Pre-SIHH 2015: A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia, Saxonia Automatic, and Saxonia Dual Time.

A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia, Saxonia Automatic, and Saxonia Dual Time

You don´t see anything new? At first sight I fully agree! You have to look twice to discover the Saxonia watch family with its new dial design…

 

Since it was launched 20 years ago, the Saxonia has been a permanent part of the manufactory’s repertoire. In their search for a more prominent face that would befit the new generation of the Lange classic, the designers sketched out numerous variations of the dial, most of them differentiated merely in nuances. Just a few precisely placed accents graciously emphasise the sublimely chiselled face of the Saxonia family’s models. The solid-gold applied hour markers have been moved toward the periphery of the dial and are executed as double baton appliques at 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock. The slightly extended black graduations of the minute scale are also more striking. For the Saxonia Automatic and the Saxonia Dual Time, the tens markers of the subsidiary seconds dial have been endowed with numerals. All modifications were made in the interest of improved legibility.

In fact often less is more… 🙂

The designers slightly reduced the case size of two models. The diameter of the Saxonia with the L941.1 manufacture calibre is now 35.0 millimetres. With a reduced diameter of 38.5 millimetres, the Saxonia Dual Time is now the same size as the Saxonia Automatic.

Its conveniently adjustable second zone-time and superb legibility make the Saxonia Dual Time a perfect companion for individuals who feel at home around the world. At the same time, like the other members of the Saxonia watch family, it pays tribute to the homeland of A. Lange & Söhne.

Their lavishly finished movements epitomise Saxon watchmaking artistry. The hand-engraved balance cock transforms each timepiece into a precious one-of-a-kind treasure.

  • Almost all Lange watches are truly outstanding, but unfortunately, they are beyond the reach of ordinary watch-lovers.

  • I prefer the new designs to the former ones. But I am no fan of Lange. So, my preference for the new designs might be caused by the fact that these new designs are less Lange (at least in my perception). Therefore Lange could gain some new customers for the price of losing identity.
