  • Catalogue Essay

    Featuring a rectangular-shaped case, the Georg collection was named after Georg the Bearded Duke of Saxony of the 16th century. Famous for playing an ambivalent role in the development of the Saxon humanism, Lang & Heyne is perhaps a perfect example of the embodiment of the Saxon mentality.

    Available in white gold, pink gold and platinum, the George displays an elegantly finished white enamel dial executed in the style of Art Deco featuring blued steel lancet hands. While the dial may look simple, it is far beyond that. Turning the watch on to its back, it is immediately noticeable that the cal. VIII 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, and its balance bridge polished with a diamond set on top. 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.

    The present example Lang & Heyne Georg in platinum with a white enamel dial with blue accents is a sight to behold. Classic and sophisticated in its execution and craftsmanship, the platinum heft is a plus to the already impressive timepiece. Numbered 8, the present timepiece is offered in excellent overall condition and complete with its full set of accessories.
