A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Rattrapante Honeygold “Homage to F. A. Lange”

You might remember the A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Rattrapante Honeygold “Homage to F. A. Lange” from when Jorg wrote about it in his grail-watch article. And this is just the kind of watch you think of when thinking of a grail. It’s not just an absolutely stunning chronograph, but it’s also a pricey number. Exclusive for sure, but for what the watch offers, and everything that goes into making it possible, it’s no wonder that it will set 100 lucky owners back €132,000. Despite its price, one quickly gets familiar with its special weight on the wrist, and exclusivity aside, the watch is just as good for special occasions as it is for everyday wear.

The watch is not just a beautiful work of mathematically perfect design. It’s also a capable timekeeper and a chronograph with a rattrapante function. As with all watches from A. Lange & Söhne, on the backside, you will be greeted by a movement that is in itself a true masterpiece and a sight to behold. The 1815 Rattrapante is executed in Lange’s own proprietary Honeygold, a material similar to yellow gold, but a little bit paler. Like honey on the wrist, wearing this very special Glashütte creation leaves quite an impression. But don’t let me spoil it all for you. Here’s RJ to tell you all about the watch.
