At SIHH 2011 A. Lange & Söhne introduced a newly-redesigned Saxonia Automatic featuring a larger and slimmer case and a new self-winding movement. The decidedly understated aesthetics nonetheless incorporate fundamental Lange design elements, and the all-new Lange manufacture calibre L086.1 features signature touches such as hand engraving and Lange’s proprietary in-house balance spring.
The movement is only 3.7mm thick. In contrast to their predecessors, the white and pink gold cases of the Saxonia Automatic have grown to a diameter of 38.5mm. At the same time, the watches are now noticeably thinner, measuring only 7.8mm in overall height. Thanks to the gently chamfered bezel, the solid-silver argenté dial looks larger than ever, showcasing the slender baton hour markers, solid-gold lancet hands, and the concisely graduated minute scale.
The watch is available in 18K pink or white gold. The applied hour markers and the lancet hands are made of the same gold alloy.
The U.S. suggested retail prices are $20,900 in pink gold and $22,200 in white gold.
