Lange & Sohne Saxonia

For 2015, German watchmaker  decided to revise the design of three watches in its Saxonia line.

In the new versions of the Saxonia, Saxonia Automatic and Saxonia Dual Time, the key updates are seen on the sterling silver dial, which now has a more elegant appearance and greater legibility.

The changes are all in the details, but connoisseurs will likely spot the updates to the solid gold indices, which are now closer to the edge of the dial and have a double line at three, six, nine and twelve o’clock.

For two of the updated models, a reduction in the case diameter also contributes to a more refined style. The Saxonia, which still houses a hand-wound L941.1 movement from the Lange workshops, now measures 35mm across, while the Saxonia Dual Time has been shrunk to 38.5mm, making it the same size as the Saxonia Automatic.

On the Automatic and the Dual Time, numerals have been added to each group of 10 seconds on the seconds dial, which is located at 6 o’clock.

These three models will be presented at the 2015 Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie, which takes place in Geneva January 19 to 23.
