Hours and minutes are indicated with jumping numerals that always deliver a precise reading. The dominant feature of the watch is the time bridge, which, as part of the movement, penetrates the dial and simultaneously constitutes the frame for all time indications.

The ZEITWERK STRIKING TIME is the world’s first mechanical wristwatch with a jumping numerals display and a visible chiming mechanism. The full hour is indicated with a reverberant low-pitched tone, each quarter-hour with a clear high-pitched tone.

A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk – The New Era of the Mechanical Watch

To avid watch collectors, the Lange Zeitwerk is the most unique watch that tested everything the watch industry has ever known. With the Zeitwerk, A. Lange & Söhne gave us a new way to tell time, that was both pioneering and just plain different.

The Lange Zeitwerk is the first mechanical watch to display the time with large, easily legible “jumping numerals.” The hour is represented on the left while the minutes are on the right. The timebridge, as it’s referred to, is encased in German silver, and is the most prominent element on the dial.

As is seen in the Pink Gold Zeitwerk above, the crown is positioned to point towards the northeast, unlike other watches, making it easier to wind, and more comfortable to wear.

In order to keep the most precise time, the hour dial and the two minute dials must work in harmony as they continuously rotate. To overcome issues in past digital watch models, the experts at A. Lange & Söhne developed their own jumping numerals mechanism to absorb the surplus of energy after each turn of the dials.

Striking Time

The A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk Striking Time adds another level to digital timekeeping that can only be described as flawless.

Two gong hammers are placed under the two numeral windows and two gongs indicate the time. Every quarter-hour, the hammer under the minutes strikes to produce a high-pitched gong. At the top of the hour, the left-hand hammer sounds and emits a low-pitched gong. The model on the left is not limited as the case metal is white gold, but the platinum Zeitwerk Striking Time is limited to only 100 pieces!

The design of the striking gongs can be attributed to the history of A. Lange & Söhne in Glashütte, Germany. In past centuries, Glashütte was a hub for mining until the supply of ore ran low and the founder, Ferdinand A. Lange, brought life back to the town with the watchmaking industry. The coat of arms of Glashütte includes a hammer and pick to represent mining, therefore the shape of the gongs reflects that of a pick.
