Since 2011, German watch brand A. Lange & Sohne has been introducing an exclusive series of watches with artistic dials and top-notch craftsmanship in a collection it calls the "Handwerkskunst." This year, the newest 2017 Handwerkskunst is a delight both inside and outside. With a celestial theme, the 1815 Rattrapante Perpetual Calendar Handwerkskunst watch features a dial of blue enamel and white gold stars created in relief engraving.

The watch offers rattrapante or flyback chronograph functions for timing multiple events. It also boasts perpetual calendar functions, including day, date (no matter the length of the month), month, leap year indication and moon phase indication — accurate for 122.6 years.

The moon-and-stars theme from the dial carries over to the half-hunter case back, where an image of the Goddess Luna is engraved on a white gold medallion surrounded by blue enamel. Open the hunter case back and, via a sapphire crystal, one can view the meticulously finished movement, which has starry night motif.

The watch is powered by the 631-part movement, manufacture caliber L101.1 with 42 hours of power reserve. The 41.9mm white gold 1815 Rattrapante Perpetual Calendar Handwerkskunst is created in a limited edition of just 20 pieces. We have an incredible selection of A. Lange & Sohne watches and invite you in any time to take a look at fine German watchmaking.
