  • Catalogue Essay

    In 2018, A. Lange & Söhne once again sets the bar even higher at SIHH with its debut of the mind-blowing A. Lange & Söhne Triple Split ref. 424.038. Paired with a white gold case sized at 43.2mm, the Triple Split with a slate grey dial was made in a limited edition of 100 pieces only.

    The Triple Split introduces a new dimension of measuring time. A world’s first, yet again while breaking their own house record, the mechanical split-seconds chronograph that allows time measurements for seconds, minutes and now, hours which last up to 12 hours. Thus, the Triple Split can now precisely measure and compare multi-hour single and additive times, an unlimited number of intermediate times, reference times, and two concurrently started events to an accuracy of one-sixth of a second. All these information cleverly indicated by the blued hands that stands out with clear legibility on the dial.

    The ground-breaking caliber that enables this innovation is the L132.1 extended to 567 components with 55 hours of power reserve for this beast. A press on the rattrapante pusher at 2 o’ clock will start the wonders of this marvellous chronograph, the flyback pusher at 4 o’clock can reset the timing.

    The present well-preserved A. Lange & Söhne Triple Split is numbered 75 from the limited edition of 100 pieces. Hitting all time high in the innovation scale, this impressive creation can be used to time Verstappen against Hamilton at the Grand prix, a marathon, or simply a long haul flight. For those who seek for the extraordinary, the present timepiece is surely up to par.

  • 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.
