A. Lange & Sohne Saxonia Automatic in Rose Gold (Ref. 380.032) German watches

A. Lange & Sohne Saxonia Automatic in Rose Gold (Ref. 380.032)

The new A. Lange & Sohne Saxonia (Ref. 380.032) automatic watch is now available in a slightly larger, but better proportioned case crafted from 18-carat rose gold.


Although the new watch doesn’t differ too much from the Ref. 215.032 hand-wound model, it is still just a tad larger.

While the manual-wind version of the watch is available in a case 37 mm in diameter and 7.3 mm thick, the new model will be delivered in a similarly shaped body 38.50 mm in diameter and 7.80 mm high.

The weight gain probably comes courtesy of the new Lange caliber L086.1 automatic movement, which is a little thicker than the Lange 941.1 hand-wound engine.

The watch is equipped with a solid-silver argente dial that features applied baton-shaped hour markers and solid gold lancet hands. The doubled hour marker at 12 o’clock makes it easier to tell time when watch is not on the wrist.

As usual, the subsidiary seconds sub-dial is located at 6 o’clock counterbalancing the Lange logo at 12 o’clock.

Highly recommended.

    Hi

    I am really appreciative of A.L&S timepieces, the class, the simplicity, the “saying it without saying it” quality (to borrow from Duke Ellington); and I am working hard on my music career and hope to one day afford to buy and own an A.L&S timepiece, the class, the subtlety…has a great appeal for me. Nevertheless, as the song says, your timepieces are majestic.

    I love the silence of the design, simple, yet never simplistic.

    Regards
    Sipho Mabaso
