  • Catalogue Essay

    In 1999, A. Lange & Söhne introduced their in-house automatic chronograph caliber L951.1 and changed the landscape of modern chronograph engineering with the Datograph Flyback. At the time, it was rare to find a fully in-house automatic chronograph caliber (1999 was the last year of Zenith-based movements for Rolex’s chronograph, the Daytona, before they introduced their in-house caliber 4130 in 2000), much less one with a flyback function. The present Datograph Flyback is of the first generation, in production from 1999 until 2012 when Lange re-designed the Datograph, giving it a larger case and power reserve indicator. Now only produced in white or pink gold, this first series Datograph Flyback cased in platinum with a black dial is the ideal watch for the Lange purist or the connoisseur of modern classics.

  • Artist Biography

    A. Lange & Söhne

    German • 1845

    Originally founded in 1845 by Ferdinand Adolph Lange in Glashütte, Dresden, Germany, the firm established an entire watchmaking culture and industry in Glashütte. The brand quickly became Germany's finest watchmaker, first creating dependable, easy-to-repair watches before going on to produce some of the world's finest complicated pocket watches, including Grande Sonnerie watches, tourbillon watches and Grande Complications.

    On the final day of World War II, their factories were destroyed by Russian bombers, and in 1948 the brand was confiscated by the Soviet Union. Following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1990, Ferdinand's great grandson Walter Lange re-established the brand with the objective to once again produce top-quality luxury watches. Now part of the Richemont Group, its original vintage and modern creations are highly coveted by collectors. Key models from the modern era include the Lange 1, Pour Le Mérite Tourbillon and the Zeitwerk.
