German manufacturer A. Lange & Söhne has released two new timepieces, the 1815 and the Saxonia Outsize Date.
The 1815 is named after the birthdate of founder Ferdinand Adolph Lange.
The company describes it as a watch inspired by the pocket watches of Lange’s era.
“The design of the 1815 is characterised by traditional hallmarks: with blued hands, Arabic numerals and the railway-track minute scale, it is an ambassador of Lange’s watchmaking tradition,” the brand says.
“The movement is endowed with traditional features as well such as the three-quarter plate made of untreated German silver, the blued screws, the screwed gold chatons and the hand-engraved balance cock.”
The Saxonia Outsize Date, meanwhile, pays homage in its aesthetics to the five-minute clock of the Dresden Semper Opera House, which Lange himself designed.
Furthermore, its name refers to his birthplace of Saxony.
