A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Outsize Date Automatic

Combining exciting design elements with technical finesse, the new self-winding timepiece from the SAXONIA watch family, boasts an outsize date indication at 12’o clock on the black dial that also houses a small seconds dial at 6’o clock.

Available in white or rose gold case versions, the SAXONIA OUTSIZE DATE is equipped with a self winding movement based on the calibre L086.1 that has been powering the SAXONIA AUTOMATIC since 2011.

Now endowed with an outsize date display, the new calibre L086.8 movement ensures that the debut timepiece will run with benchmark dependability. The ingenious configuration with separate displays for the units and tens ranks among A. Lange & Söhne’s most extraordinary technical developments.

In the SAXONIA OUTSIZE DATE, the display – a classic arrangement of two white discs with black numerals – sports a new design. The date discs of the precisely centred outsize date are black and feature white printed numerals to match the black galvanised solidsilver dial. Applied hour markers in solid gold and the elegantly proportioned 38.5-millimetre case in white or pink gold underscore the richly contrasting overall personality of the watch.

A large central rotor with an outer centrifugal mass in platinum keeps the mainspring of the self-winding movement tensioned; the maximum power reserve of 72 hours is achieved with only one mainspring barrel.

Additional technical and artisanal highlights include a classic screw balance with a free-sprung Lange hairspring, the three-quarter plate made of untreated German silver and the manually engraved balance cock with the characteristic whiplash spring for precision beat adjustments.
