Lang & Heyne is hoping to turn heads at Baselworld this year with its first tourbillon watch.
High-end German independent watch brand Lang & Heyne is to continue with its art deco style and build upon one of its previous 2017 pieces, fitting it with a large tourbillon.
The 2018 Anton is said to be the big brother of the brand’s Georg watch, a rectangular art deco piece with an enamel dial. The Anton 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, which houses art deco numerals for the hour indications.
The 40mm watch comes in rose gold or platinum with a brown or blue leather strap. It is also interesting to note that the brand uses a three lug system on its cases rather than the conventional two.
The showstoppers go for €86,100 for the gold version and €98,700 for the platinum edition.
