The 1815 Chronograph is perhaps the finest chronograph currently available on the market. It's history is linked to that of the Datograph, which hosted the first new manually wound chronograph movement in many years. Prior to this, watchmakers used movements derived (or indeed, straight from) third party ebauches (base movements).
The movement is nothing short of exquisite in its design and finishing, and has often been described as a miniature city. A plethora of high-end finishing techniques are put on display, from hand-polished chamfers to mirror-polished components.
In 2004, the brand presented the 1815 Chronograph as a thinner and simpler alternative to the Datograph. Its simplicity was attractive at a time when watchmakers were chasing complications and complexity.
So far, there have been three iterations of the 1815 Chronograph. The first generation comes with a pulsometer, which is used to measure the human heartbeat. While the second generation did away with this and presented a cleaner aesthetic, the pulsometer returned with the third generation in 2015.
A. LANGE & SÖHNE
From the ashes of the Cold War, A. Lange & Söhne's relaunch in 1994 reintroduced the world to both the brand and the concept of fine German watchmaking. When its first four watches debuted, they formed the crest of a resurgent wave of high-end watchmaking. This period marked the high tide of the watchmaking renaissance that began in the late 1970s as a response to the Quartz Crisis. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Lange has since gone from strength to strength, building up a highly-focused range of watches that show off its signature complications and Teutonic aesthetics.
While other brands look to their own history for inspiration, Lange takes a broader view. The brand prides itself in being a thought leader, being one of the first manufactures to produce an in-house manually wound chronograph from scratch a full decade before Patek Philippe. At the same time, Lange also draws design cues from its surroundings, with the most famous example being the 'outsized date' window being inspired by the Five-Minute Clock at the Semper Opera House in Dresden.
This unique combination gives Lange a unique position. While the brand is part of a large luxury group and produces more watches than the highly-revered independent watchmakers, Lange collectors are arguably more passionate than their contemporaries who focus on other brands. The brand's positioning as a challenger while adhering to traditional watchmaking created an alluring combination that managed to excite even the most cynical of collectors, and continues to do so over 25 years after its revival.
