Lang & Heyne - Georg

| 1 Comment
Although less popular than round ones, rectangular-shaped watches are extremely fascinating and express a distinctive elegance on the wrist.

It is the case of the new Georg from Lang & Heyne, an independent watchmaker based in Dresden and founded in 2001 by Marco Lang and Mirko Heyne.

The name of the model - Georg - is here a tribute to Georg the Bearded, Duke of Saxony and ruler of the region in the 16th Century.

The case - 40 mm long, 32 mm wide and 9.4 mm thick - is slightly curved to better fit the wrist. It frames a precious white enamel dial with black Art Deco numerals, blue accents and a giant sized eccentric second sub dial which seems to remark the importance of each single second.

Featuring triple lugs, a distinctive trait of all Lang & Heyne models, the Georg is available in rose gold with blued hands, in white gold with rose gold hands and, finally, in platinum with blued steel hands.

The back side reveals the fascinating architecture of the hand-wound Calibre VIII which beats at 18,000 vibrations per hour (2.5 Hz) and offers a power reserve of 55 hours.

Every detail of this movement is visible, including the finely finished golden wheels, the avant-garde steel bridges and cocks with domed top and the large polished stone countersinks which capture and reflect light in every viewing angle.

Completed by an alligator leather strap with pin buckle or folding clasp, the Lang & Heyne Georg has prices (before tax) of Euro 26,410 in rose gold, Euro 27,830 in white gold, and  Euro 33,490 in platinum.
