How was it ac­quired?

This was pur­chased from Sin­cere Fine Watches.

What made you buy this watch?

I con­sider the Dato­graph Up/down to be one of the best chrono­graphs ever made. Its pre­de­ces­sor was, of course, the Dato­graph that shook the horo­log­i­cal world up, and while some peo­ple pre­fer it, I think that the im­prove­ments made in the Dato­graph Up/down make it an even big­ger win­ner. Some peo­ple have re­marked that the orig­i­nal Dato­graph feels “top heavy” on the wrist. The Dato­graph Up/down negates the is­sue with its 41mm di­am­e­ter, which feels more bal­anced. Then, there’s the longer power re­serve, which is also an im­prove­ment. Lastly, I like the ef­fort that went into the dial’s de­sign. A. Lange & Söhne chose to use date aper­tures that are 4 per cent big­ger, in­stead of reusing the old ones, for ex­am­ple.

How does this watch fit into your gen­eral life­style?

It’s a ver­sa­tile watch, so I wear it with any­thing from jeans to suits.
