In their diamond-set white-gold cases, the two new SAXONIA models constitute a fascinating combination of horological precision, superb artisanship and feminine elegance.
The visible facets of all the members of the SAXONIA watch family reflect the rich inner life of these timepieces. They represent a perfect embodiment of mechanical precision, sublime craftsmanship and well-balanced design. This also applies to the two new SAXONIA models in white (Ref. 878.029) and brown (Ref. 878.038) faces.
Both of these mesmerising A. Lange & Söhne ladies’ watches are focussing on the very essence. With svelte hands and baton hour markers in rhodiumed gold, the scintillating white- or brown-inlaid mother-of-pearl face indicates the hours and minutes, as well as the seconds on a subsidiary dial. Located at 6 o’clock, the subdial stands in equilibrium with the A. Lange& Söhne signature beneath 12 o’clock. The cool gloss of 18-carat white gold emphasises the graceful silhouette of the two-part case that sparkles with the exceptional fire of 60 brilliant-cut diamonds.
Straps in white or brown crocodile leather match the colour of the dial and amplify the glamorous charisma of these watches.
The manually wound manufacture calibre L941.2 inside the SAXONIA assures high timekeeping accuracy. When fully wound, it delivers a power reserve of 45 hours. The movement reflects the ambitious quest for aesthetic elegance down to the smallest detail.
Surfaces lavishly decorated by hand as well as the Glashütte ribbing that adorns the three-quarter plate made of German silver manifest the pursuit of perfection as aptly as the screwed gold chatons and the hand-engraved balance cock.
The sapphire-crystal caseback reveals the movement as a showpiece of mechanical ingenuity, commensurate with the dazzling appearance of the watch.
