The Zeitwerk design by A. Lange & Sohne is the first ever mechanical watch to feature a jumping numerals mechanism using three disks. It is a unique and highly complex milestone for designers at the company’s manufacturing facilities to achieve and remains one of the most innovative designs of the contemporary era. The time is read from left to right thanks to one rotating disk controlling the hours and the other two rotating discs showcasing the minutes. The small seconds are provided just underneath this “time bridge” achieving a look that has never been seen before. Lovers of mechanical innovations will be inclined to add this speciality of A. Lange & Sohne's to their collection. Its innovative dial layout achieved through bold contrasting colours and a mix of premium materials, keeps the wristwatch looking fresh and unique from anything else on the market today.
Zeitwerk watches by A. Lange & Sohne promote legibility at all times. Those wearing the watch whilst working in a fast-paced environment will find the natural inclination to read the time from left to right an effortless task. Likewise, the timepiece can be worn to those more casual events – meeting friends at the bar after work or sipping a coffee on the bustling streets of Paris. A. Lange & Sohne use only the finest materials during the manufacturer of each of their timepieces. White gold, rose gold and platinum are much-loved favourites of the Zeitwerk watch, which of course, will combine well with a smart suit and a pair of cufflinks in the same finish. Each A. Lange & Sohne Zeitwerk watch is equipped with a sapphire crystal glass-back feature, which grants unique access into the company’s exclusive world of watch manufacture. Here beautifully finished components can be admired as well as the meticulous positioning of each part of the movement’s assembly and its flawless performance as a united engine. A special escapement integrated in between the barrel and the balance wheel provides just the right amount of energy to power the three disks around.
The A. Lange & Sohne Zeitwerk 18ct white gold Handwound watch from our collection here at Owen & Robinson, is a stunning design which features a smooth, rich black dial penetrated by a white gold time bridge with decorative screws that enhance an industrial-inspired look upon the wrist. Whilst the 18ct rose good version of this watch will be popular with those who prefer the beauty of a vintage inspired watch, the white gold version is distinctly modern. It features a practical power reserve at the north of the dial for keeping track on the status of the hand wound movement inside, which will last up to 36 hours in between winding. The white background behind the hour and minute dials enhance legibility – a feature that will be welcomed by those who like to keep time-reading as simple snd as effortless as possible.
