Marco Lang leaving Lang & Heyne ... all rumors and speculation

 By: williebegoode : March 28th, 2019-04:03
In 'Deployant' Peter Chong noted that Jens Schneider is taking over L&H and wants to use the type of rounded bridges Marco developed in the Georg in the rounded models. It's pure speculation as to what Marco Lang will be doing, but he's been working w...  

Subtle...but there

There's a certain style, Redcorals, that's far closer than apparent at first blush. In your mind's eye, rotate the UWD so that the crown at the same angle as the Caliber VIII. Not identical, but artwork by the same artists. (BTW, I mislabeled it as VII in...  

Idea might be the same

but style and execution is very very different. Thanks for pointing it out though.

Just a slight correction if I may politely point out

It is A. Lange & Sohne of Glashutte.

Söhne is German for son.

Willie was suggesting if Marco were to work his father, Rolf Lang, then the company could be called Lang & Sohne but this one being based in Dresden. That’s where the irony/confusion would come into play. Notice the “e” missing of this Lang surname? ... 

Oooooooooooooooooh. [nt]

Love L&H watches....

Sad at least for me to see these type of indi guys like Peter Speake-Marin leaving their original companies. Now both L and H have left Lang and Heyne.

Apparently the Rolf Lang Dresden GmbH has been shut down in January 2019

Translation of German Source Saso reference

From Northdata... "Rolf Lang Dresden GmbH, Bad Gottleuba-Berggießhübel, Am Alten Königsberg 20, 01816 Bad Gottleuba-Berggießhübel. If only one liquidator is appointed, he represents the company alone. If several liquidators are appointed, the company will... 

Rolf Lang Dresden Not Shut Down

I talked with a rep from Rolf Lang Dresden and the notice by Saso (re: north data) was about the "liquidation" of a business relationship with some Russian company; not the company.

Quite unlikely

 By: saso : March 31st, 2019-07:51
Company relationships are not part of the "Handelsregister" except it is a subsidiary company, which is unlikely as the "Rolf Lang Dresden GmbH" is clearly named. Also the "Elektronischer Bundesanzeiger" clearly states regarding the Rolf Lang Dresden GmbH... 

Rolf Lang had two businesses...only one closed.

 By: williebegoode : April 2nd, 2019-08:34
I contacted Lang, and his rep. told me that they did indeed liquidate one of his businesses. He still has one left; so Saso, you were right; one business was liquidated. I didn't know he had two, but he's certainly in business still... wonder what will be... 

Marco developed the bridges?...

That may amuse Christian Klings. Cheers, pplater.

Thank you...

PPlater, for pointing out who previously has done the original work.

Hello David!...

 By: pplater : May 17th, 2019-10:04
Is all well in your universe? Credit where credit is due, don’t you think? None more so than in respect of your own work, which is exquisite by any measure. Cheers, pplater.

I am currently working on Azur, a new pocket watch with 2 barrels, crown winding and setting, it will have a silver engine turned dial with a Tantalum case and display back and it will have my unique shaped wheel cocks that others have copied and yes ther... 

The Flip-Over Watch

Check out MarcoLangWatches dot com . It's a watch that can be worn with either side up ... depending on whether you feel like looking at the dial or movement.
