Lang & Heyne is hoping to turn heads at Baselworld this year with its first tourbillon piece.
German independent, Lang & Heyne is a brand in Dresden city that makes ultra-high end traditional timepieces. This time around for 2018, the company has continued with its art deco style and built upon a previous 2017 piece, this time fitting it with a large tourbillon.
The 2018 Anton is said to be the big brother of Lang’s Georg timepiece, a rectangular art deco piece with an enamel dial. The Anton however replaces the oversized subdial on the Georg for a tourbillon.
The Caliber IX in the Anton accounts for the central hours and minutes, as well as seconds on the exposed cage. The movement also allows for 55 hours of autonomy and the huge flying minute tourbillon revealed at the 6 o’clock position.
These functions sit on the white Grand Feu enamel dial, of which houses art deco numerals for the hour indications.
The 40mm piece comes in rose gold or platinum with a brown or blue leather strap. It is also interesting to note, the brand uses a three lug system on its cases rather than the conventional two.
The Basel-showstoppers go for €86,100 for the gold and €98,700 for the platinum.
