Lang & Heyne Albert White Gold
As son of King Johann, Albert received the best education and training that later helped him fulfil his role as prince and ruler. As General of the Army, he proved his military skills and after ascending to the throne in 1873, he contributed immensely to the social structure and development of Saxony. His 30-year reign took place during the time of industrialisation that saw Saxony become a heavyweight on the global stage.
In his honour, Lang & Heyne developed its column wheel chronograph with centred chronograph hands and specially formed monopusher. The Albert collection is clear and restrained with an element of classicism thanks to the Roman numerals and spade hands. Packed with power and armed with timekeeping information, Albert is set to dominate well into the future, undated and ready for action.
This collection features three case materials: massive 18ct rose gold, massive 18ct white gold and 950 platinum. Further distinction is made by the dial colour which can be either pristine white, simple-sunk enamel or solid silver, galvanic black.
Each piece has its own appeal and is very much driven by the needs and preferences of its wearer.
The white gold timepiece is crisp and understated. This piece is perfectly suited to all occasions and will hold its appeal and value for many generations to come.
