Lang & Heyne Georg Hands-On: Proudly Saxon

Postby Racer-X » April 20th 2017, 12:18am

by Ariel Adams "If our Baselworld 2017 "Top 10 Watches" list were expanded by just a few spots, the new Lang & Heyne Georg watch would have very likely made it on there. Produced by hand in Dresden by master watchmaker Marco Lang and team, the Georg is a beautifully conceived classic watch which reaffirms why we like luxury timepieces in the first place."

I'd like it better without that center lug.

Lang & Heyne makes excellent movements, but sadly, every single one of them lands up in a case with these triple lugs. Such lugs are completely impractical, and aesthetically - they suck.

The rest of this watch is really great- the movement is a work of art, and the dial layout reminds me of "doctor's watches" (exempli gratia: the Rolex Prince) of the 1930s, which usually had nearly half of the dial occupied by the oversized seconds subdial. Wish I had one of these "doctor's watches", but tomorrow, I'll be hunting for an Omega- so anything else will have to wait.

You guys are all fucking nutz. If you're paying 25 to 35 grand for a watch, what, you gonna put a fucking NATO on the thing? No, you go back to the dealer and have a cup of espresso while they put a new strap on for you.

I think I might have to go hands-on with my johnson over this wartche.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.
