A. Lange & Söhne Datograph, 403.035, Platinum


Introduced in 1999, the Datograph is considered by many to be one of the most compelling chronographs ever made. Admired by the like of Philippe Dufour, who owns one himself, its movement took several years to develop, before taking the watchmaking industry by surprise. This example represents the first iteration of the design, with its platinum case, striking black dial and warm subdials.
