Marco Lang, the master watchmaker based in Dresden, Germany presents Zweigesicht, a new watch collection launched under his eponymous luxury watch brand.
Marco Lang was the co-founder of Lang & Heyne watch manufacture. In 2001, in partnership with Mirko Heyne, he founded Lang & Heyne. In 2002, Heyne left the company and in 2013, Lang sold the majority of his shares to an investor. In 2019, Lang left Lang & Heyne and in 2020 he founded a new watch atelier in Dresden. Zweigesicht is the debut watch from Atelier Marco Lang.
Zweigesicht is a dual face watch. One side features a silver-plated dial with three centre hands (hour, minute and seconds) and Roman numeral hour markers. On the other side, it displays an eye-catching skeleton dial that allows the view of finely decorated movement.
Limited to 18 pieces, the Zweigesicht watch is available in three case variations: stainless steel, 18 ct rose gold and platinum. Measuring 40mm diameter, the specially constructed watch case maintains a slender profile despite the large 34mm movement beating inside. While wearing, the owner can chose any of the two dials by simply changing the strap attachment.
For this timepiece, Marco-Lang created a special movement, which stands out with flying bridges made of hardened steel. The free four legged balance with gold excenters is inspired by the shape of a Gothic church window. The two series-connected barrels ensure an impressive power reserve of approximately 70 hours.
On the first dial, three centre hands display the time. This white silver-plated dial features a Guilloche middle part with “Clous de Paris” decoration.
The second additional hand mechanism of the movement drives the hours and minutes on a skeletonized, translucent “grand feu” enameled dial. The first dial features pencil hands in blued steel or rose gold where as the second dial features cathedral hands in blued steel.
