Yes, you read that right. Datographs. For 2024, two new Datographs. The base chronograph in white gold and a chronograph perpetual calendar tourbillon in honey coloured gold.

Live from WWG24: new A. Lange & Söhne Datographs

Lange policy is not to reveal the price, but to state the price as POA. But we understand the Datograph WG is priced circa EUR 125k and for the Datograph Perpetual Tourbillon is about EUR 620k.

If there ever was a time to jazz up the Datograph collection, now would be it, on the 25th anniversary of the legendary Datograph. It’s become somewhat of a routine now for the brand to introduce a Lumen or Honeygold model, but this will only be the second time that a model with the Lumen AND Honeygold trait is released.

Lange Datograph Ab/Auf White Gold

The 25th anniversary of the Datograph is celebrated with a new Datograph. Now in white gold with a blue dial.

The movement is unchanged from the Caliber L951.6. Limited edition 125 pieces.

The Double Datograph coverage begins with the Datograph Up/Down with blue dial. It is the more ‘accessible’ commemorative model of the two, both in terms of price and also supply (50 vs 125 watches). The Datograph Up/Down with blue dial and white gold is still a very handsome watch. Surprisingly, there has never been a Datograph model with blue dial, even when blue dials became trendy at some point this past decade. This anniversary model will be the first blue dialed Datograph ever and honestly, it’s been a long time coming.

Lange Datograph Perpetual Tourbillon Lumen

Also new is the Datograph Perpetual Tourbillon Lumen. Now in honeycoloured gold with a smoked dial. The watch is the same as the earlier Datograph Perpetual Tourbillon, but now without a power reserve indicator. The glass dial does not have the support for the PR indicator and is eliminated. The power reserve remains at 60 hours.

The new movement carries the Caliber L952.4 from the L952.2. Limited Edition of 50.

The lume.

The best way to celebrate a Datograph milestone is by presenting a brand new model with new complications; the second best way is to present the ultimate Datograph variant – with perpetual calendar, tourbillon, honeygold case and “Lumen” aesthetics. And with this, Lange presents this as the Datograph Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon Lumen in honeygold..

The Datograph Perpetual Tourbillon Honeygold “Lumen” is almost assuredly the most premium watch ever inducted into the Datograph collection. It is absolutely decadent, not just in its dial and case aesthetics, but also in its watchmaking.

We will carry a fuller impressions report with the full press release tomorrow.
