Fourteen years after the introduction of our initial Van der Gang watch, the ‘Original’, Van der Gang Watches launches its successor: the 20052. This new and updated design by Wybe Van der Gang perfectly portraits the change Van der Gang Watches has gone through over the past years. The new model, inspired by our Original, is a blend of innovative technique and perfectly balanced design. Resulting in a contemporary classic straight from the start.
The 20052 with its 41mm case is produced with the utmost precision from a solid lump of high quality stainless steel enabling a perfect fit around the wearer’s wrist. During the development of the 20052 we’ve explicitly focussed on the request of our clients to develop a watch with a considerably lower case. The case, its spherical sapphire glass and curved dial result in a balanced and sleek design, perfectly characterising the Van der Gang philosophy. Because of this the 20052 has become the perfect dress-watch within the Van der Gang family.
The silver-plated dial, based on our Original, has its date indicated on its dial by a separate hand. The automatic movement with its in-house developed complications also elegantly displays the day of the week and the month. In addition, a chronograph complication showing seconds and minutes was added. The combination of the colours red and blue on the dial give the 20052 a contemporary feel despite its classic design.
We believe that the design of the 20052 matches the concept of a modern gentleman. The elegantly shaped design, with its immaculate eye for detail and its characteristic look and feel give this watch a subtle yet very distinctive appearance. The 20052 seems unique without effort. It offers distinctiveness without conspicuousness. Subtle, modest and yet extraordinary. A different perspective on time.
