Zeitwerk Luminous AKA Phantom
 
I was lucky enough to go on a factory visit last year.
Robert Hoffman, Head of Zeitwerk was our guide. His passion and love for the brand really brought the tour to life and of course we spent a good deal of time in the Zeitwerk department - an amazing piece. That started the hunt which ended yesterday with the arrival of this beauty. Lots more photos to come.

Met Hoffman previously. Despite being head of Zeitwerk, he was wearing a Datograph.

Congrats on an awesome incoming.
Now you just need a luminous Lange 1 to complete the trio.

BigAppleBill 25 February 2020 10:50 PM

Wow! The lumen puts an already cool reference on another level. Congrats!

sgfortino 26 February 2020 12:12 AM

Wow! Gorgeous. Congrats.

Absolutely spectacular watch and one of my favorites. Congratulations on the acquisition. How long does the loom last?

So nice! I recently picked up the wg/black dial version.

GreenLantern 26 February 2020 01:18 PM

My goodness. Congrats, and enjoy in good health!

I never see these come up. Sad that I missed out on the opportunity to get one new forever ago.

Outstanding!

Very cool!

:OMG::OMG::OMG:
Stunning and jaw dropping, I didn't even know a lumen ZEITWERK existed, congratulations!

Russell996 27 February 2020 10:28 PM

Series of 3 photos showing the speed of change, these are not slow motion but are taken using burst mode of 10 shots (I believe 10 images in 0.5 second) so these 3 shots cover 0.1 seconds. You can see the second hand has barely moved.

If I owned this watch there would be a dramatic reduction in my productivity because I’d be constantly staring at the minutes changing. “...wait for it...wait for it...cool...”
