  • Catalogue Essay

    Featuring a rectangular-shaped case, the Anton collection was named after Anthony The Kind, King of Saxony of the 18th century. Governed with cautiousness, tolerance and compassion during his time, hence the people called him “The Kind.

    Debuted in 2018 with much resemblance to its elder sibling the Lang & Heyne Georg that embodies the elegant rectangular-shaped case with a gentle curve to gently fits the wearer’s wrist, the Lang & Heyne Anton fitted with a flying tourbillon was first available in 18K pink gold and platinum. Sophisticatedly finished with a bright white Grand Feu enamel dial executed with the style of Art Deco numerals, the edges and contours are framed with the classic chemin de fer tracks with blue accents and reveals a sunken aperture of the delicate tourbillon cage at 6 o’clock, a generous display allowing an unobstructed view of the regulating organ of the Anton. Furthermore, the lancet hands are finished with blued-steel to match the diamond accent at 3, 9 and 12.

    Turning the watch on to its back, it is immediately noticeable that the golden cal. IX is no ordinary movement. Displaying incredible craftsmanship, each component from the balance bridge to each individual blued stainless steel screw is made entirely in-house. The winding wheels feature double snailed finish with polished chamfers that is truly pleasing. Considering that the workshop produces not more than 15 screws a day, it is hard to believe the amount of time Lang & Heyne uses to create an entire wristwatch.

    Appreciating the beauty of the timepiece, the connoisseur will notice the intriguing engraving between the lugs at 12 o’clock. Without a trace of any hallmarks on the case, to a surprise the present example is cased in stainless steel and according to Lang & Heyne, only 3 pieces in steel were ever made. Preserved in absolutely stunning condition, this Anton is certainly one of the rarest of all.
