New "Caliber I" in Mammoth Ivory from Lang & Heyne

When people talk shop about materials in the world of watches today, they usually mean new alloys or even silicon. But not at LANG & HEYNE in Dresden. "There's no way that I would allow such an unappealing material that is used in the mass production of computer chips to be used for my watches." This is what our master watchmaker would say in response to such talk. Quite rightly so, particularly for a top watch brand that feels a close kinship to the classic tradition of making watches by hand.

Thus our new watches have once again been inspired by historic role models. People visiting the Dresden art collection marvel at the precious carvings that even include watches completely made of ivory. What would be happen if we were to combine this elegance with the precision of a LANG & HEYNE watch? Following his idea and together with Alexander Babel, a watch enthusiast with Russian roots, our watchmakers investigated the unique features of the material and have now presented the result: the L&H "Caliber I" featuring ivory plates and bridges.
