Lang & Heyne are specialized in making small series of high end watches with typical German handcraft and tradition stemming back from the 19th century. inspired by the classic Lange & Söhne and similar pocket watches.
It was a great experience to spend time with them and I feel honored to have been given the opportunity to learn from such masters of watchmaking.
Mr Marco Lang, one of the two founders of the brand, was very humble and helpful during my time there and I was given the chance to learn about the whole process of making the watches. From the creative process in computerized CAD-programs to the production of the raw parts and the finishing. It's not an easy thing to get the finishing right and the Germans were very strict, so only perfect is ok. I can tell you that I got a little frustrated more than one time in the process. But without training you will never reach a perfect result in the end and I am the type that will continue training until I get it flawless. First I will show some pictures of the parts I did the finishing on and after that I will show some of the extraordinary watches they make at Lang & Heyne.
