With a diameter of almost 40mm, KONRAD has been specially created to be worn on a small wrist. The date indication fits harmonically in the timeless Arabic dial.

When the end of the month arrives, the date hand jumps spiritedly over the LANG & HEYNE lettering back to the first day of the new month. Due to the complicated constant force mechanism, the delicate central second hand moves STEP BY STEP each second and reflects the high accuracy of the Caliber V movement.

Caliber V

Lang & Heyne Calibre V

The fourth movement presented by LANG & HEYNE shows another look at its ancestors. The gracile shape of the trigonal bridge is revealing:

Solid gold chamfered spokes wheels, the huge balance with the characteristic LANG & HEYNE design, the fine moustache anchor and last but not least the exciting highlight of the CALIBER V, the mechanism of the constant force. It is positioned on the escapement wheel, the last part of the wheel train, and it ensures that the balance receives the same force bit by bit. This compensates for the mainspring’s irregular force-curve and tolerances of the wheel train.

The result is a constant amplitude of the balance and enhanced accuracy during the entire running time. The complicated lever mechanism of the prograde (forward jumping) date indication is positioned under the dial and is invisible to the eyes.
