A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Rattrapante Perpetual Calendar Handwerkskunst

The A. Lange & S√∂hne¬†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 & S√∂hne 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 Glash√ľtte / 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.
