Understatement?

Since 2006 the name  Datograph Perpetual has stood for the ingenious combination of a flyback-chronograph and with a perpetual calendar. Ten years on, this fascinating timepiece is now available with an added tourbillon – although at first glance, the only clue is in the name on the dial. That is because the tourbillon can only be seen by looking through the sapphire-crystal caseback.

German watchmaking at its very best?

For the watchmakers, integrating this outstanding mechanism into this timepiece it was a much more challenging task than might be expected. That is because the 729-part calibre L952.2 movement was not simply constructed module by module. Instead, A. Lange & Söhne decided on a more elegant but more complicated solution: within the movement, which was rebuilt from scratch, the three complications that give the watch its name were all connected to form an integrated whole.

The chronograph is equipped with a column-wheel mechanism, a precise jumping minute counter and a flyback-function. The jumping perpetual calendar is paired with a moon-phase display and a Lange outsize date. And a glance through the sapphire-crystal caseback into the movement – hand-decorated in accordance with the highest watchmaking standards – makes it clear how the chronograph mechanism was arranged around the tourbillon. Thanks to the patented stop-seconds mechanism, the balance wheel is momentarily brought to a standstill when the crown is pulled, so that the watch can be set with one-second accuracy.
