The 181° modifies Zeitwinkel’s classic three-hand configuration. The lancine-shaped hour and minute hands are accompanied by a large, small-seconds display with guilloché detailing and a date function at 3 o’clock.

Legibility of the date is assured by the proprietary Zeitwinkel lettering, designed for its clarity and readability, as well as the manufacture movement caliber ZW0102. Only by using a movement whose size perfectly fits the diameter of the watch, is it possible to install a perfectly positioned small-second and a far off-center, large date display. The 181° offers highly precise time measurement, a 72-hour running time and a functional crown with multi-stage sealing system and dual O-rings to ensure waterproofness. 


Driven to create a modern and functional timepiece which drew on traditional watchmaking codes, Zeitwinkel founders Maks and Peter used classic pocket-watch design references as a base from which to develop the Zeitwinkel 181°.

These details include the contrasting galvanized steel and guilloché finishing on the dial and sub-dial, and Côtes de Genève engraving on the caseback. These details work in harmony within the sizeable 42.5 mm case in stainless steel.
