This year, A. Lange & Söhne did subtle design modifications on its elegant SAXONIA collection to make it lucid and contemporary.
The new SAXONIA AUTOMATIC model features a larger and slimmer case and equipped with a newly developed self-winding movement. It is available in pink gold (reference 380.032) and white gold (reference 380.026) versions.
The cultivated elegance and impressive intrinsic values leveraged by the latest-generation SAXONIA AUTOMATIC watch pays tribute to the grand tradition of Saxon watchmaking artistry. Down to the very last detail, it transports the heritage of Saxon precision watchmaking into the present day.
The all-new Lange manufacture calibre L086.1 is the third self-winding movement presented by the Saxon master watchmakers. Suspended in ball bearings, a central rotor with a centrifugal mass made of 950 platinum assures that the maximum power reserve of 72 hours is quickly available on the wrist.
The new SAXONIA AUTOMATIC watch features an elegant 38.5mm diameter case in 18K pink or white gold. Both models have solid silver argenté dial with rhodiumed gold or pink gold hands.
