  • Catalogue Essay

    Distinct for its rectangular silhouette, the Lang & Heyne Georg collection was dedicated to Georg the Bearded, Duke of Saxony of the 16th Century. Famed for playing a pivotal role in opposing the Protestant Reformation and beloved by his subjects for being a just and fair ruler, the present model is perhaps a perfect wristwatch that embodies the German aristocrat’s harmonious ideals and balanced proportions.

    Available in white gold, pink gold and platinum, the Georg features an elegantly finished white enamel dial executed in the Art Deco flair. While the dial is clean and crisp, it conceals the mechanical prowess of the timepiece, allowing only its wearer to admire the cal. VIII via its sapphire caseback. An extraordinary movement that powers the watch, 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 is polished with a diamond set above. Considering that the workshop produces not more than 15 screws a day, it is hard to imagine how much time is required for Lang & Heyne to build an entire wristwatch.

    The present example in pink gold is numbered 28, offered in excellent overall condition and is complete with its full set of accessories consigned by the original owner.
