Lange is famous for its unparalleled superb technology and high level of perfect craftsmanship. It is good at unique complex functions and delicate polishing. At the Geneva Watch Fair this year, Lange again launched a new model-TripleSplit. This watch is the world’s first mechanical chronograph that can perform 12-hour counterclockwise chronograph, breaking the brand’s first accumulated chronograph record of 30 minutes in 2004 with DOUBLESPLIT. This trio of chasing seconds, minutes, and hours is a trio of watch complications. Next, let’s enjoy the Lange-Saxony TripleSplit watch. (Watch model: 424.038)
Prior to this, Lange had introduced the first 30-minute double-tracking watch in the history of mechanical watchmaking, with a recording interval of 30 minutes. Among the many advanced complication functions, in terms of positive interactivity, only the minute repeater function is comparable to the double-tracking hand. This time Lange made it more difficult, and this triple-tracked watch can measure up to 12 hours of extra and comparative time. For the relatively simple double-tracking device, it is not easy for two pointers on the same mandrel to run on top of each other. In the triple-needle follow-up device, the adjustment of the end wheel of the multiple mandrel configuration is exquisite in craftsmanship and patience. When the time measurement is started, all hands move at the same time. After pressing the chase button, the three blue steel hands stop running and display the segment time, and the other hands continue to run. When the push-button is pressed again, the three blue-steel hands will catch up with the running hand and measure the time at the same time. In this chronograph, the three pairs of chronograph hands also have a flyback function, so during the measurement process, as long as you press the chronograph button, you can reset and immediately restart the chronograph, making the operation more convenient.
Watch real shot
The case of this watch is made of 18K white gold, the bezel is polished, and the sides are brushed to a brushed process, presenting a completely different look and feel, exquisite simplicity.
On the solid silver-gray dial, there is a 30-minute counter at 4 o’clock, a small second at 8 o’clock, and a 12-hour counter at 12 o’clock. The power reserve indicator is located at 6 o’clock below. The board left more room to play, and the whole board looked orderly. The three blue steel chase hands and the rhodium-plated chronograph hands are in sharp contrast. The hour and minute hands have a luminous effect. The design of various small details ensures that the time can be read clearly. This watch combines the precise instantaneous jump-tracking integrated dial and continuous time-tracking time dial to increase the measurement time range of the tracking function by 24 times.
The 18K white gold crown at 3 o’clock is engraved with the brand logo and features a non-slip texture design for easy adjustment of the watch. On both sides of the crown are timing start, stop and reset buttons, and a chase start and stop button at 10 o’clock for long multi-task timing.
The hand-stitched crocodile leather strap with 18K white gold pin buckle is engraved with the Lange ‘LANGE’ logo, showing a low-key and mature charm.
This time the triple-studded watch is equipped with Lange’s own movement L132.1. Through sapphire crystal glass, you can observe the complex chronograph movement, the interaction between gears, levers, hairsprings, clutches and jumpers. The L132.1 calibre adds a complex set of tracking timekeeping linkage system above the balance wheel, which is staggered with the conventional timing system, but this calibre is not simply a stack of functions, but a completely re-developed machine core. The Lange developed and patented split toothing device prevents the loss of amplitude that is usually unavoidable. With this device, the friction force is not affected by the activation of the tracking function.
Summary: The limited edition of the Lange-Saxony Triple Split watch is limited to 100 pieces, and the function of the triple follower is one of the most complicated watches at the Geneva watch exhibition. Although this triple chronograph chronograph watch looks complicated, the design of this watch shows a mature and stable masculinity, and it can still be completed by relying on three buttons in operation. .
