For the first time, the Lange 1815 Tourbillon combines a stop-second device and a zero reset function in the tourbillon. The interaction between these two patented devices makes this new watch’s stop and set functions accurate to the second. The 1815 Tourbillon is designed for extremely precise time functions-when the crown is pulled out, the balance wheel in the tourbillon frame will immediately stop and the second hand will jump to the zero position. In this convenient and quick way, the watch can be synchronized with another reference watch or time signal. Its minimalist design ensures that all displays are legible, and of the complex mechanics of the entire watch, only the tourbillon is visible. The tourbillon has a diameter of 13.2 mm, an increase of about 1 mm compared to earlier models. The axis of the one-minute tourbillon is accompanied by a small blue-steel seconds hand, and the combination of Arabic numerals and classic train track minute scales is reminiscent of the long-standing Lange pocket watch.
