Saxon Splendour

The new SAXONIA AUTOMATIC from A. Lange & Söhne pays tribute to Saxony, the traditional brand’s homeland, in its name. A land where art and craftsmanship reached their zenith. And a land that gave the inspiration for many architectural masterpieces – to men such as the architect George Bähr, working during the first half of the 18th century, who built, among other creations, the Dresden Frauenkirche in Saxon sandstone.

This unusually shaped building is crowned with a circular domed roof which, at 24 metres high and 26 metres in diameter, is one of the largest stone domes in Europe. Its reconstruction was a striking revelation of the feats of craftsmanship that can be achieved by those who have vision and the freedom to give full rein to their talent. A parallel can be seen in the renaissance of the Saxon watch brand of A. Lange & Söhne.

For all women who look for more in a watch than external value alone, A. Lange & Söhne has conceived the SAXONIA AUTOMATIK which has a bezel set with brilliants. Inside it beats the thinnest automatic watch movement that Lange’s master watchmakers have ever built, only 3.7 millimetres thick. Its slim housing of white or pink gold is crowned with a bezel adorned with 76 brilliants – the perfect setting for the formal clarity of the solid silver dial. The heritage of Saxon craftsmanship is mirrored in the fine surface decoration of all the movement’s components and the fine sense of unostentatious elegance.
