Albeit less famous than cycle ones, rectangular-formed watches are amazingly entrancing and express a distinctive tastefulness on the wrist.
It is the situation of the new Georg from Lang & Heyne, an autonomous watchmaker situated in Dresden and established in 2001 by Marco Lang and Mirko Heyne.
The name of the model – Georg – is here an accolade for Georg the Bearded, Duke of Saxony and leader of the locale in the sixteenth Century.
The case – 40 mm long, 32 mm wide and 9.4 mm thick – is marginally curved to all the more likely fit the wrist. It outlines a valuable white polish dial with dark Art Deco numerals, blue accents and a monster measured erratic second sub dial which appears to comment the significance of each single second.
Highlighting triple hauls, a distinctive quality of all Lang & Heyne models, the Georg is available in rose gold with blued hands, in white gold with rose gold hands and, at long last, in platinum with blued steel hands.
The rear reveals the interesting design of the hand-wound Caliber VIII which beats at 18,000 vibrations each hour (2.5 Hz) and offers a force reserve of 55 hours.
Every detail of this movement is visible, including the finely completed golden wheels, the avant-garde steel extensions and cocks with domed top and the enormous cleaned stone subsets which catch and mirror light in every viewing point.
Completed by a crocodile calfskin tie with pin clasp or collapsing catch, the Lang & Heyne Georg has costs (before charge) of Euro 26,410 in rose gold, Euro 27,830 in white gold, and Euro 33,490 in platinum. lang-und-heyne.de
