Introduction

Famed for their classical dress watches, Dresden-based watchmaker Lang & Heyne are renowned for their impeccable craftsmanship, attention to detail and traditional aesthetic. Taking those tenets forward into the latest era of watchmaking, Lang & Heyne released their stainless steel sports watch, the Hektor in 2021 which spoke to current market trends and expanded Lang & Heyne’s offering in a new way that departs from the brand’s comfort zone. Made of stainless steel and sporting an integrated bracelet, the Hektor remains unique and refined in its styling as it fails to fall under the 1970’s inspired sports watch design language that has become all the rage throughout the industry. With its rounded case, the Hektor retains Lang & Heyne’s classical aesthetic, which is only compounded by its elegantly styled dial. Featuring a blend of textures, this limited edition collection of 99 pieces comes boasting one of three dial variants; dark blue, dark green and medium grey (33 pieces for each of the 3 dial variants). With luminescent cathedral hands and applied hour markers, the Hektor’s dial is refined and traditional, in keeping with the brand’s known aesthetic. With an aperture at 6 o’clock, the Hektor also shines a light on its beautifully finished manual-wind movement, the UWD cal. 33.2, from Uhren-Werke-Dresden, a sister company of Lang & Heyne. On display behind a sapphire crystal caseback, it features an array of bridges, anglage, various surface textures and polished bevels and countersinks. A fantastically made timepiece, the Hektor puts Lang & Heyne’s stamp on stainless steel sports timepieces in a manner that few other watchmakers could quite pull off.

THE DIAL

Boasting a stepped profile, the Hektor's beautiful green dial features a "petticoat" pattern in its centre, which is reflected by the shape of its appied hour markers. Furthermore, it sports a concentric pattern along its hour chapter ring which is contrasting again by the smooth minute track that encircles it.

THE MOVEMENT

Produced by Lang & Heyne's sister company, UWD, the manual-wind cal. 33.2 is finished immaculately with an array of high-end finishing techniques such as countersunk screws, beautiful anglage, polished bridges and gears and a stunning baseplate.

Our Perspective

Extending Lang & Heyne's refined aesthetic into the pantheon of stainless steel sports watches, the Hektor remains rooted in the watchmaker's classical design DNA while simultaneously expanding into new territory with its multi-textured dial, integrated bracelet and stainless steel case and bracelet.
