About LANG 1943

After years of dedicated service in the watchmaking sector, Georg Bartkowiak and Gerd-Rüdiger Lang (GRL) joined forces to establish LANG 1943 in the year 2022. The Swiss-made independent brand was created to offer accessible mechanical timepieces of exceptional pedigree to discerning watch enthusiasts worldwide.
Returning from retirement, Lang, inspired by his birth year „1943,“ laid the foundation for the eponymous brand. The inaugural masterpiece, Edition One, pays homage to vintage aesthetics, housing the hand-wound L43.1 caliber, a remastered version of the iconic 1960s Marvin 700 ebauche. This mechanical heart, rooted in a bygone era, exemplifies our commitment to heritage and precision engineering.
LANG 1943 draws inspiration from GRL’s illustrious contributions to the watch industry. One such innovation is the open crystal case back, a testament to GRL’s pioneering spirit. This feature allows enthusiasts to marvel at the intricate workings of mechanical movements, a hallmark of GRL’s legacy.
