Return To Tradition Tasting The Lange Millennium Moon Phase Watch

In order to reflect the differentiation of the brand’s symbolic DNA, each watch brand also pursues its own uniqueness in the performance of the moon phase function, with diverse and colorful methods. But personally, I think that more traditional watches can still win more people’s favor. Today, this is the three complicated function watches introduced by Lange to commemorate the 165th anniversary of the brand. One of the 1815 moon phase tables. Official model: 212.050

 Unlike the traditional moon phase watch, which beats once a day, Lange’s 1815 moon phase watch uses a set of gears with a special transmission ratio. It will slowly pull the moon phase disk under the drive of springs. Each lunar month The error is only 6.61 seconds. After 1058 years of accumulation, the cumulative error will reach 24 hours. Therefore, the 33-month slower error caused by traditional moon phase technology is eliminated, which is a veritable ‘Millennium Moon Phase’.

 The design of the watch strictly follows the German style. The case diameter is 37.4 mm and the material is gold. Can be described as extraordinary. The highly polished satin finish also adds another soft luster to the watch, which is particularly attractive.

 This 1815 moon phase watch is a limited edition of 265 watches. The thickness is not as heavy as expected. On the contrary, if you really wear it on your hand, you will feel a proper and safe sense of weight.

 In the design of the dial, it still retains the characteristics of the ‘Dipper and Moon Phase’ logo, which is why collectors are vying to compete for this watch.

 Lange’s elaborate honey gold case and radial silver guilloché pattern on the dial add a lot of fun to the whole, and the simple black track-type scale is also clear on the reading.

 The small seconds dial and center hand between 3 o’clock and 4 o’clock use the classic blue steel hands. The sharp and angular design makes the whole more special style.

 In fact, the moon phase design of this watch is very traditional, but in fact it is a lot of articles. Unlike the traditional moon phase watch that beats once a day, Lange’s 1815 moon phase watch uses a set of special The gear of the transmission ratio will be slowly driven by the spring, and the error of each positive month is only 6.61 seconds. After 1058 years of accumulation, the cumulative error will reach 24 hours. Therefore, the 33-month slower error caused by traditional moon phase technology is eliminated, which is a veritable ‘Millennium Moon Phase’.

 The watch uses a sapphire crystal bottom. If such a watch cannot see the movement, it must be a serious loss. The watch is equipped with a Lange Cal.L943.2 hand-wound movement with a power reserve of 45 hours and a visual impact.

 Of course, the clasp is still familiar to many Lange fans, and some say it is the best endorsement of elegance.

Summary: Compared to the current design of many moon phase watches, ‘Swords Go Awkward’, this returning traditional Lange moon phase is especially kind and has a fatal appeal. Of course, the price of RMB 204,000 is indeed prohibitive for many people, but I always believe that this kind of artwork is the same as the feelings of life. It is not necessarily the best that we have, as long as we can appreciate the mystery and Enjoying this is no small satisfaction.
