A. Lange & Söhne expanded its Saxonia observe family with four new models: two Saxonia Outsize Date and two Saxonia Moon Phase, all with black dials matched to white or pink gold cases.
The Saxonia Outsize Date is powered by the self-winding caliber L086.1 featuring a large central rotor with an outer centrifugal mass in platinum. The greatest power reserve of 72 hours is achieved with just a single fountainhead barrel.
Framed by the exemplary round case (38.5 mm wide and 9.6 mm high), the presentation – an exemplary arrangement of two white circles with black numerals – sports a new design. Indeed, the date circles of the precisely centered outsize date are here black and feature white printed numerals to coordinate the black galvanized strong silver dial with applied hour markers in strong gold.
The price of the A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Outsize Date, in white gold (ref. 381.029) or in pink gold (ref. 381.031), is Euro 24,500 (with German VAT).
The new Saxonia Moon Phase models are additionally enhanced by a black dial where the date numerals are white on a black background rather than vice-versa. The outsize date and the seconds subdial with the integrated moon-phase show are centered on the vertical pivot, a format which contributes to the elegance of the overall design.
The moon-phase show is decorated with 852 stars and calculated to remain accurate for 122.6 years. It is connected to the hour-wheel continuum and, much the same as the moon itself, continually moving.
Concerning the movement of the Outsize Date model, the Lange L086.5 manufacture caliber beats at a frequency of 3 Hz (21,600 vph) with 72 hours of power reserve.
Available in a 40 mm x 9.8 mm white gold (ref. 384.029) or pink gold (ref. 384.031) case, the A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Moon Phase with black dial has a price of Euro 28,500 (with German VAT).
Both the L086.1 and L086.5 movements feature the signature three-quarter plate made of untreated German silver and the physically engraved balance rooster with the characteristic whiplash spring for precision beat adjustments. alange-soehne.com
