A Lange & Sohne launches the Datograph Up/Down
June 19, 2012: The Loschwitz Bridge over the River Elbe in Dresden, commonly referred to as the ‘Blue Wonder’, is a masterpiece of engineering from Saxony, one of the 16 German states. The bridge has formed a link between the Dresden districts of Loschwitz und Blasewitz since 1893. The 280 metre bridge caused a sensation when it was built. Around 100 years later, A Lange & Sohne launched the Datograph, a chronograph with hitherto unknown precision and aesthetic appeal, to celebrate the engineering feat. The successor to this model is now coming in the market: the Datograph Up/Down.
The appeal of the Datograph Up/Down lies in the new power reserve indication at 6 o’clock, which shows how much of the 60 hour reserve is still available. Instant consecutive time measurements can be performed easily with its ingenious flyback mechanism. The equilateral triangle formed by the big date, minutes hand and small seconds emphasises the aesthetic appeal of the chronograph and guarantees perfect legibility.
