More about A. Lange and Sohne 145.025 Zeitwerk Striking Time 145.025 Platinum LIMITED

This is a platinum A. Lange & Sohne Zeitwerk Striking Time 145.025. It has an alligator leather strap with a platinum tang buckle, scratch resistant sapphire crystals, and an exhibition sapphire crystal case back secured with 6 screws, engraved with "A. LANGE & SOHNE - GLASHUTTE S.A. – LIMITED NO.," and hallmarks. It includes a screw down signed winding crown at the 2 o'clock position, and a rectangular button on the right side of the case edge at 5 o'clock deactivates the chiming striking mechanism, which utilizes two polished stainless steel gongs that are located beneath the jumping minute and hour digital windows; they sound by striking the circumferential gongs suspended between the dial and the bezel, with a reverberant low-pitched tone on the hour, and a clear high-pitched tone at the quarter hours. The 44.2mm diameter solid three-body case, downturned lugs, and convex bezel are polished/brushed. The dial is silver with a railway-style 36-hour up-and-down power reserve at the 12 o'clock position, and a constant small seconds subsidiary dial at 6 o'clock, both with rhodium-plated white gold hands. The untreated German silver movement bridge projects through the dial, forming the hours, minutes & seconds displays. In a recessed, tapered rectangular aperture on the left is the jumping hour, and its twin on the right shows the jumping minutes. The dial is lowered to surround the bridge, greatly reducing the overall case thickness. Visible on the bridge is a large screw attaching it to the mainplate, and a sapphire jewel end-stone. The 13.1mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed.

Lange & Sohne caliber L043.2 movement that's constructed with 78 jewels, 528 components, and a Rhodium plated German Silver Time Bridge. It includes the patented A.
