A. Lange and Sohne Triple Split Watch


By: Natalie Lauer

The A. Lange and Sohne Triple Split is a watch capable of telling the time of two places concurrently. This watch was an extension from the previous Double Split, introduced in 2004. The A. Lange and Sohne has two second hands, but looks like one hand until the split button is pushed. This watch was “considered one of the most challenging of all complications,” costing 147,000 dollars.


The A. Lange and Sohne Triple Split relates to engineering because engineers had to create a watch that showed times of different places at the same time. This was was very complicated and involved math, mechanics, and creative people to make this watch.
