A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Annual Calendar, Grande Lange 1 Moon Phase, 1815 Up/Down and Lange 1 Time Zone

Focus on the Saxonia Annual Calendar, Grande Lange 1 Moon Phase, 1815 Up/Down and Lange 1 Time Zone models.

Saxonia Annual Calendar – Convenient elegance
Unlike the hours and minutes that are generally indicated all around us in countless different ways that mean we barely need to glance at our wrist to check them, annual calendar indications are doubtless some of the most useful and also the best appreciated by watch lovers. A. Lange & Söhne brilliantly takes on this challenge for the first time with the new Saxonia Annual Calendar. Imbued with unmistakably contemporary elegance, this white gold model is above all distinguished by its functionality. The day of the week, the brand’s emblematic big date, along with the month and moon phases, are all displayed on the pure, uncluttered dial in a manner ensuring maximum legibility. Behind the scenes, the famous SAX-O-MAT caliber whose reputation for reliability is well established. Alongside the calendar indications that will require just one annual adjustment the precision of the moon-phase display is remarkable and will require only one correction every 122 years. Enough to put stars in the eyes of watchmaking aficionados.

Grande Lange 1 Moon Phase – Reaching for the skies
Intriguing, remote and yet so near, the moon has always exercised its fascination on humankind. Formerly regarded as a reliable companion for sailors and farmers, the moon is now generally seen to be more useful for dreaming and elevating human thought than for measuring time. It all matters little for watchmakers such as A. Lange & Söhne who are constantly reaching for the stars – and for the earth’s satellite. On the Grande Lange 1 Moon Phase, this astronomical complication is majestically enthroned at the heart of the brand’s legendary design, while never losing sight of the fact that poetry should be matched by extreme precision. Once correctly adjusted, the moon display will require no adjustment for another 122.6 years ! Meanwhile, the lucky owners of this elegant model will have plenty of time to admire the exceptional glow of the moon disk coating based on a patented development. Some 300 stars of various sizes compose a superb miniaturized version of the Milky Way. Brilliant !

1815 Up/Down – Energy in reserve
Precision, functionality and refinement : the 1815 Up/Down combines all the characteristic elements of the A. Lange & Söhne collections. Nurtured by a wealth of historical references, this elegantly discreet model owes its name to the birth date of the company founder, Ferdinand A. Lange. It also derives its unostentatious design from the historical pocket watches made by the founder of the Saxony-based Manufacture. With a 38mm gold case, a silver-toned dial, blued hands and a railway-type minute track, rigorous classicism is the keynote of this chic timepiece offering a beautiful interpretation of a power-reserve mechanism patented in 1879 and subsequently revisited by Otto Lange, the founder’s grandson. The practical and functional Up mention indicates that the system is fully wound, while Down means it is unwound. Ideal for optimal management of this watch’s three-day power reserve and for ensuring one is never short of energy.

Lange 1 Time Zone – Night and day around the world
The possibility of reading off the correct time here and there, anywhere and everywhere. That’s how one might sum up the Lange 1 Time Zone in white gold. Its luminescent appliques and hands ensure that frequent travelers who spend their time on planes can thus maintain their temporal bearings among the world’s 24 time zones. And because Lange is committed to a focus on functionality, choosing the appropriate time zone and adjusting the rotating city ring via a dedicated pusher is mere child’s play. This user friendliness is further enhanced by an ingenious synchronization mechanism serving to transfer the zone time on the subsidiary dial to the main dial. The position of the hands on the secondary dial will thus be the same as they previously showed on the principal dial. This smart feature makes the Lange 1 an indispensable accessory for circling the globe without losing track of time.
