A LANGE & SÖHNE ‘1815 ANNIVERSARY’
Watches & Wonders is gaining a reputation for being as much a trade fair as a showcase for the world’s watch journalists and buyers. The A Lange & Söhne display acknowledged the brand’s heritage founded in 1845 – but also centred on the present with this model to celebrate what would be the 200th birthday of founder, Ferdinand Adolph Lange. In a world of over complication and smartwatches, here it’s about simply – and handsomely – telling the time with an easy-to-read dial, sharp hands that speak to German precision and a modest 40mm case. This release also makes use of what’s become a go-to precious metal for A Lange & Söhne: honey gold.
