  • Catalogue Essay

    When one thinks of Lang & Heyne, the usual feedbacks would be traditional, refined and old-school, which can be determined by the firm’s meticulous craft for fully handmade movements finished with classic Saxon aesthetics. However, recently in 2021, the firm released a surprise to collectors by launching their first ever sports wristwatch in stainless steel with an integrated bracelet, showcasing new directions undertaken by the firm.

    Featuring a 40mm diameter 1970s inspired style stainless steel case, the Hektor was released with three dial options, green, grey and blue. With refined aesthetics, the dial features a “petticoat” pattern in the center with concentric groves for the chapter ring as well as applied markers in the same “petticoat” shaped filled with Super-Luminova. A charming sports watch finished with extreme precision and attention to detail, an aperture below the center of the dial reveals a small part of the inner workings of the cal. 33.2 developed by Uhren-Werke-Dresden. With impressive movement architecture, signature to the firm, it showcases a high level and variety of polishing and brushing used to decorate each gear and bridge. All frame parts and driving train wheels are made of Arcap, a non-magnetic material with a very special sheen when polished.

    Offered at auction for the very first time, the present example Lang & Heyne Hektor with a grey dial is offered in “like new” overall condition and complete with its full set of accessories. With the ever-growing rise in interest for quality sports watches, the present Lang & Heyne Hektor is certainly one that does not disappoint.
