Three years ago, Lange released the first mechanical wrist Lange Zeitwerk with a constant-power escapement to support accurate word display. Since then, this award-winning watch has become one of the brand’s most successful products. The special edition watch with the title of Handwerkskunst has set a new peak for this series.
Lange adds traditional elements to its most advanced watches. Lange Zeitwerk’s limited edition of 30 watches showcases the finest Saxony craftsmanship. This special edition watch is only available exclusively in Lange boutiques. The meticulous case, dial and movement decoration, as well as its Glashütte lever escapement show the craftsmanship and watchmaking skills of this Saxony watch factory. These traditional elements have made many technological innovations in this exquisite masterpiece.
精致 The dial in white gold and black rhodium is decorated with delicate Tremblage carvings. The engraver sculpted a special lined engraving knife with a unique and multi-angle movement across the dial surface by hand, creating a delicate and vivid grainy texture. This is a huge challenge for the sculptor: the curved Lange logo and the letters of the power reserve display must be balanced on this uneven surface. The rhodium-plated German silver time bridge polished in a straight line also contrasts with the black dial. German silver, which has always been used to make bridges and plywood, is one of Lange’s materials for manufacturing movements. As part of the dial, the time bridge surrounds all time displays: a large white jump-type hour and minute display, and a small seconds dial made of solid silver. The combination of these precious metals is most dazzling with its platinum case. The Lange signature, case number and limited number on the case back are also engraved by hand
. Through the sapphire crystal case back of Lange Zeitwerk Handwerk-s-kunst, you can admire the extremely precise built-in movement L043.4. In addition to Lange’s classic 3/4 plywood and screw-fixed gold sleeve, It also has a number of artistic decorations: the 3/4 splint made of untreated German silver is decorated with a granular surface and hand-engraved lettering; the Lange signature on the barrel is embossed: this craft requires an engraver The main body is cut out of the material to make it look like a relief; the balance wheel and escapement plywood are also decorated with special hand carving. The top of the bridge of the constant power escapement is also treated with the most delicate and time-consuming black polishing technique. The Glashütte lever escapement in the watch is a tribute to the Lange tradition of the 19th century. Its levers and escapement wheels are made of enhanced 18K gold. The advantage of this material is its magnetic resistance, and the widely used diamagnetic alloy was not invented at that time. The lever is designed to maintain balance in any position. Its pawls are hidden and slightly curved to reduce friction with the escape wheel. All these subtle and perfectly used designs make this precise watch. This generation of Lange watchmakers used one of Ferdinando Adolf Lange’s most important inventions to make this watch; for them, it was an extremely attractive challenge.一款 This exclusive and limited edition collection of 30 pieces is only available at seven Lange brand stores worldwide. Lange Zeitwerk Handwerk-s-kunst was officially opened in Lange on September 26, 2012. The brand store in Dubai Mall, one of the world’s largest shopping malls, was officially announced.
