Description

A contemporary ode to history

The roots of this splendid timepiece date back to 1816. The mechanism was invented by Louis Moinet as an innovative chronograph, even back in the day. After being passed from one watch house to the next, the chronograph was finally perfected by Lange & Söhne, and now we have the fascinating 404.032 Double Split in pink gold.

 

The present reference is the A.Lange & Sohne Double Split 404.032, it was brought into the market in 2010, the watch is created from pure silver and adorned with spellbinding gold hour markers and accents. Not as baroque as its older counterparts, the lines are far more defined and it doesn’t use Roman Numerals, making the overall appeal highly contemporary. Its case is fully polished, all the way from the lugs, resulting in a serene and calming creation. The case is measured at 43.2mm and the height is 15.3mm. The Calibre is L 001.1 with an impressive 40 jewels.

Its hands are crafted from pink gold steel with blued steel, keeping it protected against rust. Both the hour and minute hands, and the beautiful markers at 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock, boast whimsical luminosity. Meanwhile, the dial is a visual feast and includes a power reserve indication and a 30-minutes counter.

 

 

A.Lange & Sohne – bio

Founded in 1845 by Ferdinand Adolph Lange in Glashütte, Germany.  The company soon became the pioneers in watchmaking in their region.  After Ferdinand’s death his sons, Emil and Richard continued to produce the finest pocket watches of their time.
During World War II, they were victims of bombardments and eventually even got nationalised by the Soviet administration and ceased to exist. At the fall of the Berlin wall in 1990, the grand son of the founder, Walter Lange, revived the company with the help of Swiss watch manufacturers such as IWC & Jaeger-LeCoultre.   The brand introduced their new collection in 1994 with success and by 2000 the company got acquired by the Richemont Group.
