When it comes to chronographs, few brands can match the skill of A. Lange & Söhne. It is literally one of the most complex chronograph movements available on the market, capable of dividing hours, minutes and seconds when timing an event.

The split second, or rattrapante in French, it allows the tracing of several steps by adding a second hand that can be stopped using a button, ie the “split” function.
Il Double SplitLaunched by A. Lange & Söhne in 2004, he was able not only to divide the seconds but also the minutes. By expanding the functionality of the original fraction-second principles, it could compute more complex time passes. And not content to rest on its laurels, the German manufacturer launched the Triple Split, which was his crowning achievement in the field of chronographs. The Triple Split, an extremely complex movement in which seconds, minutes and hours can be divided with the push of a button, a truly unique and very complex timepiece.
