Now this is what a modern watch should look like. This Lang & Heyne watch is featured in a Hodinkee article here:

that's a beautiful watch - John.

Very expensive to produce some thing like this. The case is steel?

I always thought the German stuff was superior to the Swiss.

I would sure like to see what is under the dial. It looks so 'smooth' and easy on the eye.

The case holding this beautiful split second chrono is Platinum. I think they make watches for special order so you can probably order it any way you want.

Jon,

Their website lists the round case as 44mm without the crown. This is sort of the new big wristwatch standard.

Beautiful,

wonderful combination of colors, the bright gold gilt, the bright steel work, the blue screws... the jewels. Everything works together just so. Almost Art I would say!
