On the wrist, the new 1815 looks and feels absolutely fantastic.  With the two registers, there is enough going on with this dial to treat it as something more than a classic dress watch, and that’s a great thing.  At just 8.7mm thick, the 1815 can fit easily under absolutely any cuff easily.  The increased power reserve, larger case size, and cleaner dial are all absolutely welcomed changes from the original 1815 Up/Down and I think this watch will have a lot of appeal to both collectors and perhaps even more importantly, first time Lange buyers.  It is not the least expensive Lange, but I think it it is, along with the Richard Lange, perhaps the most interesting watch they make under $30,000.  That is to say, I really like this watch.
