A LANGE & SÖHNE

Zeitwerk Minute Re­peater There was a flurry of ac­tiv­ity from the es­teemed Glashütte man­u­fac­turer, with a sub­tle facelift of the Sax­o­nia line, a new cal­i­bre for the Lange 1 and a blis­ter­ing black di­alled/rose gold Dato­graph Up/Down model. But the star of the show sits unashamedly at the high­est end of Lange’s col­lec­tion. The Zeitwerk Minute Re­peater, the first dec­i­mal minute re­peater with nu­meric dis­play, is, by any stan­dard, a work of art. The 44mm plat­inum time­piece dis­plays hours and min­utes as numeral dig­its on rings and discs and the dial is also home to a small sec­onds sub­dial and power re­serve in­di­ca­tor. A. Lange & Söhne has dis­pensed with the con­ven­tional slide mech­a­nism that other minute re­peaters use in favour of a pusher.
