1815 ‘200th Anniversary F. A. Lange’ is perfect and pure. It is Lange’s latest masterpiece, limited to 200 pieces. Lange specially created this watch to commemorate the great contribution and extraordinary leadership of the brand founder.

  The L051.1 self-made movement is a tribute to the pioneers of Saxony watchmaking by Lange. Every detail reflects the timeless design and perfect craftsmanship. In addition to the 3/4 plywood made of untreated German silver, this watch also has a number of signature elements, including hand-carved balance wheel splints, classic screw balances, gooseneck-style fine-adjustment levers, and rubies fixed in gold sleeve Bearings and blue steel screws. The case is individually engraved with serial numbers 001/200 to 200/200, making each anniversary watch a unique treasure.

   The 40mm case is crafted from platinum 950 with a black solid silver dial, giving the watch a contemporary and elegant feel. The surface has a three-layer design and a small seconds dial at 6 o’clock, reminiscent of the legendary pocket watch created by Ferdinando Adolf Lange. In 1843, Lange, then 28, wrote to the Saxony government expressing his ambition ‘to create a simple and perfect watch masterpiece through his own research and efforts.’ In the letter, he outlined plans to make pocket watches in Saxony. Two years later, he set up his own watch factory and gradually realized his dream. Glashütte was transformed from a former mining town into a hub for fine watchmaking.

   Until Lange laid the cornerstone for the brand in the international market with innovative timekeeping functions, pocket watches with jumping seconds, permanent springs, and clock timekeeping devices, he had been focusing on making simple pocket watches. After continuous design improvements, Lange’s work has reached an outstanding and reliable level of precision, which has led to a steady rise in the company’s business. The best example is the 3/4 splint, which went through several stages of development and was officially launched in 1864. The 3/4 splint stabilizes the operation of the Lange movement, while exhibiting the unique style of Saxon watchmaking. The new generation of Lange watches are also equipped with this important component, whose extraordinary style and design elements are clearly visible under the sapphire crystal case back.
   The 1815 ‘200th Anniversary F. A. Lange’ limited edition commemorative watch has now arrived at Lange’s new specialty store on Nanjing West Road in Shanghai. Welcome friends who love Lange to explore.
