Lang & Heyne Dresden Johann Platinum


Lang & Heyne Johann Platinum

The highly educated and artistically gifted monarch, King Johann, not only translated Dante’s “Divine Comedy” into German, but also created several literary works of his own. His diligent and innovative nature led him to examine and renew numerous aristocratic rules, leading Saxony into a period of booming economic development in the 1800s.

Like its namesake, this collection concentrates on the essentials of functionality, portraying the timeless elegance of a small second complication on its bipartite dial. Simple, elegant and straightforward, yet stunningly beautiful like the principles that drove the man.

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, double-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 platinum timepiece perfectly combines contemporary materials with classic design and rose gold hands to deliver a fresh timepiece for a unique individual.

Lang & Heyne: Tradition and Values

Tradition and value are evident in all aspects of a Lang & Heyne timepiece.  However, several highlights ensure your Lang & Heyne stands apart from its contemporaries in both style and finish.

  1. Unmistakeable: three lugs provide a stable hold for the watch strap and emphasize the vertical axis to balance it against the crown and its protective form.

  1. Detail: polished and partly flame-blued screws are a particular source of pride for Lang & Heyne. Using a fine, goat’s hair brush on domed threads and bevelled/polished heads, in-house specialists manufacture only 12 to 15 screws per day!

  1. Heritage: using a rediscovered method from the 18th and 19th century, plates, bridges and balance cocks are given a unique cover known as silver grinding which uses a stiff-bristle brush to apply a special mixture to the brass movement component resulting in a fine, grain-like surface that is then gold-plated.

  1. Hands: every attention is given to the perfection of the three-dimensional shape and fill of the hands whether they are ornate, engraved Louis-XV hands or perfectly filed/polished spade & cathedral hands, the beauty is in the detail.

  1. Precision: the balance spring is mathematically and precisely calculated to enhance every oscillation. The last coil is carefully adjusted upwards for precision by an experienced specialist in a time-consuming and exacting procedure so you reap the benefits of better timing.

  1. Solid gold: since 2016 each Lang & Heyne watch houses golden wheels with chamfered spokes combined with steel pinions to decrease friction and enhance performance.

  1. More gold: in accordance with Saxon watchmaking tradition, polished gold chatons are countersunk and screwed into the bridges and balance cocks, giving the ruby jewels a deep, fiery-red appearance. However, the crowning glory is the diamond that crowns the masterpiece, visually enhancing and protecting the tongued jewels set below and ensuring the sensitive pivot is resistant against shock.

  1. Enamel: Many models feature a pristine enamel dial, produced in several layers through a complex manufacturing process that delivers a charming, characterful result, well-suited to Lang & Heyne’s noble collection.

  1. Moustache Anchor: the anchor system is made of solid gold and operates in the lever escapement to correct the barycentre of the anchor which facilitates smoother power transmission to the balance in various positions, enhancing performance and power usage.

  1. In-house calibres: it goes without saying that this level of watchmaking and attention to detail is achieved by overseeing and steering every aspect of production. Lang & Heyne develops and uses in-house, manufactory calibres in all its timepieces.


Since the end of the 19th century in Saxony, the typical three-quarter plate has been built using state-of-the-art techniques for fine movement. Our CALIBER I is an honest tribute to this heritage, emphasizing typical elements not only of function, but also of beauty.

Big shining rubies, set in gleaming gold chatons, create a balanced contrast to the silver finished plate. Even the smallest of the stones, the one holding the lever anchor in place, is set in gold chatons and secured by deeply blued steel screws. The meticulous black, hand-polished chamfer finishing of the anchor bridge and the balance cock as well as the slit golden screws of the balance wheel creates charming reflections of light.

The ultimate in beauty, however, is the sparkling diamond that crowns the balance. It is majestically placed on top of the hand-engraved balance cock, in perfect with the elegant swan-neck fine adjustment. The balance spring is bent markedly upward in its last winding to ensure the smooth pulse of the shock-resistant gold screw balance wheel.
