A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Rattrapante Perpetual Calendar Handwerkskunst
The A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Rattrapante Perpetual Calendar, presented in January 2013 at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) for the first time, was and is a remarkable timekeeping instrument. It was the ideal starting point for a limited 20-watch “Handwerkskunst” (= craftsmanship) edition. It is the sixth A. Lange & Söhne model with the “Handwerkskunst” attribute that stands for the particularly artistic decoration of the movement, dial and case.
The confronted the finishers, engravers and enamel artists in Glashütte / Saxony / Germany with an exciting challenge: to raise the decorative opulence for which the manufactory is known to the next level with rare and in some cases revived techniques as well as innovative ideas.
The A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Rattrapante Perpetual Calendar Handwerkskunst is limited to 20 pieces and will be sold for 290.000 Euro including 19 % VAT each.
