The new ZEITWERK – Making-of

Snapshots of the assembly of our mechanical digital watch

In developing the ZEITWERK, we had to break away from many conventions – and think watchmaking in a new way. Just as unusual as this watch are the people who craft it. A small team of predominantly younger, particularly talented watchmakers has specialised in this completely new watch concept. In the following, we accompany our watchmaker Sindy during selected characteristic assembly steps of the watch.
