Description

The signature design by Lange & Sohne is certainly the Zeitwerk model, introduced by the brand in 2009.
It is the first mechanical wristwatch to have a digital display system via the “Time Bridge” (large hour ring).
Its tasteful oversized case of 41.9mm in gold or platinum is hiding the powerful mechanism that delivers the necessary energy to power the jumping hour and minutes’s discs.
In the upper part of the dial, the power-reserve indicator with the famous Up “auf” & Down “ab” indications tells the owner when it is time to re-energise the movement, we could compare this to a “V12” engine, hence the decent autonomy of 36-hours.   We can admire through the transparent case-back the lavishly decorated caliber L043.1 manufactured in-house.


*

A.Lange & Sohne – bio

Founded in 1845 by Ferdinand Adolph Lange in Glashütte, Germany.  The company soon became the pioneers in watchmaking in their region.  After Ferdinand’s death his sons, Emil and Richard continued to produce the finest pocket watches of their time.
During World War II, they were victims of bombardments and eventually even got nationalised by the Soviet administration and ceased to exist. At the fall of the Berlin wall in 1990, the grand son of the founder, Walter Lange, revived the company with the help of Swiss watch manufacturers such as IWC & Jaeger-LeCoultre.   The brand introduced their new collection in 1994 with success and by 2000 the company got acquired by the Richemont Group.
