A wonderful review indeed. Thanks Alex and Alberto!

March 14 2005, 7:37 PM 

I can't agree more with most of Alberto's counterpoints, especially the ones on the sub coutner dial positions and the printings on the dial. Besides all the points mentioned in the article, personally I like the 950.1/951.1 movements because they also manage to preseve the 3/4 plate movement layout, which is in line with the early chronograph movements by Lange. The only criticism I have for this particular movement is its rather low power reserve, but otherwise I fully agree that this is certainly one of the best dress chronographs ever made. I would go for a rose gold Datograph with an opaline dial if Lange ever decides to come out with such a combination, but until that day comes I will keep saving (as we all know this watch is a bit pricey afterall). Thanks again for your great efforts.

P.S. Is Lange's white gold cases also rhodium plated? It appears to me that the inner part of one of the lugs is already blackened (thanks to Alberto's stunning photos!).

Cheers,

Roger

Lange uses a high palladium content in its white gold cases and therefore

does not rhodium plate the WG cases.

Beautiful! Thanks for the hard work. You've only made me...

...undecided between this one and the Datograph. I remember handling a RG version of the 1815 chrono in Paris last year with Alex and Felipe, but it didn't sing to me at all. I suspect the WG version might well do though...

Have to agree with you

I also had a chance to handle the RG version of 1815 Chron but It did not make my heart sing. But I think WG might do it.
