A lucid design vocabulary and mechanical finesse characterise the Saxonia outsize date, a true classic in the manufacture’s collection, which is now available with an argenté-coloured dial. The Lange outsize date and subsidiary seconds in a symmetric arrangement underscore the prominent look of a watch that beautifully combines technical refinement with formal harmony.
The name Saxonia refers to the impressive history of Saxony. A. Lange & Söhne has a long association with this region, and starting in 1990, the great-grandson of the company’s founder contributed significantly to the renaissance of Saxon precision watchmaking. Today, the watches of A. Lange & Söhne are known all over the world for their exceptional quality and masterful craftsmanship.
A. Lange & Söhne presents the Saxonia outsize date for the first time in 2018. The two versions available until now both had black dials, now these will be joined by two additional models which we are introducing today. In the Saxonia outsize date, the characteristic style of the manufacture embraces numerous design details such as the chamfered and polished solid-gold baton appliques. The outsize date is positioned at 12 o’clock on the clearly and minimalistically designed dial. The subsidiary seconds dial at the 6 o’clock position counterbalances the face.
With a diameter of 38.5 millimeters and a height of 9.6 millimeters, the case in white gold or pink gold exhibits classic proportions.
A. Lange & Söhne has equipped the Saxonia outsize date with a high-quality in-house caliber. This automatic movement consists of 286 individual parts and features two separate date display surfaces for the units and tens that are at least twice as large as in watches of a comparable size. The outsize date is therefore actually really large, making it really easy to read.
The calibre L086.6 includes a strong mainspring barrel that delivers a maximum power reserve of 72 hours. Of course the movement is finished to the standards customary at A. Lange & Söhne and can be viewed through the crystal case back.
Both versions are fitted with a bracelet made of alligator leather, the one of the rose comes in a warm honey brown, the one of the white gold model in a glossy black.
