’s traditional triad of colours. Beneath the hand-engraved balance cock, the screw balance performs 21,600 semi-oscillations per hour. Interacting with the pallet lever and the bilaterally polished escape wheel, it controls the steady beat of the manually wound movement, which has a power reserve of 55 hours.
