Interesting - a mechanical, digital watch.
At the risk of sounding sacrilegious and being burned at the stake, the numerals remind me a bit of those old bedside clock radios with the "flip" numbers:post #46072 of 483129/3/15 at 4:40pmpost #46073 of 483129/3/15 at 5:32pmpost #46074 of 483129/3/15 at 6:14pmpost #46075 of 483129/3/15 at 6:45pmQuote:
If I'm not mistaken, Ferdinand A. Lange, was involved in the making of one of the first digital clocks in the 1840's for an opera house in Dresden. That seemed to be the inspiration for several of Lange's modern watches.post #46076 of 483129/3/15 at 6:51pmpost #46077 of 483129/3/15 at 11:24pmQuote:
Dino, you're correct, or at least that's what my Lange brochure tells me.
Thanks mimo/frills - worth the wait and combined effort. I love a bit of Zeiten-verken every so often. You'd need to have a cool job in architecture, or some other profession that permits the wearing of black rollneck sweaters, to pull it off. Maybe a highly successful, but avant garde, composer.post #46078 of 483129/4/15 at 2:36am
I've heard the same re. Dresden Opera House. I imagine the original was destroyed by my compatriots in 1945.
Even as a Lange fanboi, I've never been especially moved by the Zeitwerk. But as with many things, sticking it on the wrist makes all the difference. Damn, I'd wear it with anything! The weight and proportions are imposing, but the short lugs make it quite wearable. Not for the very slender gentleman perhaps, but anyone who could tolerate a ($100k) Radiomir could live happily with this.
The more observant of you will have noted from the second picture that it has an extra protrusion from the case. This one is the "Striking Time" - a quarter repeater version, hence the premium. Properly frillyvolous. And a bit bigger, but not so much I didn't want to run out of the shop with it. I was definitely moved.post #46079 of 483129/4/15 at 4:03am
Since we're talking about lange, I just got back my Saxonia from servicing and polishing.
I always wonder what does the stylise B at the back of the tang buckle stands for and took the
opportunity to ask them. he told me that Lange buckles are made by this company call Boucledor SA.
and the B is their logo. they do buckles for IWC and other high end brands as well.post #46080 of 483129/4/15 at 4:35am
