The Saxonia Automatic Outsize Date from German watchmaker A. Lange & Söhne made its debut in Hong Kong last month, featuring watchmakers most known attribute: the double-window outsize date. Simple yet elegant watch reflects the refinement that characterizes the Saxonia watches. The Saxonia Automatic Outsize Date pays tribute to its origins and watchmaking traditions in Saxon region.
This unique timepiece is housed in a pink-gold case. The most noticeable feature of the watch as its name suggests is the oversized double-window date in black on the white dial. Both stick hour markers and hands are made in pink gold. Sub-dial for small seconds is at six o’clock. Watch is powered by in-house developed and produced, L921.4 SAX-0-MAT manufacture caliber. The SAX-0-MAT name is the result of combining “Saxonia” – Latin word for Saxony, “Zero” and “Automatic.” Zero is an important part of the movement, it represents the Zero-Reset mechanism, which causes the seconds hand to instantaneously jump to the 12 o’clock position when the crown is pulled. This makes watch synchronization very easy. Watch is fitted with a brown hand-stitched crocodile strap.
The Saxonia Automatic Outsize Date’s movement is visible through the sapphire crystal caseback. The automatic winder boasts an efficient 21 karat gold embossed rotor with a platinum centrifugal mass that winds the watch in both directions thanks to a reduction gear. Mainspring power is quickly accumulated by four ball bearings, whether or not wearer’s arm had a busy or quiet day.
Limited to 25 pieces, the special edition Saxonia Automatic is available at A. Lange & Söhne boutiques around the world.
