  • Catalogue Essay

    Introduced at the SIHH 2006, the Datograph Perpetual was A. Lange & Söhne’s first of its kind, featuring a perpetual calendar with a flyback chronograph function. With supreme elegance the dial displays a 60-second counter and a 30-second counter tracked by two beautifully finished blued steel hands matching harmoniously with the hue of the moon phase. Furthermore, it features the iconic large date display with indications of the day of the week, month, leap year as well as day/night. The Datograph Perpetual in platinum was discontinued in 2011, with only very few examples to have appeared in the market since.

    Turning the watch over, the in-house cal. L925.1 is displayed through a sapphire crystal caseback revealing its delicate hand-finished components comprised of 556 individual parts. The hand-finished components are executed to the highest level displaying its signature “Glashütte” waves throughout the bridges and plates, whilst the balance cock retains its opulent engraving.

    The present example in platinum is offered in excellent overall condition with very minimal signs of use and wear. Adding to the attraction it is accompanied by the full set of accessories.

  • 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.
