A. Lange & Sohne Zeitwerk Hand-Wound Watch

A. Lange & Sohne Zeitwerk Hand-Wound Watch
The Zeitwerk Hand-Wound Watch by German watch maker A. Lange & Sohne turned a new page in the mechanical watch-making insudry. And this year’s updated e Zeitwerk Luminous model pushes this revolution to a new high.

For me, the A. Lange & Sohne Zeitwerk Luminous has two very attractive aspects. The first one is the semi-skeletonized dial that impresses everyone even at the very first glimspe. Covered by a a semi-opaque crystal, the dial tells hours and minutes via the window at 9 and 3 o’clock respetively. The well-known time bridge, crafted from PVD-coated German silver, also contains a small second subsidiary dial. Above the bridge, there sits the power reserve indicator. The second attractive part, as the watch title suggests, is the SuperLuminova application. The numerals for the hour and minutes have been coated with luminescent substance that ensure several-hour optimal time reaing in darkness. Now, the new A. Lange & Sohne Zeitwerk Luminous takes the idea even further.Unfortunately, while the original Zeitwerk was available in rose, yellow and white gold, as well as platinum, the Zeitwerk Luminous comes only in an expensive platinum body, which makes it a really expensive piece of work.

Like the original Zeitwerk, the Zeitwerk Luminous watch is driven by the Caliber L043.1. This in-house manual-wind movement, composed of 388 parts, beats at a frequncy of 18,000 vph. With a thickness at 9.3 mm, it allows the case constructed in a height of just 12.6mm.
