At the Watches & Wonders 2020 Shanghai show, which starts today (September 9th), A. Lange & Söhne will present three limited edition 1815 models that come in Lange’s proprietary 18K Honeygold cases with special movement decorations and dial dedicated to Ferdinand Adolph Lange, who founded the original company 175 years ago in Glashütte. Limited to 175 pieces, the 1815 Thin Honeygold is a timelessly elegant two-hand watch with a white enamel dial inspired by Lange pocket watches and is limited to 175 pieces. The 1815 Rattrapante Honeygold is limited to 100 pieces. The Tourbrograph Perpetual Honeygold is the most complicated of three and is the first Lange watch with a Honeygold dial, limited to 50 pieces.
