Entry-level and A. Lange & Söhne doesn’t really go together. But the A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Annual Calendar is the new entry-level full calendar watch from the German brand.
The 1815 Annual Calendar is the second Lange timepiece with the calendar function. This first one was the self-winding Saxonia Annual Calendar with outsize date from 2010. The A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Annual Calendar is hand-wound and has the same design ques as the other watches in the 1815 family.
The classic looks also work because of the extreme slender calendar module. It is only 1.4 millimeter thick and the reason why the entire case is so slim. Which is available in either pink or white gold.

For the layman among us, a quick explanation of what you can admire on the dial. First of the moon phase at 6 o’clock, calculated to remain accurate for 122.6 years. The calendar indications are easily legible thanks to the golden hands of the two sub-dials. On the left, they display the day and on the right the month. From March to January, all month durations are correctly indicated.
Although it is shorter, the mechanism treats February as a 30-day month, so on the 1st of March, a manual correction must be performed. A pusher at 2 o’clock makes it possible to collectively advance all indications.
The A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Annual Calendar will be available at retailers and Lange-boutiques around the world from fall 2017. More watches in the same price range can be found here.
