Watches and Wonders 2015: A. Lange & Söhne new Saxonia models

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

A. Lange & Söhne enriches the recently reworked SAXONIA family with two new models. What these classic three-hand watches with 37-millimetre cases in white or pink gold have in common is the noble grey dial. Both versions are available exclusively in the 16 A. Lange & Söhne boutiques worldwide.


The 37-millimetre SAXONIA in pink gold and white gold with a grey dial

For more than 20 years, the SAXONIA has been a permanent part of the Saxon manufactory’s repertoire. The continually broadened spectrum ranges from the elegant two-hand watch to models with refined calendar and chronograph functions. In January, at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) trade fair in Geneva, A. Lange & Söhne presented the modified dial design of the SAXONIA family for the first time. A newly developed minute scale gives the dial a lucid and harmonious aura. Twinbaton appliques at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock as well as slightly extended minute markers add prominence to these dials.

Both the warm pink-gold and the cooler white-gold cases subtly highlight the graceful grey tint of the dial. Inside the watch, Lange’s proven manually wound L941.1 calibre works reliably with a maximum power reserve of 45 hours. The lavishly hand-finished movement displays all classic hallmarks of Lange’s watchmaking artistry, including the hand-engraved balance cock that makes each timepiece one of a kind.

  1. Peter and team. Thanks for this. I am liking the Saxonia. And something very surprising – the Saxonia aesthetics are appealing to women. My wife noticed this and liked it.
