A,Lange & Söhne 1815 Rattrapante Perpetual Calendar Watch

A,Lange & Söhne 1815 Rattrapante Perpetual Calendar Watch

A.Lange & Söhne is definitely a very important watch company in the world of watches. This amazing company is a subsidiary of Richemont SA.

This German watchmaking company was founded back in 1845 by Ferdinand Lange. He dedicated himself to produce watches that contained mechanical movements rather than quartz with a very few exceptions that included some special editions.

The Lange watch cases are either made of gold or platinum. The movements they produce are developed and assembled by the company itself. These movements are exclusively made of a metal that is specifically known by the name of “German Silver”.

The name of this new watch is 1815 Rattrapante Perpetual Calendar. This amazing piece is mainly to commemorate Ferdinand Lange. 1815 is the date of birth when Lange was born. This beautiful and luxurious timepiece combines two amazing complications: a perpetual calendar and a split seconds chronograph.

This knockout timepiece is privileged with an in house caliber called the L.101.0. This movement is very special because of its rarity and complexity. It’s made of 631 different parts, along with four screwed gold chatons and 43 jewels.

This movement is privileged with an oscillator. The oscillator is basically a screw balance with a very high capacity to resist shocks. It has a balance made of superior quality elements.

The movement has 21,600 semi-oscillations per hour, along with an astonishing power reserve of 42 hours.

This watch has several interesting functions such as the leap year, moon phase and the power reserve indicator, a perpetual calendar, a split seconds chronograph or rattrapante.

This beauty is privileged with four sub dials. It seems to be a lot of sub dials but in fact they make it to look even more exotic and luxurious. The sub dials located at 9 and 3 shows the perpetual calendar. The dial located at six displays the moon phase.

The case of this incredible watch has a diameter of 41.9mm and 14.7mm of height.
