Haute Living Watch of the Week: A. Lange & Söhne Lange Zeitwerk Striking Time

lange striking beautyThe pink gold version of this watch was introduced recently, after being launched in a limited edition platinum series. It is the brand’s first chiming wristwatch and uniquely shows the hammers and gong on the dial side, on each side of the subsidiary seconds dial. Every 15 minutes, the mechanism triggers the striking of one of the two gongs. Three higher-pitched tones sound each quarter hour, while a low-pitched tone chimes the top of the hour. The watch has a double jumping mechanism, with hours appearing in a window at the top left, and minutes at the top right. In fractions of a second, the patented constant-force escapement advances the numerals minute by minute until the full hour when all three numeral discs jump forward simultaneously by exactly one increment.
