The ZEITWERK HANDWERKSKUNST was produced in a limited series of 30 watches and features a beautifully elaborate tremblage engraving. Preceded by the original Zeitwerk series, the limited edition series has a similar movement designed around the triple jumping disc system. Not only does the movement operate jumping hours, but it also carries the mechanism into the minutes allowing all the digits to change instantaneously and read like a digital clock.
