In addition to the new SAXONIA Automatic watch released this year, A. Lange & Söhne presents a manual-wound variant from this distinguished collection.
The manually-wound SAXONIA watch with the reliable manufacture calibre L941.1 also reflects the new design vocabulary. Its case and dial project the new, elegant styling as well.
This refined time-only watch features a small seconds dial in addition to the centrally positioned lancet hour and minute hands. The separately applied hour markers and the hands are made of the same gold alloy.
The manual-wound movement with 21 jewels and stop-seconds function delivers a power reserve of 45 hours when fully wound.
The new Lange SAXONIA hand-wound watch is available in 18-carat yellow, pink, or white gold and has a diameter of 37.0 millimetres.
Measuring 7.8mm thickness, the case is fitted with a sapphire crystal glass case-back, which offers the view of the self-winding movement with emblematic A. Lange & Söhne finishing and decorations.
The yellow gold version (reference 216.021) features a champagne dial and brown crocodile strap. The white gold model (reference 216.026) has an argenté dial and black crocodile strap. The SAXONIA hand-wound pink gold variant comes with an argenté dial and chestnut brown crocodile strap. All the straps are fitted with Lange prong buckle in gold.
