In the Lange Zeitwerk Striking Time, key chiming mechanism components are visibly integrated into the dial design. The black-polished steel hammers can be seen on either side of the subsidiary seconds dial: one on the right for the quarter hours and one on the left for the full hours. The two gongs, embedded in a recess between the dial and bezel, are also readily recognisable. Every 15 minutes, the mechanism triggers the striking of one of the two gongs. Three higher-pitched tones sound each quarter hour, while a low-pitched tone chimes the top of the hour. The chiming mechanism can be deactivated to prevent any disturbance. A push piece at 4 o’clock raises the hammers and silences the replica Rolex watches. This process can be observed through the sapphire-crystal glass, so it is al-ways apparent whether the mechanism is switched on or off.
With its precisely jumping numerals display, this timepiece also represents lucid design and crisp legibility. In fractions of a second, the patented constant-force escapement advances the numerals minute by minute until the full hour when all three numeral discs jump forward simultaneously by exactly one increment.
The L043.2 manufacture calibre, fulfils all those expectations that Omega replica watches connoisseurs legitimately associate with the name A. Lange & Söhne: its assets include the lavish decoration of all movement parts by hand as well as the balance wheel with eccentric poising weights and a proprietary Lange bal-ance spring.
