Dear all, hope you will like my little photo report.
In the pitoresk city of Dokkum with the old City Hall ..
... and the atmosphere of ancient times ...
... you can find the domestic of Van der Gang Watches, located in an old school building.
Clearly an English (international) name for a Dutch company.
Inside the old school one can feel and experience the beautiful designed and clean rooms. Every detail has the master's touch.
Meet the master, Mr. Wybe van der Gang.
We were invited to test the normal case on the left and the extra hardened case on the right (Van der Gang's own development)
After dropping the cases multiple times, one can clearly see the dings on the normal case.
Where the extra hardened case is still looking brand new.
The room in which the movement plates are designed and produced.
Every process is done by computerized machinery.
Van der Gang parts were showcased in every room. Here's a picture of the date pointer.
The polishing room for the last touch by hand.
All tubes and pipes.
Drilling of the holes in the side of the case.
The watchmaker's workbench.
And the Van der Gang masterpiece: Complication Moon.
Retail price appr. 14,000 Euros.
Special thanks to Mr. Van der Gang who gave me exclusive permission to take pictures and to Gerrie and Natasja for the warm and friendly welcome and their attention. For an overview of the entire collection please visit www.vandergangwatches.nl
