The Saxonia Moon Phase adopts a new look with a black dial. A highly precise moon-phase display and the characteristic Lange outsize date accentuate the puristic design of this technically and aesthetically compelling self- winding watch.
Functional, easy to use, and clearly organized: with these assets, the Saxonia Moon Phase – first introduced in 2016 – fulfils all of the criteria of a wristwatch that its owners will always enjoy wearing. The black dial enhances the optics of the timepiece with the two classic complications.
The moon-phase display is decorated with 852 stars and calculated to remain accurate for 122.6 years. It is connected to the hour-wheel continuum and, just like the moon itself, constantly in motion. The iconic Lange outsize date is another special feature of the model which so far has been available exclusively with an argenté-colored dial. In this version, to match the black dial, the date numerals are white on a black background rather than vice-versa. The outsize date and the seconds subdial with the integrated moon-phase display are centered on the vertical axis, underscoring the sleek elegance of the overall design.
A large central rotor with a centrifugal mass in platinum reliably winds the Lange L086.5 manufacture caliber, which is finished by hand to the most exacting standards. When fully wound, the generously dimensioned mainspring barrel delivers a power reserve of 72 hours. A classic screw balance, a freely oscillating Lange balance spring, a three-quarter plate made of untreated German silver and a hand-engraved balance cock are among the traditional quality features that connoisseurs around the world associate with the A. Lange & Söhne brand.
