Why Is The Awesome Datograph The Ultimate Chronograph?

"It’s nearly twenty years old. Still most watch lovers consider the Datograph to be the ultimate mechanical chronograph. Why is that? With the unveiling of the impossibly cool Datograph Lumen Up/Down last week, we decided to investigate this icon further. What we found was both surprising and inspiring. This is more than just a watch. It’s a story of war, expropriation, perseverance, innovation and incredible patience. This is the story of the A. Lange & Söhne Datograph."

No, it’s not the ultimate thing. In terms of the finishing on the movement, it might be, but the silly button for the date is just what it is - it’s silly. The 1815 chrono seems a wee bit more civilized.
His deepest need was that people should like him. An admirable trait, that... In a spaniel, or a whore.
