A. Lange & Söhne, the famed Saxony watchmaker have released what they describe as the new generation of their much admired Saxonia range.
The name ‘Saxonia’ refers to the German state of Saxony, which has repeatedly set benchmarks in technical developments over the course of history, starting with the work of Dresden watchmaker Ferdinand Adolph Lange became part of who founded the brand in 1845. His continuous improvements to mechanical constructions remain a core part of the philosophy of A. Lange & Söhne to this day, and are also reflected in the models which make up the Saxonia family.
In 1994, Saxonia was one of the first four models to go on sale after the company’s re-launch. Since then, Saxonia has evolved into a ten-strong family of models. A. Lange & Söhne presented three of these with a new dial in January 2015; namely the Saxonia Dual Time, Saxonia and Saxonia Automatic all of which are now available.
The new generation design features solid-gold applied hour markers which 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 ten markers of the subsidiary seconds dial have been endowed with numerals.
