HANDS-ON: Saxony at its most serious – UK Cheap Replica A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Up/Down

Even though there’s no doubt that the darlings of A. Lange & Söhne’s lineup are the more contemporarily styled pieces like the Lange One and the Zeitwerk, there’s still a place for deeply traditional design the catalogue of Glashütte’s favourite son – and that’s the 1815 collection.

Named for the year of founder Ferdinand A. Lange’s birth, the 1815 family of watches takes as its inspiration early marine chronometres. First developed in the 18th Century, these ship-bound timepieces were extremely accurate, and a vital tool in navigation. And while the design isn’t what we’d associate with tool watches these days, make no mistake, legibility and reliability were the name of the game. It’s logical that Lange, those masters of function and style, adopt this distinctive look as the trademark for their 1815 collection. With the blued sword-style hands, railroad minute track (with the brand’s distinctive triple dot at the cardinal points) and the ornate, Jugendstil numerals the luxury fake A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Up/Down would look just as stylish in 1915 as it does today.

For me though, the most charming feature of this watch is the bottom-heavy subdial layout, a sure sign (if any were needed from Lange) that the L051.2 movement definitely isn’t an off the shelf ebauche. And while the right-hand dial displays the running seconds, it’s the Auf/Ab indicator on the left that is the soul of this watch. If your deutsche is up to scratch (or you’re just observant), you’ll have worked out that Auf/Ab means Up/Down and that this is a power reserve read out, showing off the 72 hour power reserve. Aside from adding balance to the dial, the inclusion of the power reserve indicator again harks back to the time when this sort of watch was a critical tool, and knowing when it was about to stop telling the time was serious business.

These days it’s less crucial, but there’s no doubt the 1815 Up/Down looks the business – it’s a serious, sober watch, the sort of timepiece the mountains of Saxony have been producing for centuries. There’s no reason you couldn’t dress it down a little, but to really make that pink gold case shine, wear it with a suit.

Exclusive (for now) to cheap replica A. Lange & Söhne, honey gold is a gold alloy that’s a cross between pink and yellow gold, with the useful properties of being shinier and harder than ordinary 18k gold. Having been used recently on two limited editions, the 1815 “200th Anniversary F. A. Lange” and little known Lange 1 Honey Gold, honey gold returns once again with the Lange 1 Time Zone Honey Gold – perhaps for the last time?

The key differentiating factor of the new limited edition is the case material. At 41.9mm in diameter the honey gold edition is identically sized as the ordinary Lange 1 Time Zone. To match the case, the markers on the dial and the hands are in honey gold.

Though identical design-wise to the ordinary model, the honey gold Time Zone has minor tweaks on the dial. Most prominent is “Dresden” in the place of Berlin to represent the Central European Time (CET) time zone; Dresden being the capital of the state of Saxony and the closest big city to Lange’s home town of Glashütte.

The dots that separate the city names on the world time ring are dark blue, instead of the usual red, as is the hour track of the second time zone sub-dial, which is black on the ordinary version.

Mechanically the replica A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Time Zone Honey Gold is unchanged, being powered by the hand-wound L031.1 movement featuring twin time zones linked to a cities disc and day or night indicator, a power reserve indicator, and the brand’s signature oversized date display. The pusher at 11 o’clock advances the date display, while the other pusher advances the second time zone in one hour steps.
