Lang & Heyne Friedrich II Rose Gold
Margrave Friedrich II accepted his regal inheritance at the tender age of 13. Despite years of war and adversity he managed to consolidate the economic and political power of Saxony during his reign in the first half of the 14th century. For his achievements and contribution to society he was knighted at the age of 29 and went on to live an upright and disciplined lifestyle dedicated to his realm and his people.
Reflecting the piety of its namesake, the Friedrich II timepiece is reduced to the essentials. The double-sunk dial is made of bright white lacquer and the chamfers are diamond-polished and rhodium-plated for finesse. The concentric Art Deco numerals and oversized, eccentric second give Freidrich II a fresh, uncomplicated style. Because the movement is inserted into the case from the front side, it is possible to adopt a larger dial, further enhancing the openness of this model.
Each piece has its own appeal and is very much driven by the style preferences of its wearer.
The rose gold timepiece is perhaps the most classical with its warm tones and subtle palate. The appeal is timeless and, thanks to the precious case material its value will hold true over time as well.
