The 1815 Rattrapante features a robust 41.2mm case made from 950 Platinum, with a matching crown and chronograph pushers that operate its settings.. A solid silver chronograph dial design beautifully lays out the multitude of functions, while vibrant Blue Steel hands make it easy for any watch collector to decipher. Supplying power to the 1815 Rattrapante is A. Lange & Söhne’s custom in-house L101.2 manually-wound Rattrapante movement, a 365-part construction made from untreated German silver. The French word ‘Rattrapante’ translates to ‘Catch Up’ in English, meaning that the watch uses two seconds hands to record multiple time intervals at the same time. The complex movement is responsible for the 1815 Rattrapante’s time display with hours and minutes, subsidiary seconds with stop seconds, Rattrapante chronograph with a 30-minute counter, and tachometer scale functions. The full sapphire backcase presents a magnificent view of the movement in action, while the outer case features commemorative engravings that signify the limited 200-piece release from A. Lange & Söhne. Finishing its styling with an elegant touch, A. Lange & Söhne fits the 1815 Rattrapante with a hand-stitched black alligator strap and platinum prong buckle. The all-new A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Rattrapante is currently available through an authorized dealer with a price upon request. Check back into duPont REGISTRY for more upcoming luxury watch news and releases.
