Today we’re introducing three new A. Lange & Sohne Saxonia models that’ll be formally released throughout the approaching SIHH in The month of January 2015. Technically the 3 watches will stay the same, however when it comes to appearance and/or size the Saxonia, the Saxonia Automatic and also the Saxonia Dual Time is going to be up-to-date.

The Saxonia line signifies the “entry” level of the high-end watch manufacture from Saxony, Germany. Two of the models, the Saxonia and also the Saxonia Dual Time, will disappear in dimensions. Yes, you read that correct! Each time that the watch brand decides to lessen size rather than growing, we at Monochrome applaud that type of bravery.

That’s only one of the explanations why we’re so taken through the 38.5 mm calculating Lange 1 which has continued to be unchanged in dimensions during the last two decades, and is not susceptible to the large, bigger, greatest hype that continued in the watch industry for the reason that past decade.

To become more precise, the Saxonia – that’s the small hand wound model – was 34mm at introduction and it was enlarged in 2007 to the present 37mm across. The brand new Saxonia, with by hand wound movement calibre L941.1, will disappear to some excellent 35mm across.

The 40mm Saxonia Dual Time will be reduce towards the same size because the Saxonia Automatic, namely a good 38.5mm across. Aside from the size changes, the 3 models will receive a slightly up-to-date dial design. Here’s a sizable photo of the Saxonia Automatic dial that shows all up-to-date design cues.

What transformed: the minute track round the dial, the second track within the subsidiary second sub dial and added Arabic numbers for that hundreds, the solid-gold applied hour markers happen to be moved toward the periphery of the dial and therefore are performed as double baton appliques at 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock. Within the following side-by-side you can observe the variations.

The brand new more compact Saxonia can make an excellent typically styled dress watch for males and ladies. We wouldn’t be surprised when the 37mm Saxonia models around the second hand market, will end up much more desired. Altogether a fantastic choice from Lange, to lessen the Saxonia in dimensions, and the Saxonia Automatic in the excellent size 38.5mm, and lower the Saxonia Dual Time for you to exactly the same nice size.
