A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk Striking Time in Pink Gold 6

The Lange Zeitwerk Striking Time from A. Lange & Söhne is already available in White gold and platinum, at the SIHH 2014 watchmaker has added a third precious metal to the collection – pink gold. As with the previous versions, the pink gold watch features its main mechanism – chiming.

The 44 mm pink gold case gives housing to the in-house built 36 mm L043.2 caliber manual movement with 528 components. Movement delivers a power reserve of 36 hours and enables a more traditional 2.5 Hz frequency. The solid silver argenté-colored dial features hour and minute windows with jumping numerals at 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock respectively. The power reserve indicator is at 12 o’clock and the small seconds at 6 o’clock. The hands of the power reserve and seconds dial are in pink gold. The balance cock and constant force escapement are both hand-engraved and the Time Bridge is untreated German silver.

The chiming mechanism of the watch features two hammers and gongs that are part of the dial and visible. The hammers made from black-polished steel are set on either side of the subsidiary seconds dial located at 6 o’clock. The quarter hours hammer on the right is between 3 o’clock and 6 o’clock, while the hammer for the full hour is located between 9 o’clock and 6 o’clock. Easily recognizable gongs are rested between the dial and bezel. The quarter hours are announced by three higher-pitched tones, while a low-pitched tone rings in the top of the hour. A part of the chiming mechanism is its silencer, on the instance that you do not wish to be disturbed, the push piece at 4 o’clock can be used to deactivate the chime. The workings of the richly decorated movement is viewable from the sapphire crystal case back.

A beautiful brown leather strap accompanies the watch. Price upon request.
