An elegant and versatile dress watch is arguably a must-have for all watch collectors. The watch that you can wear for any function, no matter how formal, without raising an eyebrow…unless it’s an eyebrow of recognition from a fellow watch lover. It’s hard to find a watch better for the job than this A. Lange & Sohne 1815 Up/Down.
It’s a relatively simple watch, with just two subdials, a running seconds at 4 o’clock and a power reserve indicator at 8 o’clock, and it’s inside a supremely wearable case that’s just 38.5 x 8.7 mm in size, which is pretty much the ideal for a dress watch. But even with this uncluttered dial and svelte profile, the watch is unmistakably a Lange. It’s one of those watches that you could identify across the room, and that’s a good thing, because it means that the watch is fully imbued with the Lange DNA.
And when you turn the watch over, you get that pure Lange awesomeness that we’ve all come to love – like the German silver 3/4 plate, screwed gold chatons, and engraved balance cock.
