234.026, 1815 Up/Down, White Gold
A ref. 234.026, the second generation 1815 Up/Down in white gold. The 1815 Up/Down is a 39mm design which references Lange’s heritage in a power reserve, one of the earliest patents the brand ever filed in 1879. Due to the reserve indication, where Auf is for Up (or full) and Ab for Down, its dial is perfectly symmetrically balanced, a very harmonious design. It is powered by the finely finished and updated manual Calibre L051.2, which features a longer reserve and (finally) in-house balance spring and wheel. The 1815 Up/Down is a beautifully versatile middle-ground of complication that unites Lange’s current collection with its past very directly.
