Zeitwinkel 273° Saphir fumé 2020

Zeitwinkel is an independent Swiss watch manufacturer that has been producing high-quality timepieces with its own automatic manufacture movements in Bernese Jura since 2006. The brand name is derived from a measure for calculating the “true local time”.
Right from the start, Zeitwinkel decided to develop independent solutions for watch movements and product design. The model design does not follow short-term fashion trends, but is so timeless and of high quality that our watches can also accompany future generations.
A Zeitwinkel watch stands for “Real Swiss Made” because all the movement components are actually manufactured in the Swiss Jura. Every movement and watch is assembled by hand in our studio and regulated in five positions.

Rotating date display (only the right disc).
In DIM Sunset Mode, the face behaves like DIM off during the day.
Exact switching between day and night, only in night mode with Color.
Made with Photoshop, encoded in WatchMaker.

273° Saphir fumé: full transparency
Thanks to its subtly toned dial made from extremely hard sapphire glass, the Zeitwinkel 273° «saphir fumé» is intriguingly beautiful to behold. Our flagship model reveals the elegant automatic manufacture movement with its patented large date mechanism as well as the elaborately decorated front side of the mechanism. A power reserve indicator completes the dial.
For the first time, the elaborate big date module and other areas of our own Zeitwinkel manufacture movement ZW0103 with its interplay of light and shadows in the decoration can be observed at work through the sapphire dial. The complex manufacturing process of the dial, consisting of twenty different steps, means we can only make a limited number of these watches with a list price of CHF 14,500.

Simply expressive
The Zeitwinkel 273° Saphir fumé features besides a classic time display, two additional functions that add value to everyday life. One hand for each the hours and the minutes gives you a quick view of the current time. An especially large small-second, which can be fabricated in this manner only using a movement that has been adapted especially to the size of the watch, also allows the measurement of shorter periods. The second hand also shows, even at just a glance, that your watch is running perfectly. The length of the hands was coordinated precisely to the minute markers and the indexes that are located at intervals of five minutes. The seconds display confidently rests at the 6 o’ clock position without distracting the owner of the Zeitwinkel 273° Saphir fumé from reading the time.
The noteworthy feature of the Zeitwinkel 273° Saphir fumé is found at the 11 o’ clock position. A large, easily readable date display shows the day of the month made possible by our ZW0103 manufactory movement. It reliably moves to the next day at exactly midnight; the date display only needs to be corrected in months with fewer than 31 days. To be able to install the large date display in this unusual yet functionally logical position, the date mechanism had to be completely redeveloped. We have received a patent for this construction. The Zeitwinkel 273° Saphir fumé has a power reserve indicator located between the 1 o’clock and 2 o’clock positions. In normal use, the automatic winding mechanism in the caliber ZW0103 manufacture movement reliably keeps the watch wound. This display is very useful, as it shows how long your watch will continue running reliably.
