The 2015 Hong Kong ‘Clocks and Miracles’ Asian High-end Watch Exhibition is about to open. Lange presents the new 1815 Chronograph for this purpose. This unique platinum chronograph with blue numerals and pulsometer scale is available only at 16 Lange stores worldwide.
Since 2010, the 1815 Chronograph has become a perfect example of a fusion of classic design and advanced technology. Arabic numerals and track-type minute markers inherit the noble and elegant appearance of Lange pocket watches. Ferdinando Adolf Lange founded the Lange Watch Factory in 1845, laying the cornerstone for Saxony to become a precision watchmaking center in the 19th century. On the 200th anniversary of the brand’s founder, Lange presents a special edition of the new 1815 Chronograph watch store in platinum.
In addition to the dark blue digits, the solid silver plate outer ring is also printed with a pulse meter scale for heart rate measurement. Pause the watch, and count 30 heartbeats, sweep the central second hand to directly display the heart beat frequency. The rhodium-plated gold hour and minute hands contrast sharply with the blued-steel central seconds, chronograph seconds and chronograph minutes hands, subtly displaying the dial color combination.
The watch is equipped with a L951.5 hand-wound column-wheel movement, equipped with a precision jumping-indicator and flyback timing function, and a full-string power reserve of 60 hours. The movement is equipped with an anti-vibration balance with an eccentric balance weight and a Lange-made balance spring to ensure accurate timekeeping and chronological performance.
