      more details
With a classical, symmetrical division of the dial, we combine in our watch-model "Moritz" all the calendar functions of a full calendar. The solid silver dial is, according to the tradition, pickled white and then dyed champagne.

The moon disc as well as the earth disc is cut in gold and enameled with the technique "Champlevé".

Above the crown, the date, the month and the declination can be changed rapidly. Two sunk-in correctors serve as the regulation of the moon phase and the day of the week.

As with the other models of LANG & HEYNE, the model "Moritz" is available in three different gold colours (white, yellow and rose gold) and with different hand variations.

We make three variations of the earth disc, one for the European/African, one for the Asian/Australian and one for the American viewpoint.

VARIATION I

alligator leather strap with buckle in 18 ct gold,

VARIATION III

A serial number is assigned to every watch marked both on the dial and on the movement. This makes every watch from LANG & HEYNE to a unique specimen.
#ANSICHT#
Declination
- a new indication in watches

From what do the seasons with different lengths of night and day result? The indications of sunrise and sunset and the equation are well known. It is the changing angle of the sun's rays onto the surface of the earth that forms the basis of these indications. The inclination of the axis of the earth to the ecliptic of 23 degrees and the orbiting of the earth around the sun are the causes of the sun's rays impinging sometimes more on the northern hemisphere, sometimes more on the southern hemisphere.

Deklination - Indication of the sun angle

For the first time, LANG & HEYNE has made it possible to indicate directly the degree of the sun to the equator at midday. This suggestion made by one of our customers and a watch enthusiast (Nikolaus Garnreiter - Ulm/Donau). The earth disc which oscillates during the seasons is controlled by a programme disc where the value of the degree of the declination is accurately stored.
