Having barely emerged from commemorating the 200th anniversary of the birth of its founder Ferdinand A. Lange and the inauguration of its new high-tech Manufacture, A. Lange & Söhne maintained its dynamic momentum by presenting seven new models at the SIHH 2016. These included a Dataograph Perpetual Tourbillon and a Lange I Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar. The more affordable and yet equally well-crafted self-winding Saxonia Moon Phase asserts itself as the perfect Haute Horlogerie watch for daily wear. This elegant and functional watch is matched by a precision equaled only by the authenticity of its personality.
A recurrent A. Lange & Söhne visual leitmotif since 1994, the famous outsize date prominently set at 12 o’clock in its split double aperture ensures matchless readability. Its two generous numerals shine even more brightly in that they enjoy a monopoly on the solid steel dial with its baton-type hour-markers. This useful complication nonetheless shares the spotlight with the function that lends its name to this eminent new member of the Saxonia family, the moon phase. Naturally adopting the brand’s characteristic understated approach featuring subtleties perceived exclusively by connoisseurs and aesthetes, the solid gold moon disk owes its intense deep blue shade to a patented coating process. In addition, only a very patient observer will be able to count off the 852 stars laser-cut into the upper coating on the same disk.
