A. Lange & Söhne presents a new DATOGRAPH PERPETUAL watch featuring a white gold case and solid silver grey dial.
The A. Lange & Söhne DATOGRAPH is one of the most admired mechanical chronographs ever produced. In 1999, the world’s first ever column-wheel chronograph with a flyback function, precisely jumping minute counter and outsize-date display caused quite a sensation in professional circles. It has long since achieved cult status. It is not only the technical finesse that is unique, but also the harmonious integration of function and aesthetics.
Launched in 2006, DATOGRAPH PERPETUAL combines a flyback chronograph and a perpetual calendar, which will not require correction until 2100. If this does ever become necessary, however, the calendar indicators can be advanced either individually or synchronously.
Lange’s passion for precision is also reflected by the universal corrector specially designed for this job: To prevent the indications from being inadvertently changed, the push piece at 10 o’clock can only be pressed when the crown is pulled out.
The argenté-coloured subsidiary dials and deep-blue moon disc on the new DATOGRAPH PERPETUAL white-gold model (reference 410.038) stand out particularly clearly thanks to the dial’s subtle grey background.
The movement powering the A. Lange & Söhne DATOGRAPH PERPETUAL is the manual-wound L952.1 calibre with a power reserve of 36 hours.
