Lang & Heyne Georg Platinum
A true love story. Georg, Duke of Saxony in the late 1400s/early 1500s, so grieved the loss of his wife Barbara that he grew a beard after her death and wore it to his grave. His act of devotion earned him the pet-title “Georg the Bearded”. After his ascension at the age of 17 he adopted a strict attitude to morality which continued throughout his long reign. Hi leadership was unswerving, clear and direct during a time of change.
Lang & Heyne’s Georg collection epitomises this uncompromising dedication to clarity through its clean lines and edges, demonstrating the beauty and elegance of a rectangular case on the wrist. The case itself is slightly curved to hug the wrist without compromising its linear appeal. Additional features such as an oversized small second and silky enamel dial set this timepiece far ahead of its peers in both aesthetics and functionality.
The stunning, hand-crafted, in-house Calibre VIII movement is a beauty in its own right. Its open structure showcases the flame-bled screws, golden wheels, diamond feature on the balance and sunken ruby jewels.
In terms of form, design, fit and functionality Georg is one of our absolute favourites and definitely deserves a place in any collection.
The beautiful Georg collection features three case materials: massive 18ct rose gold, massive 18ct white gold and 950 platinum.
Each piece has its own appeal and is very much driven by the style choices of its wearer.
Platinum Georg perfectly combines contemporary materials with classic design. The addition of flame-blued hands affords a pristine, subtle aesthetic. The warm colours of the movement, which can be seen via the generous sapphire exhibition case back, are strikingly framed by the crisp silver of the platinum case.
