The annual watch event, the Geneva International Watch Fair, has been opened. The watch team’s special front report team has begun to work, and they will bring you the latest, fastest and most comprehensive watch fair reports. Now let’s take a look at the big picture of Lange’s latest watch launched at the Geneva Watch Fair.
Lange’s first timepiece
Lange unveiled the ZEITWERK series of minute repeaters. This ingeniously designed watch combines mechanical skipping display and decimal minute repeater. It was Lange’s first timepiece, ten minutes.
Word jump display is particularly eye-catching
The time of the watch is not displayed by hands, but by means of an hour circle and two minute dials. The three worm gears connected to these mechanical display elements will extract the timekeeping numbers corresponding to the hours, ten minutes and minutes, respectively. ZEITWERK MINUTE REPEATER with clear skipping display is a design example and is particularly eye-catching. Small seconds at 6 o’clock. The 12 o’clock position is equipped with a power display indicating that the beeping device will not start when the power reserve is less than twelve hours.
Equipped with L043.5 homemade movement
Equipped with the L043.5 self-made movement, it is carefully modified by hand. The balance wheel, eccentric weight and self-made cardless hairspring under the hand-carved balance wheel splint vibrate 18,800 times per hour. This beeping chronograph is made of platinum 950 and has a diameter of 44.2 mm. The solid silver dial exudes silver-gray light. The time bridge, made of black rhodium-plated German silver, surrounds the hour and minute digital windows on the same plane. Black polished steel hammers are neatly arranged on both sides of the small seconds dial. On the left is the clock, and on the right is the one-minute minute. And every ten minutes, the two hammers will ring the gong at the same time, making two sounds.
Summary: The five-day Geneva Haute Horlogerie exhibition presents us with a unique visual feast, and we look forward to the report group in front of the Watch House bringing us more Wonderful content.
