Traditional elements (4/9)
Blued screws are typical of Lange watches and go back to the era of F. A. Lange. Their cornflower-blue glimmer results from a special thermal treatment. Not only are they colorfully contrasting the polished gold chatons, the red rubies and the plates and bridges made of German silver; today, they also symbolize a special (unique) step in the fine watchmaking process: the double assembly - this time-consuming second assembly process is performed with every watch, without exception.

The 1815 UP/DOWN and TOURBOGRAPH PERPETUAL “Pour le Mérite” – like all the watches from the 1815 family – pay tribute to traditional pocket watches. Various elements like the minuterie, blued steel hands, Arabic numerals, screwed gold chatons and sunk dials are reminiscent of the timepieces' rich heritage.

Many historic pocket watches possess black Arabic numerals. They were needed, to comply with the requirements of the General Railroad Timepiece Standards. These standards were drafted in the 19th century to guarantee the legibility and reliability of pocket watches used in railroading. All models from the 1815 family still share this striking historic characteristic.
