The name of the 1815 watch family is a reference to the year in which Ferdinand Adolph Lange was born. With its artisanal perfection and many elements that can be traced back to him, it is a fitting tribute to the man who established precision watchmaking in Germany. Its outstanding legibility and individual, high-contrast design render it a contemporary watch. 

Perhaps the most characteristic design element of the 1815 is the peripheral, railway-track minute scale. This is a testament to the watch bridging into the upcoming railway era – into a time when pocket watches were increasing in importance and when Ferdinand Adolph Lange established his company in Glashütte.
