The ZEITWERK features a digital display and is one of the most advanced watches of the contemporary era. It is the first mechanical wristwatch with a jumping numerals mechanism consisting of three discs. This groundbreaking concept has received multiple awards.
The energy needed to keep the watch running is supplied by a patented mainspring barrel, while the patented design of the constant-force escapement controls the exact ticking interval. This innovative concept has been realised with an inimitable design. One of the most striking design elements on the dial is the time bridge. It forms part of the movement and is simultaneously the frame for all time indications.
