A. Lange & Söhne is presenting two new models of the SAXONIA AUTOMATIC with terra-brown dials. They are the first members of the SAXONIA family to feature this elegant hue. The pink-gold and white-gold versions are being launched to celebrate the reopening of the Lange Boutique in Ginza, Tokyo.
The tastefully renovated Boutique in Tokyo’s upscale Ginza district is being festively reopened on 30 June 2016. To mark the occasion, A. Lange & Söhne has endowed two models of the SAXONIA AUTOMATIC with terra-brown solid-silver dials. The timeless earthen hue is flexibly combinable and always looks natural.
Both elegant self-winding models have 38.5-millimetre cases. Colour coordinated, hand stitched alligator leather straps in red brown and dark brown emphasise the graceful overall personality of these watches. The solid-gold hands and hour markers match the case colours and underscore their prominent design.
The Lange L086.1 self-winding calibre, merely 3.7 millimetres high, beats inside these models. It has a maximum power reserve of 72 hours and features brand-typical quality hallmarks such as the balance cock with free-hand decorative engraving. A central rotor suspended in ball bearings and a platinum centrifugal mass are among the assets of the manufactory-made movement. As all other Lange models, the SAXONIA AUTOMATIC is assembled a second time, after the individual calibre components have been lavishly decorated and polished by hand. This makes each SAXONIA AUTOMATIC a one-of-a kind work of art.
