In the hand and on the wrist, irrespective of variations in movement design and engineering, the Zeitwerk remains a Lange through and through. There’s a quality of density to Lange watches – even the most simple – which doesn’t have so much to do with actual mass as it does with the sense of being in the presence of a machine that elevates machine-ness to an aesthetic virtue. One of the big joys of owning a mechanical watch – or at least, one of the potential joys – is the sense of physical connection it’s possible to feel with the mechanism. There’s a kind of kinesthetic identification with a mechanism of gears and oscillators that, in a Lange, is really dialed up thanks to the overbuilt feel of, well, everything – the case, the movement, and especially how every interaction with the watch gives the impression of having been extremely carefully thought through in order to produce an optimum, and very sensually satisfying, experience for the user.
