If double-rattrapante mechanisms are your thing, then you will already be au fait with
A Lange & Söhne’s Double Split. The chronograph made horology headlines in 2004 with a mechanism that not only drove a rattrapante hand on the 60-second scale but also had a jumping minute counter. Heralding a new era of chronographs, this was the first that allowed comparative measurements of events lasting as long as
30 minutes. The Datograph Perpetual, introduced two years later, had the same escapement, with the addition of a column-wheel flyback chronograph with a jumping minute counter. Celebrating the success of both models, the brand has created new livery for its legendary chronos: a pink gold case and a lustrous argenté dial. £83,500. Coming soon to The Fine Watch Room, Ground Floor
