A. Lange Sohne Two New Saxonia Models
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.
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. Twin-baton 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.
About A. Lange & Söhne
When Ferdinand Adolph Lange, a Dresden watchmaker, established his watch manufactory in 1845, he laid the cornerstone of Saxony’s precision watchmaking. His precious pocket watches remain highly coveted among collectors all over the world. The company was expropriated after World War II, and the name A. Lange & Söhne nearly fell into oblivion. In 1990, Ferdinand Adolph Lange’s great-grandson Walter Lange had the courage to relaunch the brand. Today, Lange crafts only a few thousand wristwatches in gold or platinum per year. They are endowed exclusively with proprietary movements that are lavishly decorated and assembled by hand. In a period of little more than 20 years, A. Lange & Söhne developed 51 manufacture calibres and secured a top-tier position among the world’s finest watch brands. Its greatest successes include innovative time-keeping instruments such as the LANGE 1 with the first outsize date in a series produced wristwatch as well as the ZEITWERK with its supremely legible, precisely jumping numerals. In the meantime, both models have become icons of a brand rich in tradition.
