This watch is an 1815 - a collection named in homage to Ferdinand Adolph Lange's year of birth. It is in a Limited Edition of 50 examples, and is the only A. Lange & Sohne timepiece signed by Walter Lange, the fourth generation great-grandson who essentially reinvigorated the business after World War II, and again in 1990. It's dedicated to his great-grandfather, founder, Ferdinand Adolph Lange.
