An amazing release of a timepiece that has only been available in platinum or 18k white gold until now, and now the A. Lange & Sohne Zeitwerk striking pink gold watch takes center stage in all its brilliance. This new version is absolutely breathtaking with the solid silver and untreated German silver dial, as well as unique case material. The quantity will be limited for a variety of reasons, but not a surprise since most of these quality timepieces find themselves in great demand and limited supply.
The chiming mechanism components provide three high-pitched chimes and one lower-pitched tone provide a time announcement with each passing quarter and full hour. These components are visible in the dial design; the black-polished steel hammers can be clearly seen on either side of the subsidiary seconds dial, sitting on the right for the quarter hours and on the left for the full hours. Embedded in the recess situated between the dial and bezel are the two gongs. This mechanism can be deactivated with a push piece at 4 o'clock that silences the timepiece.
With perfect proportions, and a exquisite design, the A. Lange & Sohne Zeitwerk striking watch in pink gold with the elegant silver dial and pink gold hands has taken the globe by storm. The case measures 44.2 mm in diameter, and has the L043.2 calibre at the heart. Fulfilling all the expectations for the brand and the timepiece connoisseurs, it is more than just a decorated piece, it features the hand construction for the balance wheel, poising weights, and the proprietary brand balance spring. The calibre also is equipped with 528 parts, 78 jewels; two screwed gold chatons and a 36 hour power reserve.
The impressive legibility of the watch is due to the large numerals of the adjacent hour and minute indications. The patented constant-force escapement advances the numerals in fractions of a second, minute by minute when at the full hour all three of the numeral discs leap forward in unison by the one increment. Many folks will own only one brand timepiece and this is the choice simply because of the ease of reading and distinctive appearance.
The three jumping discs do require a lot of power, and why the A. Lange & Sohne have integrated a very unique designed constant force mechanism in the movement. This system ensures a high level of accuracy, and of course the highest brand quality and reliability one can buy. A lovely addition to any collection, and beautiful on any wrist.
