Description

Since the re-birth of the brand in 1994, a new model was launched called “Lange 1” with a new feature, the now famous outsized date window, it took inspiration from an early clock designed by Adolf Lange in 1830.
The outsized date and the asymmetric dial arrangement became one of their trademark and the ‘Lange 1’ a classic in their collection.
The other notable members of the family are the “Datograph” model which is considered by many collectors as; one of the best chronographs in the industry and it is indeed hard to argue.

In 2004 the company revealed a ground breaking double rattrapante chronograph called “Double Split” for a very first in watchmaking, this “split-seconds chronograph” is considered to be one of the most difficult complications, it does not only have two seconds counter but as well two minute counters.

Now the present timepiece is a work of art and certainly one of a kind rattrapante; the Double Split 404.035 in platinum, is the world’s first fly back chronograph wristwatch with a double split-seconds  mechanism that allows to measure and calculate intermediate time measurement of up to 30minutes, fitted with four chronograph hands, that are all fly-back hands, two are dedicated to the 30-minute counter (unlike the standard 60 seconds widely available on other brands models).

Our watch is offered here with its full original set, mint condition, available for viewing in Geneva.

 

 

 

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.
