A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Rattrapante Perpetual Calendar Handwerkskunst

 

Craftsmanship at its best

This is the first A. Lange & Söhne model to combine enamel art and engraving on its dial. Solid white gold is the substrate for the deep-blue enamel beneath which the sculpted contours of the relief-engraved stars appear to be a visual extension of the moon-phase display. The Arabic numerals are flush with the enamel and harmonise perfectly with the rhodiumed white-gold hands of the time and calendar indications as well as of the power-reserve indicator.
