A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Mondphase

The Saxonia Moon Phase model from A. Lange & Söhne was introduced in 2016. The dial was made of solid silver and combined with solid gold applications. The hands are made of galvanic coating with rhodium. The special watch is equipped with the Lange large date as well as a precise moon phase display. Thus, the Saxonia Moon Phase combines two classic complications. The symmetrical arrangement of the date display at 12 o'clock and the moon phase display in the upper half at 6 o'clock impressively underlines the elegant design of this watch. The solid gold moon disk shows itself in an intense deep blue hue.

Automatic caliber and moon disc

The automatic caliber L086.5 was made of 325 individual parts and includes the astronomical complication. The moon disc with 852 stars was connected to the hour wheel and is therefore always in motion. Once a correct setting has been made, the actual position of the moon is accurately displayed. A. Lange & Söhne's moon phase displays are considered to be much more precise than those of other manufacturers. The sophisticated mechanism of the gear ensures the accurate display of the moon phases. The intense blue hue of the moon disc creates a special effect and ensures that the laser-cut stars are particularly contrasting.

The perpetual calendar and the large date

The orbital moon phase display shows the position of the sun and moon, and the display includes the sky disc, the moon disc, and the earth disc. The position of the sun is done by the balance wheel and the recess in the sky disc allows you to see the moon. The Lange & Söhne large date is a date display, which was integrated into a wristwatch in this size. A golden frame frames the date, which is displayed in numerals. This makes reading the date quite easy. When developing new clockworks, the employees of Lange & Söhne are always facing new challenges. This often results in completely new mechanisms, such as the world's first triple rattrapante mechanism.
