Lang & Heyne loves to make elegant traditional timepieces using time honored techniques handed down from their forefathers and master watchmakers. As an artisanal Independent Watchmaking company, the watchmakers are in their element and most happy when at the bench working on one of their lovely creations.
Lang & Heyne was begun in 2003 by two talented watchmakers, Marco Lang & Mirko Heyne, after only a year developing and making their first few watches, Mirko left to pursue other avenues in the watch industry, and Marco remained where his heart lead him. Since then Marco has created some of the most elegant timepieces, using fired enamel dials and classic designs within his interpretations of a wristwatch for the current times. In 2019 Marco left to pursue again a solo career, satisfied he had built a company and legacy worthy of a 5th generation Dresden based watchmaker. Large diameter watches by traditional standards, at 43.5mm and a bit bigger, until his release now over 5 years ago of the Konrad at 39.4mm, has enabled Marco to design watches with a presence, yet still keep elegant lines and classic proportions with regards to balance and symmetry. Since then, in 2018 a departure, with the release of the model Georg cased in a rectangular frame with a stunning black polish bar cocks new caliber VIII.
The in-house calibers are all finished in the traditional Saxon method, which stems from early English pocket watches. A guilt frosted finish on the plates and bridges, together with a hand engraved balance cock. The elegant and traditional swans neck fine regulateur for the balance wheel, black polished cap for the escape wheel jewel & screwed gold chatons finish off these beautiful movements.
