A. Lange & Söhne - Datograph
The Datograph holds the distinction of being the first ever chronograph to be based on the classic column-wheel principle with flyback.
A watch from A. Lange & Söhne is a highly coveted luxury timepiece in elite circles of successful businessmen and wealthy aristocrats. Like the rest of the luxury watches made by A. Lange & Söhne, the Datograph features a mechanical movement, instead of the lower quality quartz movement employed by many watchmakers today.
Made by German artisans since 1854, these highly coveted watches are easily identifiable by their unique design elements. Each is hand made with 18K rose gold, platinum, or a combination of the two for a unique visual effect, and is designed as an heirloom piece of jewelry. Like many other A. Lange & Söhne luxury timepieces, this watch is available with both a metal bracelet, made from precious metals, as well as a leather strap. The leather strap, in an attractive saddle colour, is made from highly coveted and luxurious alligator skin. These magnificent luxury watches are made to last many years, and as a result are often passed down from father to son with a great deal of sentiment and pride.
The Datograph holds the distinction of being the first ever chronograph to be based on the classic column-wheel principle with flyback. This luxury timepiece has a precisely jumping minute counter and a stylish patented outsize date display. No detail has been overlooked in the design of each luxury timepiece, no matter how tiny, which means that a finished luxury watch from A. Lange & Söhne is a unique and elegant representation of luxury, sophistication, and success. It is an understated yet highly recognizable symbol that one has arrived in the world. Never over the top, this is the sort of symbol that other successful men and women note with a nod of appreciation for someone who is successful enough to be tasteful.
The Datagraph, like many luxury timepieces, includes a variety of useful dials within the sleek case. The busy scion has little time for extra gadgets, and appreciates the ready availability of this luxury watch's calendar. Unlike the cheap imitations that have popped up in recent decades, this watch remains sleek and sophisticated even while providing information to its wearer.
