The original Datograph

Nov 18, 2023,18:23 PM

Is still one of my all time favorite watches.  That feels like it punches significantly above its price.

Every time I wear it

I wonder why I own anything else. It’s built better than anything else. The movement architecture is beyond stunning. It’s a perfect size. It’s an incredible time keeper and it’s practical. Really the perfect watch

I agree 100%.

I know!

Recently serviced but thankfully requested no polish to preserve the bevels

Service by Lange? Looks like your watch was not “molested” by a 2nd or 3rd party hence no saga like another member who was not happy here…

May I know if the turnaround time is reason? This Dato is Cat 4 so the charge according to their price list on web? I’m starting to worry about these maintenance costs especially with the brand 😅.

Yes serviced by Lange

I would never have a Lange serviced by a second or third party. Ever. Alkis in NYC can also service these watches well. Although I've heard he might be retiring soon. The cost was around 3k USD.

Thank you M for sharing this. I need to start saving up ….

Enjoy your OG icon.

Alkis has been saying he's going to retire soon for ten years now..

Wait what? When did you get this I thought you weren't interested in the OG Dato anymore?

Best watch ever

Love it! It’s practical due it lumed hands 😀

I would love to see all your culled favorites in a single photo 😀.

An all time classic.

An all time legend

This is a true icon.

The word is overused these days, but is truly warranted in the case of this one. Since their relaunch Lange have managed to produce more than their fair share of icons - but if I could only have one, this would be it.

You are literally wearing a legend on your wrist!

The mighty Datograph definitely punches far above its weight, and I dare say changed the way for chronographs.
