Lange’s new Saxonia Dual Time offers a classically simple aesthetic in both design and function. Push pieces located at 8 and 10 o’clock allow the solid-gold hour hand to be advanced or moved back in one-hour increments without disturbing the minutes or seconds, so accurate timekeeping is maintained. A second hour hand in blued steel permanently keeps track of the time at home. Find pricing inside.
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 by one hour. A compact 24-hour subdial in the upper half of the dial is synchronized with the home-time display, telling the owner whether it’s day or night at home.
Available in pink or white gold, the case diameter is 40mm. The movements is the totally redesigned self-winding calibre L086.2. The central rotor incorporates a centrifugal mass made of 950 platinum. When fully wound, the power reserve is 72 hours.
The movement naturally exhibits Lange’s quality hallmarks, including a hand-engraved balance cock and an indexless oscillation system with a screw balance and proprietary balance spring developed and manufactured in-house, breathing at 21,600 semi-oscillations per hour. Movement surfaces, including those that cannot be seen after final assembly, are polished and decorated. These hand-executed finishing touches make each Lange a unique piece.
The U.S. list prices are $25,400, in pink gold and $26,600 in white gold.
