Special designs


THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE for the watchmakers of LANG & HEYNE consists of creating and realizing their own ideas. Sometimes, friends and watch enthusiasts inspire particularly unusual watches and mechanics. These ideas are developed further and improved in cooperation with LANG & HEYNE and thus, unique pieces are created for the great pleasure of future owners. In addition to the wide knowledge of various traditional manufacturing methods, LANG & HEYNE also have the expertise of today’s making and process engineering.

Computer-based constructions, state-of-the-art CNC-technology with 1/1000 mm accuracy, but also the appropriate measurement and control technology is used to develop ideas into prototypes and eventually into complete watches.

AUGUSTUS I - precious memories

Special anniversaries and events combined with a MEMORY FUNCTION will be displayed mechanically for the owner. The idea and impetus of such a wristwatch-sized calculation machine is again based on one of our customers.

Planned as a special development and unique piece for the inventor, this masterpiece now enriches the LANG & HEYNE collection.


CHAMPLEVÈ - Great moments

Model variation “JOHANN - CHAMPLEVÈ” impressively demonstrate living enamel. Scarcely any other material gives the dial of a fine watch such a persuasive and charming character. Since its establishment, LANG & HEYNE has worked with real fired white enamel.

An 18th trinket box with starry sky inspired Marco Lang to design the colourful dial.


IVORY CALIBER I - 10,000 years of history

The plates and bridges are made of mammoth ivory in this limited edition. Inspired by historic role models within the Dresden art collection, an extraordinary idea arose: the LANG & HEYNE CALIBER I featuring ivory plates and bridges.

The fine structure and creamy white color of the ivory match perfectly with the finely manufactured metal work pieces. Of course, we do not wish to harm any elephants. The tusk used for the limited series of 25 watches comes from a mammoth that died more than 10,000 years ago with its tusk surviving in the Russian permafrost soil.


Individualized watches

In additition to special models like the AUGUSTUS and the CHAMPLEVÈ we from LANG & HEYNE also create special customized variation of each of our models. Whether extraordinary hand-engravings, stocking precious stones or changing the design… there is almost nothing that prevents us from creation your personal LANG & HEYNE watch.
