Why Movement Screws Cost €100 Each

Marco Lang smiles when I call him a “serious watch nerd.” Walking through the cozy manufacture space that is Lang & Heyne, between words in his native German I hear him voice in English “watch nerd” as he proudly repeats my phrase to his various watchmakers who together make up the very special Dresden-based maker of traditional timepieces. Marco Lang points to his watchmaker certificate placed on the wall of his kitchen set among others who make up the multi-generational mosaic of official-looking papers proving that he comes from a long line of like-minded micro-mechanical minds. His favorite is from the early 1920s when a female relative of his was the first woman not only to become a watchmaker in the Lang clan, but also the first female watch maker in the region.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
