Esquire Malaysia Watch Guide - - Brand Story -

The 1815 is Lange’s most clas­sic col­lec­tion, pay­ing trib­ute to the year that the brand was orig­i­nally es­tab­lished more than 200 years ago. This time, it gets an an­nual cal­en­dar com­pli­ca­tion fol­low­ing the Sax­o­nia An­nual Cal­en­dar in 2010. In­stead of the au­to­matic move­ment in the Sax­o­nia, this an­nual cal­en­dar gets a hand-wound move­ment as a sub­tle trib­ute to founder, Fer­di­nand Adolph Lange. As the story goes, it was in 1866 that he ob­tained a patent that would re­place the tra­di­tional key-op­er­ated winder with a crown winder. This 1815 An­nual Cal­en­dar also comes with a but­ton at two o’clock to col­lec­tively ad­vance all in­di­ca­tions, which re­ally comes in handy, say, if the watch hasn’t been worn in awhile.
