Every time a different sports season or event ends, we are reminded of the challenges given to the human body and spirit. Athletes push their body beyond the limits while sports enthusiasts marvel at the capabilities these gifted human beings show the world. However, all these are possible only if we simultaneously develop the technology to measure how far the human body can go beyond its limit.
The innovation and perfection of this technology is exactly what A. Lange & Sohne envisions for the world. Proof of their success is revealed in the masterpiece?A. Lange & Sohne 403.035, that is the DATOGRAPH. It is the first chronograph that uses the classic column wheel principle with flyback technology, jumping minute counter, and outsized date. This timepiece is powered by the caliber L951.1 manual movement inside a 39 mm platinum case.
The Datograph is the perfect timepiece to measure performance in sports since it has the ability to stop events that can last as long as 30 minutes with an accuracy of one-fifth of a second. It is likewise equipped with a jumping minute counter for precision. The flyback feature provides instantaneous reset to zero even during an ongoing event with a push of a button and a new timing cycle can commence. With this feature, there is no need to stop measuring and reset the stop hand before a new event can be measured.
Despite its complication, A. Lange & Sohne saw fit to make the Datograph an aesthetic wonder with its solid silver dial in black/argent? and rhodium gold/blued steel hands. To showcase the technology that powers the watch, it comes with a sapphire crystal glass and caseback. The German watchmaker has proven time and again that it can match the quality, beauty, and technology of its popular Swiss competitors. The Datograph is truly a masterpiece of innovation and a work of art that horology can absolutely claim one of the finest in the industry.
