The new 1815 HANDWERKSKUNST (6/6)
The artfully designed movement of the 1815 RATTRAPANTE PERPETUAL CALENDAR HANDWERKSKUNST reflects the pursuit for perfection for which A. Lange & Söhne is known: Several bridges and plates of the 631-part manufacture calibre are decorated with 59 relief-engraved stars and a tremblage finish.

The new 1815 HANDWERKSKUNST (5/6)
In the past, it was crucial to protect the watch movement from dirt and damage, thus, a hinged cuvette was mounted to shield the movement. Nowadays, the movement is sufficiently protected by a sapphire-crystal caseback. The cuvette now functions as a kind of curtain and, when opened, allows a view at the artfully designed and accurately adjusted movement.

The new 1815 HANDWERKSKUNST (4/6)
The hinged cuvette that protects the sapphire-crystal caseback depicts the goddess Luna, the mythological personification of the moon, on a solid white-gold medallion. She is shown with her characteristic attributes: a billowing veil, a crescent moon diadem and a torch with which she lights up the dark.

The dial of the 1815 RATTRAPANTE PERPETUAL CALENDAR HANDWERKSKUNST consists of a blue middle segment, a deep-blue enamelled outer segment as well as four subsidiary dials made of argenté-coloured white gold. For the first time, A. Lange & Söhne combines the techniques of enamelling and engraving on the dial, thus, turning this limited edition into a truly distinct timepiece.

Crafted Art (2/2)
An external engraver, who has been practicing his craft for more than sixty years, has prepared a template for a brass emblem for us. With a steady hand, he carries out all steps in the process that are meanwhile mostly done by machines. His work is a testimony to living craftsmanship – and marks the beginning of an exciting event.

Looking forward to 16th September. Follow us on the traces of passion and craftsmanship

Combining enamelling and engraving (1/3)
Due to its combination of classic complications, the 1815 RATTRAPANTE PERPETUAL CALENDAR already attracted a great deal of admiration at the time of its release in 2013. Today, the 1815 RATTRAPANTE PERPETUAL CALENDAR HANDWERKSKUNST demonstrates how artisanal virtuosity becomes grand art by combining intricate and rare techniques: The cuvette on the white-gold caseback depicts the ancient goddess Luna, executed in relief and tremblage engraving, with her characteristic attributes in front of a blue-enamelled sky.

Combining enamelling and engraving (2/3)
The 631-part manufacture calibre L101.1 stands out with the rare combination of a split-seconds chronograph and a perpetual calendar with a moon-phase display. Artistic movement decorations complement the technically ambitious multiple-complication timepiece. Using relief and tremblage techniques, a total of 59 stars have been engraved into the movement’s bridges and plates.

Combining enamelling and engraving (3/3)
Solid white gold serves as the foundation for the deep-blue enamel of the 1815 RATTRAPANTE PERPETUAL CALENDAR HANDWERKSKUNST. 319 hand-engraved stars emerge from the enamel and appear like an extension of the moon-phase display. The time indication of the hours, minutes, and subsidiary seconds with stop seconds, as well as the rattrapante chronograph with minute counter, the perpetual calendar and the power-reserve indicator are situated amidst the enamelled star-studded sky.

Blue Series: LANGE 1 (1/4)
Throughout history, finding a suitable blue pigment for painting has proven to be a challenging and expensive task. Ultramarine, made from lapis lazuli, has been extremely rare and valuable - Albrecht Dürer measured its worth in gold. 
The timeless fascination of this colour inspired A. Lange & Söhne to equip four models of the latest collection with a blue-galvanised solid-silver dial and a white-gold case – one of which is the LANGE 1.
