A. Lange & Söhne is adding two pink-gold models to the successful 1815 Chronograph family. Endowed with column-wheel control, a flyback function and a pulsometer scale, they are available with black- or argenté-coloured dials.

The 1815 Chronograph is the perfect choice for those in search of a technical stopwatch that is reduced to its essential functions. The slender chronograph sweep seconds hand is activated with a pusher at 2 o’clock. It indicates the time with a resolution of one-fifth of a second. The flyback function allows instant consecutive measurements: when the pusher at 4 o’clock is pressed, the chronograph’s seconds- and minute-counter hands jump to zero and then immediately restart to take a new measurement.

The peripheral pulsometer scale is reminiscent of a classic pocket watch function; it is used for heart rate measurements. This measures the time it takes to count 30 heartbeats. On the scale graduated from 40 to 200 beats, the chronograph sweep seconds hand indicates the heart rate in beats per minute. Arabic numerals and the railway-track minute scale are hallmarks of the 1815 watch family that has combined classic design and mechanical ingenuity since 1995. The symmetrically arranged subsidiary dials for the minute counter at 4 o’clock and the subsidiary seconds dial at 8 o’clock emphasise the balanced character of the timepiece. Two solid-gold push pieces with defined trigger points control the chronograph including the flyback function.
