Now, the SAXONIA DUAL TIME presents a new paragon of convenience when it comes to setting the time for a second zone: When its owner makes the transition from one time zone to another, the solid-gold hour hand that indicates local time can be incremented or decremented in one-hour steps. This is done simply by actuating one of the two push pieces located at 8 and 10 o'clock in the left-hand case flank. When the upper push piece is pressed once, the hour hand advances by one hour. When the lower one is actuated, the hour hand jumps anti-clockwise, again in one-hour steps. The progression of the minute hand is not affected by this operation. Thus, on a flight from Munich to New York, the lower push piece has to be actuated six times to assure that the watch displays the correct local time when the aircraft lands. A second hour hand in blued steel permanently keeps track of the time at home. A compact 24-hour subdial in the upper half of the watch face offers extra guidance. It is synchronised with home time and always tells the owner of the SAXONIA DUAL TIME whether it's day or night at home.
With its cleverly organised indications, the eminently legible dial of the SAXONIA DUAL TIME assures an instant reading of local and home time at a glance. Styled for comfort and aesthetic appeal, its pink- or white-gold case has a diameter of 40 millimetres. Its movement is the totally redesigned self-winding calibre L086.2, which was complemented with an extra handsetting mechanism for the second time zone. Energyefficient winding is assured by a central rotor with a centrifugal mass made of 950 platinum. When fully wound, the watch has a power reserve of 72 hours. The Langestyle quality hallmarks of the movement include the hand-engraved balance cock and an indexless oscillation system with a screw balance as well as a proprietary balance spring developed and manufactured in-house. It breathes at a frequency of 21,600 semi-oscillations per hour. The movement, lavishly decorated by hand, reflects the pinnacle of Lange watchmaking artistry. The surfaces of its numerous parts, even of those that cannot be seen after final assembly, are finished with consummately executed polishing and decorating techniques. Like watermarks, they make every A. Lange & Söhne watch a one-of-a-kind treasure.
