Ferdinand Adolph Lange established a watch factory in Glashutte in 1845, laying the ground work for Saxon watchmaking. To celebrate 200 years since his birthdate, a limited edition of the 1815 timepiece has been produced.

The 1815 “200th Anniversary F. A. Lange” is presented in a platinum case measuring 40 mm by 8.9 mm (not available in the 38.5 mm version), with a black solid silver dial. The lance-shaped hour and minute hands are in rhodiumed white gold. The small second hand is also in rhodiumed white gold. The out chapter ring is printed with a while minute track. The hours are marked by white, printed Arabic numerals.

Inside is the caliber L051.1, a 23 jewel manually wound movement with 188 parts, 5 screwed gold chatons and a 55-hour power reserve. It features untreated German silver plates and bridges, is decorated and assembled by hand, precision adjusted in five positions and has a hand engraved balance cock.

The 1815 “200th Anniversary F. A. Lange” comes with a black, hand-stitched alligator strap with a platinum pin buckle. Limited edition of 200 watches, engraved 001/200, and so on. (Ref. 236.049)
