A Lange and Sohne Double Split: Another wrist shot.

Sep 14, 2021,16:03 PM

I will have to write something about the Double Split, but in the meantime, here is a quick wrist shot I took before giving the watch back to its lucky owner, our dear Justin. 

But I am sure you could guess the owner from the strap... wink

Which one do you like better dato chrono or doublesplit or triple split?

Dato first generation.

Not a friend of any kind of panda dial

But otherwise a nice timepiece. Looking forward to your report

Beauty 😀

Beautiful picture, looking forward to your report. How is the wrist impression especially compared to original dato? Would love also to see the three dimensional city on the back 😉 Looking forward to your post, thanks for making us dream! Jérôme Ps: Quart...

The original Dato had indeed this very special form-factor; I found it nearly too top heavy on my wrist (due to the more narrower basis) but on the other hand, this made it special too; and also it was ideal in terms of diameter. I guess what I’m saying i... 

Need to hit the gym, I guess?

I’m loving the Dato based on its looks and as horological milestone but found it borderline comfortable; if the DS is much more heavy, would need to go to the gym prior to trying it on, i guess?🙄 Ps: went myself next door/next street to “Saint Louis” but ... 

Yes, that would be better.

Indeed 👍😉

Amazing piece

I may be biased too.

You know your wrist can handle this Masterpiece.

The ergonomics may be less than 100%, but the watch is. If I can be honest, I like this version of the DS more than either of the triple split from a purely aesthetic perspective.

Here I have to disagree with you which is rare mon ami. I actually prefer the power reserve to the big date as I like simple chronographs WITHOUT a date like our beloved 5070G, VC Malte Chrono, Breguet 5247BB, Duometre Chronograph, etc...

Yes the 39mm Datograph is iconic and was a game changer but it does not mean it was the best example made in the Datograph line-up 😉👍 In addition, I owned it 3 different times and each time I did not keep it as it did not wear comfortably with or without ... 

I also see your point but actually the Double Split dial is MORE symmetrical than the 39mm Datograph dial. Did you know that the other end of the central Chronograph second counter with the diamond PERFECTLY passes over the pinions of the 2 sundials...

 By: holdemchamp1225 : September 16th, 2021-16:42
AS WELL AS the center of the power reserve indicator ? Now that is NEXT LEVEL thinking to make things symmetrical (clin d'œil 😉). Another thing, you look the power reserve indicator of the 5960/1A, no? But I find that one clutters the dial and is out of p... 

That's for sure!

Fully agree 👍

There we are 100% agreed mon ami 😉🙏

We must be related LOL 🤣
