DEVOTED TO MECHANICAL INGENUITY
When we developed the ZEITWERK, we questioned everything – except for the mechanical heart. The result is a digital-display watch with a jumping numerals mechanism. Its most salient design feature is the time bridge. Framing the displays of hours, minutes and seconds, it is a component of the movement that penetrates the dial in this place.
The ZEITWERK is the first mechanical wristwatch that displays the time digitally with jumping numerals that allow unambiguous legibility at all times. In addition to a tens- and a units-minute disc, the jumping numerals mechanism is endowed with a large hour ring that spans almost the entire diameter of the movement. All numerals are identical in size and arranged for natural left-to-right reading.
