Info

With rattrapante chronographs split time measurements, time comparisons, as well as minimum and maximum time value measurements can be performed, in addition to the usual functions of chronographs.

But in conventional rattrapante chronographs these functions are limited to the seconds scale, ie exactly 60 seconds. The double rattrapante mechanism, developed by A. Lange & Söhne and presented with the model Double Split, is also equipped with a counter of flyback minutes. With this, it is now possible to use to the flyback functions up to a period of 30 minutes - and thus really useful.

The Lange Double Split, published 2004, is the world's first flyback chronograph with double rattrapante function.

In the same year this model won the Special Prize of the Jury at the prestigious Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève.
