Lang & Heyne Heinrich White Gold
Justice and dignity marked Heinrich’s III reign during 1200s – what was known as the age of the knighthood. Living up to his nick-name “Illustre” (the brilliant), he hosted large celebrations and tournaments to showcase his power and affinity with chivalry.
Lang & Heyne’s Heinrich has a stately appearance covering its complex and beautiful internal mechanism. Fine Roman numerals feature around the outer bezel on the frosted, solid silver dial. The inner dial displays both a power reserve indicator and prograde date with both grace and elegance. An optional extra on this timepiece is an additional hinged lid over the sapphire crystal case back reminiscent of vintage fob watches.
Another special aspect of the in-house Calibre V is the filigree second remontoir which has an additional tack – giving 5 beats & intermediate winding every second.
As with all Lang & Heyne watches, Heinrich presents impressive complications in a clutter-free manner that are, quite simply, a joy to behold and great pleasure to wear.
The white gold Heinrich is clean and easy-to-read. This piece is perfectly suited to all occasions and will appeal to the modernist.
