German brand Lang & Heyne a member of the AHCI, has created the Anton, his first tourbillon. It is named after the Saxon King “Anthony the Kind”. 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.
The form movement is the German manual-wind Lang & Heyne in-house caliber IX with flying tourbillon. It has 17 jewels, 18,000 vph and a power reserve of 55 hours.
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.
It comes on a dark blue or brown alligator leather strap with shark leather lining, and an 18kt white or rose gold folding clasp. The Lang & Heyne Anton Flying Tourbillon will be first showcased at Baselworld 2018.
