1815 Moon Phase - Unforgettable Masterpieces

From the A. Lange & Sohne website:


On the occasion of Emil Lange’s 150th birthday in 1999 and to pay tribute to his horological accomplishments, his watchmaking descendants crafted this masterpiece as a symbolic monument in his honour. The moon-phase display is so precise that it only needs to be corrected by one day every 1058 years. The 1815 MOON PHASE was built in 1999 and 2000. The edition was limited to 250 pink-gold and 150 platinum models.

...but I am even more interested in the watch in the background. Annual Calendar? If I do buy a Lange that would probably be the one.

Yes, it is the Saxonia Annual Calendar

Yes it is. This is still my favorite Lange (since I have one and not the 1815 Chrono or Datograph).

To me, this may be a perfect Lange...

...really beautiful, and the layout of the dial is exceptional. I may need to start a hunt for a platinum version. Congratulations : )

Fantastic shot of a not less fantastic reference.

Which truly deserves the "special" moniker! 

Yep, with the Langematik Anniversary, the RL PLM Pt, and the RL Jumping Seconds. [nt]

incredible how Lange can create entire universes in a watch dial.

Yes indeed! This is where having a small wrist is a good thing!...
