More about 1815 Moonphase Honey Gold Hommage to FA Lange

This is an extremely rare and complicated A. Lange & Sohne 1815 Moonphase Homage to F.A. Lange 212.050. It has an alligator leather strap with an 18K honey gold tang buckle, and a scratch resistant sapphire crystal. The 37.5mm diameter solid three-body case, downturned lugs, and flat slightly rounded bezel, are polished.The dial is solid silver with a fine sunburst guilloche texture in the center, with black Arabic numerals and blued hands. It has a recessed indigo moonphase subdial with silver stars, located at 8 o'clock. and there is a running small seconds indicator at 4 o'clock. Around the perimeter is a black railroad-style minute scale. The moon-phase complication on this watch is rather incredible all on its own. The indication only needs to be adjusted by one day every 1058 years as long as the power isn't interrupted and the watch remains set to the correct time. The Lange & Sohne engineers invented a moonphase train that supersedes the traditional approximation of a 29.5-day lunar month, using a far more accurate, synodic month of 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes, and 3 seconds. The case back is a transparent sapphire crystal for viewing the mechanism and there is a 45-hour power reserve. It's water resistant to 30 meters/100 feet, and the 9.5mm thick case, dial, and movement are signed. This A. Lange & Sohne 1815 Moonphase Homage to F.A. Lange 212.050 has a mechanical manual winding ALS caliber L943.2 movement. It's constructed with 26 jewels, 220 components, and the Balance Cock is made of the same 18K honey gold as the case, and with intricate hand engraving. Walter Lange introduced the A. Lange & Sohne 1815 Moonphase Homage to F.A. Lange 212.050 in 2010, in a limited edition of only 265 examples. It was created in honor of his great grandfather, Ferdinand Adolph Lange, who founded the company in 1845. 2010 marked the 165th anniversary of the company; the homage year of 1815 was the year of Adolph Lange's birth. The case material for this watch and only two other models is made of a special gold alloy developed exclusively for Lange called 18K "Honey Gold. It's a subtle tone between yellow and white gold, but with a hardness on the Vickers scale of over 300, making it twice as durable and scratch resistant as other gold alloys.

I have been dealing with European Watch Company for over ten years, and have purchased several wrist watches, including IWC, Patek Philippe, Rolex, and Jaeger-LeCoultre. They were not only fairly priced but arrived in like-new condition, fully warranted by European Watch Company. This company has an attentive, knowledgeable staff, a large inventory, and is a genuine pleasure to deal with.

Just completed my 7th transaction with EWC and for the 7th time the transaction was smooth, flawless and quick. Joshua is quick to respond to any e-mails and answer any questions. Ashley knows how to complete the necessary paperwork to avoid any delays at Customs as I am located in Canada and all paperwork needs to be completed perfectly which she is an expert at. You only want to deal with the best and the team at EWC is the best. There is a Yiddish word to describe the people at EWC and that word is mensches which translates to people of integrity and honour.

After a lengthy search I located the Patek Philippe I desired at EWC, but the decision to make a high dollar purchase over the internet was a difficult one. Through numerous emails with Justin and looking at reviews of EWC I made the decision to proceed and I am now ECSTATIC. The watch is exactly as described and pictured. It was perfectly packaged and shipped FedEx overnight. My watch collection now includes the watch I have been seeking for over a year.In summary, you can deal with the EWC staff with confidence. They are professional, honest and you will receive a quality watch which will put a smile on your face.

I live in San Francisco but the EWC website is the first place I check once I get an impulse for a particular watch. EWC's website is cozy and feels like home. I enjoy the photos, presentation, description and historical notes of each item and really like their next day delivery, so I stay loyal to them. Sometimes I must wait awhile for a watch to become available but can usually find anything I want. Then there are the watches you never knew you wanted until you see them here.

Dear EWC, I have just completed my very first purchase with your company: a mint Lange Datograph. Robert was extremely help throughout the process with the item delivered nicely packed to my Hong Kong address within days. The condition of the watch was absolutely mint as described and has exceeded my expectations, even under a loupe! I will be a return customer in no time. Well done!
