Footnotes

  • 朗格,「Zeitwerk Striking Time」,精緻罕有玫瑰金跳時跳分手動上弦腕錶,備打問報時報刻功能及動力儲存顯示,2017年。附錶盒,證書及說明書。此款玫瑰金腕錶是第一次於拍賣市場出現。

    Unveiled in 2009, the first A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk rapidly became the new face of the highly respected German watchmaker vying for the coveted position of the Lange 1. Dubbed the "Time Bridge" crafted in German silver, the digital, simultaneous jump hour and minute display spans the length of the Zeitwerk's dial, with the subsidiary seconds ring at its center, making it a distinctly legible watch. To ensure the digital time display can switch all three-discs instantaneously requires exceptional engineering, incorporating the use of a constant-force escapement and remontoire.


    The Zeitwerk Striking Time released in 2011 in a limited edition platinum and non-limited white gold version is a truly technical marvel, not only able to cope with the complexity and power needs of a fully digital display, but incorporating a striking mechanism as well. The impeccable result can be appreciated in the present pink gold example with a solid silver dial that was only made available in 2014; a beautifully choreographed mechanical show of two polished hammers, striking the hour in a low-pitched tone on the left and the quarter hours with a higher pitched tone on the right. The striking feature can be set to silent through a small pusher at the four o'clock position.


    According to our research, this is the first time the pink gold version (Ref. 145.032) of the Zeitwerk Striking Time has appeared at auction.

    A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk 於2009年成立後,即成德國的尊崇製錶代表。Lange 1外號「時間橋」,以德國銀造成,同步跳躍時分跳字式顯示橫跨錶面,而輔助秒針顯示位於正中,可讀性極高,擒縱系恆定動力裝置確保三碟同時跳動,是卓越的機械工程成就。

    Zeitwerk Striking Time於2011年以鉑金限量版及非限量版白金版面世,實為機械奇跡,不但解決了複雜的結構及能源問題,更有報時裝置。這枚只於2014年生產的玫瑰金配銀針版本身上,無可挑剔的結果更為動人:兩邊的音槌,左方於整點時發出低音調,右方則於三個刻鐘發出高音調,按下4點鐘位置的按鈕,即可暫停鳴響功能。

    據知此為首枚現身拍賣場的Zeitwerk Striking Time玫瑰金版本(編號 145.032)。
