For this year’s Watches & Wonders Replica A. Lange & Sohne , the German masters of high-end horology, have released boutique only version of their 1815 chronograph replica watch featuring a silver dial with blue markings and an elegant pulsometer scale.
The a lange sohne 1815 replica watch – along with the telemeter – is one of the more uncommon types of chronograph scale. It’s far more usual to see a chronograph with a tachymeter, as measuring speed over distance is a more common application than measuring the heart rate or distance from a sound.The tachymeter scale has been so normalised on the dials of watches that the mere inclusion of one of these more esoteric scales firmly places the watch into the ‘heritage revival’ category. But bear in mind Lange replica watch don’t release watches based on trends – their clean style and peerless technical capacity means they’re much more likely to be setting them.
Having said that, this new replica a lange sohne 1815 chronograph watch does reference the past – though only its own. While the 39.5mm white gold case, the dial takes its cue from the original model, which featured the pulsometer scale. From our perspective the return of the pulsometer is a welcome one – it doesn’t clutter the dial and adds warm personality to an otherwise quite formal watch.This edition of the 1815 Chronograph replica watch is a limited production piece.
