SIHH 2014: A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Jewellery with Mother-of-Pearl Dial. Live Pictures.

In their 60 diamond-set —approximately one total carat— 18K white gold cases measuring 35 mm in diameter and 7.9 mm in thickness, the two new Saxonia Jewellery models constitute a fascinating combination of horological precision, superb artisanship and feminine elegance. The visible facets of all the members of the Saxonia watch family reflect the rich inner life of these timepieces. They represent a perfect embodiment of mechanical precision, sublime craftsmanship and well-balanced design. This also applies to the two new Saxonia models in white ref. 878.029 and brown ref. 878.038 dials. Both of these mesmerizing A. Lange & Söhne ladies’ watches are focusing on the very essence. With svelte hands and baton hour markers in rhodiumed gold, the scintillating white or brown inlaid mother-of-pearl dial indicates the hours and minutes, as well as the seconds on a subsidiary dial. Located at 6 o’clock, the subdial stands in equilibrium with the A. Lange & Söhne signature beneath 12 o’clock.

The cool gloss of 18K white gold emphasizes the graceful silhouette of the two-part case that sparkles with the exceptional fire of 60 brilliant-cut diamonds. Straps in white or brown crocodile leather match the color of the dial and amplify the glamorous charisma of these watches.

The manually wound manufacture calibre L941.2 inside the Saxonia Jewellery assures high timekeeping accuracy. When fully wound, it delivers a power reserve of 45 hours. The movement reflects the ambitious quest for aesthetic elegance down to the smallest detail. Surfaces lavishly decorated by hand as well as the Glashütte ribbing that adorns the three-quarter plate made of German silver manifest the pursuit of perfection as aptly as the screwed gold chatons and the hand-engraved balance cock. The sapphire-crystal case back reveals the movement as a showpiece of mechanical ingenuity, commensurate with the dazzling appearance of the watch.
