  • Catalogue Essay

    The A. Lange & Söhne Datograph Perpetual is arguably one of the most fascinating chronograph perpetual calendar wristwatches produced by a modern manufacture. With a beautiful combination of traditional watchmaking and fine aesthetics, the Datograph Perpetual displays a well-balanced dial layout on the front, and when flipped to the movement side, it displays its in-house manual movement, expertly finished throughout with Glashütte stripes and signature hand-engraved balance cock. The elegant display includes a 60-second counter and a 30-minute counter, as well as indications for the day of the week, month, leap year, and day/night. Additionally, the chronograph integrates a useful flyback function, which is activated with the top chronograph pusher. This white gold A. Lange & Söhne Datograph Perpetual was the first to bear a German silver dial in this dark grey color, a hint of coolness against the subtle warmth of white gold.

    Made in fewer than 100 examples, to the best of our knowledge, this is the first time an example of this reference has been offered publicly. It comes complete with its original box and accessories, and has been overall carefully worn and well-preserved, ready for its new owner.

  • 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.
