Can you share a video of the jumping discs on the watch with the new movement?
I have not heard of any updates from Lange regarding this. The old Zeitwerk has instantaneous jumping seconds. I believe one of the original post starter's concern was the minute disc unlock at 56th sec marker. Lange official site still shows the minute disc unlocking at the 56th second marker.
At the mean time I got curious and checked some Zetiwerk Date videos, and wow no minute disc movement, so they did some upgrades. Curious to know if the later normal Zetiwerks really don't have the minute disc "shake".

Even newer models have that solved now.
Once you send your watch in for service it will come back with the instantaneous jumping minutes- its a small adjustment that they are doing to any Zeitwerk that goes in for service in addition to new models.
Thanks to Peter
I am attaching his pic and one from Hodinkee for comparison. The article from Hodinkee is from 2014 so the picture should be one from an older movement. ...
Yes, no visible loading at all...
Hi. I don't have the watch in my house right now. Sleeping in the safe deposit ;-) but I will send you a video when I pick it up again ;-). The Lange website does not show the correct movement for the regular Zeitwerk. They are aware, but apparently not a...
