A Lange & Söhne 1815 Rattrapante

Back in 2020 was when A Lange & Söhne first debuted the “1815 Rattrapante” in their own proprietary Honeygold and a very limited release of only 100 pieces. But most importantly and historically that was the brand's first ever rattrapante chronograph, also known as split-seconds or Doppel chronograph. This is one of the most impressive complications in watches because it can include two distinct stopwatch mechanisms that can measure two separate events simultaneously to follow and compare.

The round 41.2mm case is made of 950 platinum with brushed casebands and polished accents. While mounted by a dome shaped platinum bezel with a high near mirror-like polished finish. This particular case is designed in a very robust and classical manner. As we gaze at the shine of the bezel, it leads to the equally proportioned lugs in their own arched polish.On the flip-side is a sapphire exhibition caseback that allows a view into the inner workings of the mechanical movement. It comes equipped with two wide rectangular pushers to operate the rattrapante chronograph with 30-minute counter functions. While on the opposite side of the case we have the essential pusher that splits the chronograph function, conveniently placed at 10 o’clock.It comes equipped with a large machine knurled crown embossed by A Lange & Söhne. The extra width of the crown allows for an easier hand-wind as the user’s experience grows in wear. All topped by a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides. Water-resistance can reach up to 30 meters (98 feet).Time is exhibited on a solid silver dial with black printed Arabic numerals, followed by a rail-road motif ring of minute index markers, while circling out further on the flange is a tachymeter scale. The silver hue has a matte finish with a very light argenté finish that makes its own tone.There are two sub-dials: a 30-minute counter for the chronograph on the upper half, and a small-seconds on the lower-half. Plus if we use in conjunction with the additional hands and markers, this watch becomes capable of using two distinct stopwatch mechanisms in order to measure two separate events as they occur concurrently, or sequentially for comparison.In essence this design is exemplary of the brand's core aesthetics throughout many of their models in various collections.A bright silver hue which combined with the dark numerals results in a prominent black & white effect, while a subtle nuance is added in the form of central blued steel hands. This model even has very discreet red colored quarter markers on the railroad minute track. Plus the central rattrapante hand is rhodium-plated, yet one more addition to the overall color palette.
