A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Tourbillon Enamel Dial Watch Watch Releases

The tourbillon version of the A. Lange & Söhne 1815 watch introduced four years ago gets updated today with an enamel dial. In a platinum case, the new A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Tourbillon Enamel Dial watch’s most prominent feature is still the large tourbillon on the otherwise elegantly simple face. The white enamel, however, should make the contrast between the dial’s simplicity and the tourbillon’s complexity all the more stark.

We saw the A. Lange & Söhne 1815 Tourbillon hands-on when it was first introduced in 2014. Here, if the enamel dial is the cake’s proverbial icing (and the red number 12 the cherry, perhaps), then the tourbillon is still the filling (does that metaphor work?). This 13.2mm-wide tourbillon completes a rotation each minute (which is common) so it was not such an engineering feat to add a hand to the tourbillon and track around the periphery to make it double as a seconds indication. The tourbillon itself, of course, is massively complicated, and even more so with its stop-seconds and zero-reset features.
