Just a few days ago, A. Lange & Sohne replica watch released the 1815 200th Anniversary F.A. Lange watch, celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birthday of Ferdinand Adolph Lange. The latest release in anticipation of SIHH 2016 is the new A. Lange & Sohne 1815 Tourbillon Handwerkskunst replica watch.
Handwerkskunst is the german word for “artisanship,” and for a swiss replica watch from Lange to earn that distinction likely isn’t an easy feat for the watch makers involved. What makes them special isn’t so much about what’s going on in the watch but, rather, the engraving and work put into the dial.
Aside from having a tourbillon that shares a cutout with the seconds dial, the A. Lange & Sohne 1815 Tourbillon Handwerkskunst replica watch married two features in a way that had not been done before. Lange is known to be the first company to create a tourbillon with a stop-seconds device in 2008 with their Cabaret Tourbillon replica watch, meaning that when the wearer pulls out the crown, the tourbillon also stops, and this allows for increased precision when setting the time.
That A. Lange & Sohne 1815 Tourbillon Handwerkskunst replica watch is a limited edition. The dial of this version is made of a black-rhodiumed pink gold with tremblage engraving. To make the surface smooth, Lange uses a special lining burin which still allows the granular look that makes this dial unique. The brand logo and numerals lend a beautiful contrast to the dial that really makes this reserved timepiece have a bit of flair.
