Lange & Sohne Datograph and toys for boys.

An old picture of what I consider as one of the most iconic Lange and one of the finest modern chronograph, the Datograph first generation. 

With the matching pen and lighter. 

I miss it. This is THE Lange which made me dream in 1999, when it was unveiled. The first Lange which caught my attention and fed my desire, which made my heart beat faster. 

A pure masterpiece.

The datograph was the first watch which made me realize that there is quality beyond PP. Always thought the watch is too big for me based on dimensions but tried it on recently and find it surprisingly wearable. A grail.

Groundbreaking timepiece

First held the Datograph in my hands when I visited Glashütte in 2000/2001. Dr Frank Müller graciously showed us around the Manufaktur and we met many of the watchmakers involved in the design and construction of the watch. Whilst I liked the traditional ...

And like you've mentioned, a wake up call to the rest. Coincidentally, I saw the datograph up down in person recently for the first time. I really like the heft and the proportions. How do you feel it measures up to its predecessor?

The on/off indicator is silly and spoils the dial.

Thanks for the side by side!

Well, I am still dreaming... LOL [nt]

Outrageously eye catching and beautiful, wasn't sure about the thickness factor when dealing with a shirt cuff. Mesmerizing, if a little tight under a dress cuff Is it sporty or dressy? ...  

I tried both and owned first gen

I could not get used to the smaller but thicker feel. I prefer the second gen.

Have not seen this lighter before

Perfect combo! Can post only two of this three items ))) Interesting that some PP lighters were sold currently for more than 10K WBR Serge

Dato is comfortable

I put my original plat dato on a Shinola ss bracelet. There is no top heaviness, watch is extremely comfortable and it looks good.
