What is the level of the new Zeitwerk Time Machine Lumen 18K honey gold watch?

In 2010, Zeitwerk “Luminous” watch, model: 140.035

A. Lange & Söhne’s Lumen (luminous) series of watches can be said to be one of the most popular works in the history of the brand. In the early years, when sports watches were not yet so popular, at that time, formal watches were the darlings of players’ wrists. Their appearance designs were roughly the same: simple and clear design, exquisite and meticulous polishing process, with mens Unique distinguished characteristics, elegant and beautiful. And in 2010, Germany Lange brought a unique dress watch-the jump word display watch with luminous coating, that is, Zeitwerk “Luminous” watch, “luminous function” and “jump word display” Putting these two together, a seemingly impossible design, Lange merged it and showed an unexpected design effect.

In 2021, Zeitwerk Time Machine Lumen Watch 18K Honey Gold Watch
Model 142.055

This new Zeitwerk watch just released is the new model of the above-mentioned 2010 watch-Zeitwerk Time Machine Lumen 18K honey gold watch, which is commonly known as the “Lange Owl Luminous Watch”.

In 2009, A. Lange & Söhne brought the Zeitwerk time mechanical watch with a unique design and novel style. This is a jumper display watch, that is, the left window displays the hours, the right displays the minutes, and the lower is an independent small seconds dial. , The middle is connected by a German silver splint (officially called the “time bridge”). Because the overall shape resembles an owl, watch fans also call it Lange “owl”, which is very distinctive and representative. Nowadays, Lange Zeitwerk time machine series watch has become one of its representative works, and it is also a must for powerful players.

Of course, the jumper display watches on the market today are not unique to Lange, so what are the advantages of Lange Zeitwerk time mechanical watches?

A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk time mechanical watch is the first mechanical watch that can realize the jump type digital display function and constant power, and it can also realize the simultaneous jump of the hour and minute dials.

The movement is fully updated

The skip word display function makes the time display extra intuitive and clear, so why is this function less used nowadays? This is because if you want to achieve precise jumps, the movement must provide a powerful spring to support energy, and this energy needs to be constant, not to affect the energy of the escapement balance, and to interfere with the accuracy of travel time. In order to solve this problem, this new time-mechanical Lumen watch 18K honey gold watch in the picture has two barrels set up inside to provide the power required for switching. The switching node is made of a patented constant force escapement system. Control, it can also ensure that the balance wheel is always driven by constant power, the design is very sophisticated, and can provide up to 72 hours of power reserve, which is twice the previous model of the same movement.

The position of the constant device is set between the barrel and the balance wheel, which is used to store the energy supplied to the escapement balance wheel separately, and then provide power for the jump character every 60 seconds to isolate the barrel and the escapement balance wheel. In this way, it is possible to ensure that the digital disk instantly jumps and travels accurately at the same time. It is worth noting that the general jump character digital display device cannot achieve instant and accurate jump every minute within 60 minutes. At present, it can do Brands that can jump to “hour” and “minute” are very rare, which is also the key advantage of A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk watches.

On the other hand, this new watch is equipped with a brand-new Lange watch factory-made L043.9 movement. A. Lange & Söhne will integrate the hour display correction button that first appeared on the Zeitwerk time mechanical calendar watch into this new watch. Above, although the size of the watch is still 41.9 mm, the number of internal parts has increased to 462 compared to the old model, which shows that its design is sophisticated.

Whenever the lower right button of the watch is pressed, the clutch separates the hour ring and the skipping device, so as to perform independent correction outside the switching cycle of the time display. The wearer can also adjust the minute display in two directions through the crown at 2 o’clock. This function is of great significance to the jump word display watch.

In addition to the technical aspect, it is not easy to make a jump word display watch with a luminous function. The Zeitwerk Time Mechanical Lumen watch 18K honey gold watch still continues the most outstanding luminous display design of the previous representative model: dial cover There is a light-transmitting coating. The numbers on the three digital dials are equipped with a luminous coating. During the day, the internal hour dial and two minute dials can absorb energy, and then emit a luminous effect at night. The design is very ingenious, and every strength Players are all overwhelmed by their looks.

The new Zeitwerk Time Machine Lumen watch 18K honey gold watch also specially uses a variety of alloys and special heat treatment of 18K gold alloy material to make the watch, showing the unique noble color of metal, although the previous generation model adopted value Higher platinum models, but the appearance of non-ferrous metals is also particularly outstanding.
