The chronograph from the Lange house
The Datograph is a favourite among enthusiasts of refined watchmaking. When the watch was first presented at Baselworld in 1999, it caused a sensation and quickly earned the title of a modern classic timepiece.
The standout feature of the Datograph is the unification of a sophisticated chronograph with a flyback function, a jumping minute counter, an outsize date, as well as day of week, month, and leap year indications. The flyback function allows the chronograph to be reset quickly, and therefore, allows the wearer of the watch to accurately measure the duration of time. The interaction of the various complications within a single timepiece is an unmistakable signature of A. Lange & Söhne. The first chronographs from the Datograph collection are equipped with an in-house hand-wound movement that convinces with innovative mechanics. The successor models and special editions are also fitted with manufacture movements that A. Lange & Söhne has come to be known for. The Manufactory is celebrated for carrying out an extensive vertical integration system and manufacturing their movements from start to finish in their Glashütte workshop.
The classic A. Lange & Söhne Datograph model is available in platinum or pink gold. The dial of the watch is composed of a dark grey or silver black and is fitted with Roman numerals. The lance hands are rhodium plated or polished rose gold. The hour and minute hands are coated with Superluminova, ensuring that the dial is always legible, even in low light conditions.
