ZEITWERK DECIMAL STRIKE HONEYGOLD

In unison with time

When the button in the lower right-hand case flank is actuated, the two gong hammers deflect away from the gongs and remain there. This allows the striking function to be deactivated if required. The technical concept of the timepiece, presented in a limited edition of 100, is remarkable, but so is the material from which the case and hands are crafted: it is honey gold, a particularly hard precious metal patented by and proprietary to A. Lange & Söhne. Since 2010, it has been used for select models of the manufactory.

The ZEITWERK DECIMAL STRIKE HONEYGOLD is presented in a limited edition of 100 timepieces.

The digital time indication of the ZEITWERK models was what inspired the innovative striking mechanism of the ZEITWERK DECIMAL STRIKE HONEYGOLD. In contrast to classic strikeworks in analogue watches that intonate hours and quarter-hours, its ten-minute striking mechanism is synchronised with the digital display. With a low-pitched tone, it sounds the full hours and with a higher-pitched tone every elapsed ten-minute interval.

Mysterious dial outlines appear. A stippled hammer comes into view. This is followed by a close-up of the small seconds and the words "DECIMAL STRIKE” in raised lettering below. As the minutes numeral changes from 49 to 50 the ten-minute hammer strikes. We move over to the movement side and observe the gleaming surfaces. A detail view shows the constant-force escapement in action. To end with, the Zeitwerk Decimal Strike presents itself in all its splendour. The time indication jumps from 7.51 to 7.52.
