A harmonious design reminiscent of pocket watches.
Our model 181° modifies the classic three hand configuration, and is reminiscent of pocket watch designs. A hand for the hour and minute respectively, are complimented by a large, small-second display and a date display at the 3 o' clock position. Even though we only utilize a single disc for the date, it is still very readable in contrast to other comparable constructions.
This is due to the appealing Zeitwinkel lettering as well as our manufacture movement caliber Zeitwinkel ZW0102. Only by using a movement whose size perfectly fits the diameter of the watch, is it possible to install a perfectly positioned small-second and a far off-center, large date display. 72 hour running time and high precision time measurement insure that a Zeitwinkel watch owner rarely needs to touch the winding crown. Actually a shame because we put a lot of work into its design as well.
Zeitwinkel is a brand of high-quality Swiss wristwatches with manufacture movements. The name is derived from a unit of measurement used to calculate the "true local time." Zeitwinkel is independent of corporate affiliation and decided to develop its own, internal solutions for movements and product design. The original source for the conception of Zeitwinkel was the desire to create an authentic and high quality product that unites people with a similar outlook on life. For the company founders, this common goal was the reason for integrating their experience from very different areas--above all their enthusiasm for "haute horology" watchmaking. Zeitwinkel can proudly stand behind the product and brand name it has become. It is constantly refining development and has no need to hide behind superficial slogans and sparkle.
