A. Lange & Söhne - Zeitwerk Minute Repeater

Most desirable watches are a treat to the sight and the touch. They feel nice to hold and are captivating to behold. Occasionally a new leather band might also engage the sense of smell. Then there are those that take it to sensory overload by appealing to the sense of hearing on top of everything else. A. Lange & Söhne are venturing further into this territory with the already incredibly covetable Zeitwerk now gaining a minute repeater. I love the way the gongs have been worked into the unique shape of the Zeitwerk and are proudly displayed dial-side. And as with all Lange watches, it is just as mesmerizing from the back.
