A. Lange & Söhne celebrates the 150th anniversary of its longtime partner Uhren Huber in Munich with a larger version of the 1815 in a limited edition – the 1815 KALENDERWOCHE . Watches created by "A. Lange & Söhne" always stand out because of their ability to combine simple elegance with technical perfection and the 1815 – which gets its name after the year company founder Ferdinand Adolph Lange was born – is the most striking evidence of this skill we know. The manual winding calibre L045.1 activates two extra functions that are extremely useful. The 1815 KALENDERWOCHE has a third hand fixed in the centre that is different from the time hands in shape and colour and allows the wearer to use the watch as a kind of yearly calendar. This special edition only available at Uhren Huber in Munich does not have a full calendar but is fitted with a second useful function – it displays the day of the week in the inner dial at 6, a location that is usually reserved for the auxiliary seconds; with the 1815 KALENDERWOCHE, the seconds hand shares its place with another small hand (that differs in shape and colour) for the days of the week. Both calendar functions can be adjusted or corrected individually through lateral pushers at "2" and at "4", for example after the watch has not been worn for a while. Only three times 50 of these extraordinary Lange watches were produced, in cases of platinum, yellow gold and red gold respectively. An engraving on the setting of the sapphire-glass back marks the limited edition as such. There is also an exclusive engraving on the ¾ plate that is visible through the sapphire-glass back: "Andreas Huber München 1856 – 2006" in gold letters.
