Home A. Lange has presented the new Zeitwerk Minute Repeater Honeygold, the only mechanical wristwatch with jumping digit display and decimal minute repeater. A clock in which by pressing a button you can ring the hours, ten-minute intervals and minutes. A new and beautiful watch that has been created in a limited edition of only 30 pieces with a gray dial and a case made of Lange’s exclusive honey gold (HONEYGOLD).
In 2015, A. Lange & Söhne presented an entirely new interpretation of this classic complication with the platinum ZEITWERK MINUTE REPEATER, whose extremely technically complex mechanism can be heard at will. Instead of ringing as usual every quarter of an hour, it does so in ten-minute intervals, thus exactly corresponding its exclusive acoustic system with the digital mechanical time indication. If the pusher is pressed at 10 o’clock, a low tone sounds for each elapsed hour, a double tone (high/low) for each ten-minute interval, and a high tone for each minute. The time that appears in the image, 7:52, would ring with seven low tones, five double tones and two high tones. You see what you hear, and you hear what you see.
«Each repetition of the minutes has a unique sound. Apart from the bells and hammers, the case material has the most influence on the sound effect. In the same way that a musical instrument generates different sounds and tones depending on the material. And that’s exactly what happens with the honey gold of our novelty: it sounds different from all the other materials, I would even say that it sounds completely different.
