I’ve been looking to pick up an 1815 chrono and there’s quite a lot of price variance between generations. I’m certain I want a “pulsations dial”, which I think rules out gen2 (not 100% sure), but there’s a good £7/8k+ difference between gen1 and gen3 which is factoring into my decision making.

I know that the power reserve increased to 60hrs from 36, but is there anything else significant that I would miss out on with a first generation watch?

Thanks in advance for any advice / input!

The newer 1815 chronos (gen 2 and gen 3) also have Lange's in-house balance with weights (vs. a Nivarox balance with screws). Pretty sure that's it. See the "Historic Data" and "Movement" tabs at "http:// goo. gl/vWFC7Q" (remove the space before each of the two g's).

Get the one you like better, taking the cost difference out of the equation. It will be cheaper and bring you more satisfaction in the long run.

Some I think legitimately prefer the original with it’s oddly sized (IMO) sundials. I prefer the more balanced size and placement of sundials and the look of the pulsometric scale better in the gen 3. And the Boutique Ed is the best of the bunch.

Many thanks for this CFR
