Following its first rectangular watch, the Georg model introduced last year, German brand Lang & Heyne is now expanding the line with the Anton, its first tourbillon model.
Named after the Saxon King “Anthony the Kind” (1755-1836), the new model comes in a rose gold or platinum case - 40 mm long, 32 mm wide and 9.4 mm thick - which is slightly curved to better fit the wrist. Featuring double sapphire crystals, it offers water resistance to 30 metres / 100 feet.
Characterized by black Art Deco numerals, blue accents and steel blued or gold hands, the white Grand Feu enamel dial has a large opening at 6 o’clock for the tourbillon cage (11.1 mm) which also indicates seconds. The balance features solid gold screws and eccentric adjustment.
The form movement is the hand-wound manufacture calibre IX with 17 jewels and 2 brilliant-cut diamonds. Beating at 18,000 vibrations per hour, it offers a power reserve of 55 hours. Thanks to the lightness of the tourbillon cage, the power demand is reduced to the minimum.
Matched to a brown or dark blue alligator leather strap with shark leather lining, and a white or rose gold folding clasp, the Lang & Heyne Anton Flying Tourbillon will be first showcased at Baselworld 2018. Prices: Euro 86,100 in rose gold and Euro 98,700 in platinum. lang-und-heyne.de
