Additional Info:   For more than a decade, A. Lange & Söhne’s Datograph was considered by many to be the quintessential chronograph. On the one hand, it was because of its technical features, on the other because of the unparalleled harmony of its dial. With a number of enhancements, Lange’s engineers are now proving that excellence can be taken a step further. With a power reserve extended to 60 hours, a power-reserve indicator, and a proprietary oscillation system, the new Datograph Up/Down shines in a platinum case enlarged to a diameter of 41 millimeters.

When it was first presented in 1999, the A. Lange & Söhne Datograph already attracted global attention. With its sophisticated technology and subtly balanced design, it clearly stood out from the masses of timepieces with stopwatch functions. The classic column-wheel calibre with a precisely jumping minute counter and flyback function united the cardinal virtues of an exemplary chronograph in a movement of peerless mechanical eloquence and aesthetic appeal. These internal assets were complemented on the outside by the harmony of the dial ensemble: forming an equilateral triangle, the Lange outsize date and the two bright subsidiary dials for the seconds and the minute counter contrasted well against the black dial, assuring superb legibility.

The new Datograph Up/Down embodies all these features as well. Additionally, Lange’s engineers and product designers worked intensely to refine it further. What meets the eye first is the larger case. With a diameter increased to 41 millimetres, this timepiece gains extra prominence on the wrist. Rhodiumed gold baton hour markers on the dial – they also replace the former Roman numerals II, VI, and X – emphasize its clear design and identify the watch as a member of the Saxonia family that was just revised last year. A small detail is typical of the perfectionism pursued at Lange: The aperture of the date display was adjusted to match the bigger size of the case. It was enlarged by four percent to preserve the balanced proportions of the dial architecture. The designation “Up/Down” in its name refers to an additional function: A power-reserve indicator at 6 o’clock reliably tells the owner how much of the extended 60-hour running time remains available. Only when the hand enters the red zone on the third day will it be necessary to supply the calibre L951.6 movement with fresh energy. The 24 extra power-reserve hours versus the previous model were achieved mainly with a larger mainspring barrel. The large balance developed by Lange and crafted in-house has six eccentric poising weights that can be very precisely adjusted to fine-tune its rate accuracy. It is powered by a balance spring, also developed and crafted on site by Lange. To assure optimised rate values at its classical frequency of 18,000 semi-oscillations per hour, the spring is scrupulously matched to the characteristic of the movement.

* If shown above, Bracelet OR Strap lengths are measured to include the watch case and represent the MAXIMUM possible strap length.

Gemnation provides FREE bracelet resizing before shipment. If you know the size of the wearer's wrist, please let us know in the 'Special Request' section at the time of checkout and we will size the watch appropriately. Removed links WILL BE SENT WITH THE WATCH. Sizing is not an exact science; bracelet links vary in size and removing too many links or too few links may make the fit too small or too big. We therefore cannot guarantee the length of the bracelet or that it will be equivalent to the specified length. As a result, many of our customers take their watches to a QUALIFIED watchmaker to do the sizing with their watch in hand; expect to pay in the region of $5 - $25 for this service.

Watch bracelets that Gemnation resizes are still returnable. Unfortunately if an outside party is utilized to resize the strap, we can no longer accept the watch for return or exchange. Unforeseen circumstances may prevent us from resizing the watch bracelet. If this is the case, we will notify you before shipping the watch. Sizing requests are usually completed within 24-48 hours. If overnight shipping is selected in addition to bracelet sizing, please allow for additional time, or contact us beforehand to provide us with sufficient time to accommodate your request.

Please print our WATCH BRACELET SIZER to assist you with finding the correct bracelet size.

About A Lange & Sohne
A. Lange & Söhne was first established in 1845 by Adolph Lange in Glasshutte. The firm established itself as makers of distinctive and fine timepieces - its pocket watches were prized by European gentry. Following the Second World War, the Lange factory was seized by what was then East Germany. Walter Lange, the company's heir fled. It was only after the German reunification in 1990, that the founder's great grandson, Walter Lange, began reviving the company. With funding from LMH, the newly reformed company set out to restore its fine watchmaking tradition. The company was sold to the luxury conglomerate Richemont in July 2000. Although its watch parts may be cut with exceptional precision by the most advanced computer-aided machine tools, they are still finished, decorated and engraved by the skilled hands of some of the world's finest watchmakers.

In 1994, Lange debuted what is perhaps its most iconic watch, the Lange 1 together with the Saxonia, Arkade and Tourbillon Pour le Merite series. The Lange 1 features an off-center hour and minutes dial, a sub-seconds dial and a large date. In 1997, Lange Uhren GmbH presents the Langematik to the world, impressing the watch cognoscenti. 1999 brings the Datograph to Lange's growing adherents. It sets new standards in watch finishing and timekeeping. In 2007, A Lange & Sohne presents the Lange 31, a watch featuring a 31-day power reserve with constant power output.
