The principles underlying our quality standards and esteem for watches are in-line with the high benchmarks set by the renowned Saxon court clockmakers of the 18th century. These principles guide our entire philosophy and LANG & HEYNE’s approach to watchmaking, allowing us to reinterpret extraordinary masterpieces with modern technology, con-temporary know-how and personalized attention-to-detail.
At LANG & HEYNE things such as balance wheels and gears, the ticking of a mechanical timepiece and the gleam of a perfectly polished enamel dial are what fascinate, move and inspire us. Observing and perceiving time in this traditional manner is slowly disappearing, as are the related craftsmanship skills that uphold analogue timekeeping.
Our catalogue attempts to depict, inform and explain the art of Saxon watchmaking in its most classical sense. By continuing these traditions, it is our hope that classic watchmaking will thrive for years to come.
