A. Lange & Söhne - Saxonia Annual Calendar
The Saxonia Annual Calender is a luxurious timepiece, designed to be both easy to use as well as aesthetically pleasing.
The Saxonia Annual Calender deftly combines visually pleasing design with practical information for a unique luxury timepiece that transcends generations. It features detailed, yet easy to read, dials that display an annual calendar with outsize date, day of the week, month, and moon phase. For busy executives who may work extremely long days, this is a well deserved reward that will enhance every day.
Though many luxury watches require their owners to wind them by hand, this horological gem features a self winding mechanical movement. Owners can admire the magnificent movement, whose accuracy far surpasses other watches' quartz movements in precision and longevity, through the sapphire glass case back. The red coloured jewels, blued screws, and gold gears all combine for a miniature example of functional art.
A. Lange & Söhne has worked since their founding in 1854 to perfect functional minimalism, and in the Saxonia Annual Calendar, it would appear that they have found triumphant success. Despite the myriad features displayed on the solid silver dial of this watch, the deliberate editing of each dial's labels is what makes them easy to read despite their small size. For example, the name of every other month has been omitted from the small month dial, while the day of the week dial utilizes capitalized three letter abbreviations for each day's name.
It is also worth noting that while the moon phase is a beautiful miniature of the moon cycle, it is also so accurate that it only requires adjustment once every 122 years. What is even more remarkable, however, is that as one of the most coveted luxury timepieces crafted in the world, its quality of workmanship and materials is so high that it may still be in your family in 122 years! A. Lange & Söhne's luxury timepieces are considered to be instant heirloom items, each of which is appropriate to be passed on from father to son, generation to generation, at life's best moments, such as a wedding or graduation.
