A. Lange & Söhne @ Collectors Vote For ZEITWERK MINUTE REPEATER
For the third time, a mechanical watch made by A. Lange & Söhne wins the “Watch of the Year” contest on the website www.timezone.com, one of the world’s largest community of wristwatch enthusiasts. Seven models had been nominated by the moderators of the different brand forums at www.timezone.com. The ZEITWERK MI-NUTE REPEATER received 25 per cent of the community votes. “We are very proud to receive this award for the third time”, says Lange CEO Wilhelm Schmid. “We feel honoured that a community of watch collectors from all over the world decides again for a Lange timepiece.” The community of the English language website for wristwatch collectors, which was founded in 1994, has awarded A. Lange & Söhne already in 2009 for the ZEITWERK and in 2012 for the LANGE 1 TOURBILLON PERPETUAL CALENDAR. The ZEITWERK MINUTE REPEATER combines a mechanical jumping numerals display with a decimal minute repeater for the first time. It sounds the hours, ten-minute intervals, and minutes with a low-pitched tone for each elapsed hour, a double tone for each elapsed ten-minute period, and a high-pitched tone for each elapsed minute.
