Guardiola of Manchester City was seen sporting an extravagant watch on his wrist – the A. Lange & Söhne Datograph Perpetual 410.038 ‘Grey’ in 18k white gold. This watch, first introduced in 2015, is a testament to the brand’s unparalleled craftsmanship, marrying a chronograph with a perpetual calendar in a single piece.

For the uninitiated, the term ‘perpetual calendar’ might seem like mere technical jargon, but it refers to an incredibly complex mechanism in watchmaking. Unlike a regular calendar watch, a perpetual calendar can account for the varying lengths of months and even leap years. It is the ultimate watch complication and requires expert knowledge and skill to manufacture.

The A. Lange & Söhne Datograph Perpetual 410.038 ‘Grey’ in 18k white gold boasts a 41mm case and is powered by the brand’s signature Calibre L952.1 movement. The grey dial, made of solid silver, features the brand’s iconic big date display and three sub-dials to track the chronograph function. The watch also has a power reserve of 50 hours and is water resistant up to 30 meters.

As for the price, the A. Lange & Söhne Datograph Perpetual 410.038 ‘Grey’ in 18k white gold is not for the faint-hearted. With a retail price of $132,500.00, it is undoubtedly a luxury item reserved for the elite few. However, for those who appreciate the artistry and precision that goes into watchmaking, this timepiece is a true masterpiece.

It is not uncommon for high-profile personalities, especially athletes, to showcase their luxury watches at public events. These timepieces not only serve a functional purpose but also represent their owner’s taste and status. Guardiola’s choice to wear the A. Lange & Söhne Datograph Perpetual 410.038 ‘Grey’ in 18k white gold speaks volumes about his appreciation for fine horology.
