A. Lange & Söhne The Lange Saxonia series brings new dial design elements through three watches-Saxonia, Saxonia Automatic and Saxonia Dual Time, which are further refined from the details.
SAXONIA DUAL TIME, SAXONIA, and SAXONIA AUTOMATIC: New generation models
‘Never Stop’ is not only the motto of Walter Lange, but also the driving force for many Lange product R & D personnel. They have a relentless pursuit of perfection, and strive for excellence in the design of the dial of Saxonia. In this simple and pure series, even the smallest elements will affect the overall appearance of a watch.
Saxonia, which has been around for 20 years, is an integral part of the past works of the watch factory. During the creative process, the designer drew different dial design sketches for the new generation of Saxonia watches, but in fact most of the differences between the designs are extremely subtle.
The carefully arranged surface layout makes Saxonia’s style more vivid. The position of the solid 18K gold hour marker is moved closer to the edge of the dial. Among them, 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock are marked with a double-rod block scale. The slightly increasing black minute scale brings a stronger visual experience. On the Saxonia Automatic and Saxonia Dual Time, the ten-digit scale of the small seconds dial is provided with numbers. All changes make the watch more legible.
The designer also slightly reduced the case size of the two models. It is now equipped with the Saxonia L941.1 calibre, 35 mm in diameter. The diameter of the Saxonia Dual Time is reduced to 38.5 mm, which is the same as the Saxonia Automatic.
Saxonia Dual Time with easy-to-adjust second time zone time and clear and easy-to-read display makes it the best companion for those who are often overseas and still love their hometown. Like other members of the Saxonia collection, this watch pays tribute to the birthplace of Lange. With hundreds of years of craftsmanship and deep aesthetic roots, Saxony became the ideal location for Ferdinando Adolf Lange to establish a watchmaking company in 1845. Lange’s pocket watches are not only elegant and charming, but also precise and reliable, and soon after they are released, they are among the best in the world. To this day, the Lange brand is still moving towards this goal. The latest three Saxonia models also live up to expectations and excel in all aspects. Hand-engraved balance splints make each watch a unique treasure. The perfectly modified movement is the essence of Saxony’s watchmaking skills.
When Ferdinand Adolph Lange founded his watchmaking factory in 1845, it also laid the foundation stone for the watchmaking industry in Saxony. His precision pocket watches are still sought after by collectors around the world. After the Second World War, Lange’s century-old foundation was expropriated and confiscated by the East German regime. The great-grandson of the founder, Walter Lange, seized the opportunity and began the revival of Lange in 1990. Today, Lange produces only thousands of gold or platinum 950 watches representing the highest quality each year. All are equipped with an exclusive movement carefully modified and assembled by hand. In 20 years, Lange has developed 49 Manufacture-made movements, leading the world’s leading watch brands. The brand is fruitful, introducing different innovative timing tools, such as LANGE 1 with the first large calendar display in general watches, and ZEITWERK with clear, easy-to-read, accurate word-jumping devices. These two watches have also become Lange’s signature models.
