A very pleasant surprise

When I reacquired my ALS 1815 a couple months ago, it came with an old style box that is showing some wear. I’ve been on the hunt, high and low for a newer style ALS box in better shape. Well look what arrived today, in top shape! I’m thrilled!

Took about 2 months of searching. I contacted ALS in Germany, several AD’s, several non-AD’s with whom I’ve done business with before, various other sources that sell watch boxes and accessories. Apparently ALS Germany won’t sell them separately, and no o...

I was a big fan of the original 1815 boxes with the internal pouch to hold all the papers -- as well as the original square boxes where the papers were stored underneath the watch holder. We never needed more than that! And there was the third (larger) or...

For the very interesting history lesson! I’ve owned a few 1815’s, one came with the square box, (as you have shown in your first pic), the other three with the longer box, as I have pictured in my original post For me, the box I just acquired is the more ...

Lange definitely mixed and matched those original boxes. Sometimes 1815s would come in the larger boxes, etc. I think Lange would provide a different box type upon request of the customer or AD.
