The art of watchmaking

For several generations, the watchmakers of A. Lange & Söhne have pursued one goal: to craft timepieces that represent the pinnacle of international watchmaking artistry. At its Glashütte manufacture, the Maison crafts only a few thousand wristwatches per year, each endowed exclusively with proprietary movements that are lavishly decorated and twice assembled by hand. With 69 manufacture calibres developed since 1990, Lange has secured a top-tier position among the world’s finest watch Maisons.

Introduced in 2013, the Grand Complication represents the drive of traditional watchmaking to ever-new heights. The sporty yet elegant Odysseus, introduced in 2019, marked the start of a new chapter.

Celebrating the DATOGRAPH

To mark the 25th anniversary of the DATOGRAPH, A. Lange & Söhne introduces two new masterpieces at Watches and Wonders 2024.

The DATOGRAPH PERPETUAL TOURBILLON HONEYGOLD “Lumen” is a lustrous new interpretation of the sophisticated timepiece, exhibiting distinctive aesthetics even in the dark. In parallel, the DATOGRAPH UP/DOWN shines in white gold with a blue dial.

  • The tourbillon, the third complication in our DATOGRAPH PERPETUAL TOURBILLON HONEYGOLD “Lumen”, is also equipped with a special additional function: the stop-seconds mechanism.  

This additional function makes it possible to stop the tourbillon at will and set the watch to one-second accuracy. However, it confronted our watchmakers with major challenges, as 68 parts have to be accommodated in a tiny carriage and then adjusted.

  • The second classic complication implemented in our DATOGRAPH PERPETUAL TOURBILLON HONEYGOLD “Lumen” is the perpetual calendar.

In addition to a common perpetual calendar, this one comes with jumping displays and the typical Lange outsize date. Furthermore, all calendar displays can be advanced collectively or individually with correctors. Of course, this also poses a number of challenges for our watchmakers. For example, it is very complicated to set the precise jumping time of all the displays at exactly midnight at the same time.

  • With our latest debut, the DATOGRAPH PERPETUAL TOURBILLON HONEYGOLD “Lumen”, we are celebrating the 25th anniversary of the DATOGRAPH. The new timepiece combines three classic complications. They are equipped with further, elaborate additional functions that are rarely or even only realised by our manufacture.  

One of these complications is the chronograph, which is additionally equipped with a flyback function and an exact jumping minute counter. To ensure smooth interaction between the many components involved, all the levers and springs of the mechanisms must be perfectly coordinated.
