Aaaahh, I completely understand your regret…
I personally would go for the „simple“ Black dial with the improved movement or the date version (where I appreciate the higher PR).

One of the greatest regrets in my collecting career
Was selling the Lange Striking Time Zeitwerk I owned for three years. I have this self imposed rule that if a watch doesn’t get wrist time it has to go. My lifestyle at the time dictated a more formal dress code and I moved a few casual and sport pieces, ...
If you’ve got the wrist-size to handle, go for the ZW-date. The quintuple switch at midnight is magical ...
You can correct this mistake.
And you can comfort yourself with the fact that a new purchase also makes real sense, since you will then benefit from the technical improvements of the new model. ☺️ Best Thomas
Didn't know you have this one!
Great watch!! 72 hours PR due to a new twin-barrel movement if I remember correctly? Many congrats for this beauty! Best Thomas
"Fractional preloading" eliminated...
That's the term sometimes used to describe it. It refers to the tiny "jump" (slight movement) that you'd see in the minute discs at about 55 seconds past each minute. You might've noticed it. Amusingly, it drove some people crazy. The more recent Zeitwerk...
Nope, that has been asked to Lange & S
The company will not or cannot modify the existing caliber. On the other hand the issue of the pre jump is so small and hardly noticeable, that it is not really worth it. And only the people who do NOT own a Zeitwerk, talk about it. George
I don't know whether only people talk about such topics who don't own a Zeitwerk. I can only speak for myself. I am very interested in the Zeitwerk concept and would like to buy a Lange ZW, too. May I then - from your point of view - think about the assoc...
I agree in most cases
But with the Zeitwerk a bit extra helps fill up the void in the dial. Both the date and striking time models seem perfect to me. Well the new Minute Repeater in blue is actually perfect. But at a cool half a million usd it might as well not exist
A tru watch lover
You are a great watch lover afaleh. I hope you can find the perfect Zeitwerk. I know how a watch love can be. I am reunited. I work also with self imposed rules. So i find the peaces where i be happy with. I go to look at some watches today, and a bunch w...
Your regret is entirely understandable
The ZW Striking Time was the rare watch that I knew I wanted before I ever saw (or heard) it in person and even though I knew it'd look abnormally large on my wrist. As others have said, Lange also did a fantastic job with the ZW Date. I'd have a hard tim...
I hope so
Actually would like to get the same exact one I sold, you never know
Interesting color, changes the personality of the watch
I sympathize, and can I ask a favor?
Selling a watch for whatever reason, no matter your intentions, can create regrets, as you say. But all who “chimed in” on this thread clearly have a love for this watch using both digital and hands to display the time. Do you have any images you could co...
Would love to
Unfortunately that and the below image are all I have. Will keep looking though I really miss that watch ...
