The Double Split has been a favourite among the watch collecting community for over 14 years now. However, recently announced is the A. Lange & Sohne Triple Split, which is set to reach new heights for the German horological firm. The piece looks set to be an innovative, logical progression of the modern classic Double Split.
The A. Lange & Sohne Triple Split – The First of its Kind
This watch is an impressive step forward for the watch world, and is the very first of its kind to exist. Simply put, the Triple Split is an extension of the Double Split’s capabilities, and is expected to receive the same amount of buzz and plaudits that the Double Split received when it was first unveiled.
How it Works
Essentially, the Triple Split is an extension of the Rattrapante chronograph featured in the Double Split. Before, the Double Split was capable of measuring and comparing the time of two concurrent events, of up to twelve hours’ duration., whereas this updated version can be split three times.
This feature is particularly useful in recording multiple lap times, as it allows the user to “split” hours and minutes, as well as seconds with the press of a button.
Watches rarely have much to compete on besides functionality and aesthetics. So, a world first of this type of horological technology will certainly be noticed in the luxury watch world and can be regarded as a huge leap forward for A. Lange & Sohne.
Lange & Sohne chose to use white gold as the exclusive material choice for the Triple Split, offering no other alternatives.
The A. Lange & Sohne Triple Split is on the bigger side, measuring in at 43.2mm x 15.6 mm. This, combined with the fact that they chose to only manufacture 100 limited edition versions of this model further reinforces A. Lange & Sohne’s choice to position this watch as a major statement by whoever chooses to own it.
An Expected Price Tag from the World’s First Triple Rattrapante
A $147,000 (£111,434) price tag was to be expected from the world’s first triple Rattrapante that was painstakingly designed and handcrafted by one of the most prestigious watch brands on the planet. A price this high deems the watch to be exclusive to only the very highest earning demographic of society; rendering the rest of us to be dreamers, merely admiring the beauty from afar.
