Introducing: The A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Annual Calendar U.S. Boutique Exclusive

Speedy Take

Though the 1815 Annual Calendar is the fake watch prices that made a major splash at SIHH 2017, it’s imperative to not fail to remember its archetype, the Saxonia Annual Calendar (which appeared back in 2010). This functional complication is made much more wearable by being fueled by a programmed Sax-O-Mat type, and the large date show is quintessential Lange. This new version is technically indistinguishable from the first, yet with another smooth dim dial matched with a white gold case and a winding rotor that combines a dark rhodium finish with round graining, to give it a dark and-gold appearance. Just 25 pieces will be made of this new model and they’re accessible only through Lange’s U.S. stores in New York City, Costa Mesa, California, and Miami.

Starting Thoughts

I loved the first Saxonia Annual Calendar, however this sends the fake watch prices over the top for me. The combination of the brushed dark dial with the matching white-on-dim date circles is glorious, and the little punch of blue that you get from the moonphase plate holds it back from becoming dull. I likewise truly like the new treatment on the rotor, notwithstanding for the most part leaning toward hand-wound Lange fake watch prices – I’m anticipating giving it a more critical look under a loupe in the near future. The solitary thing here I’d change? That tie. To me the shiny blue diverts from the nuance and cohesiveness of the dial. Possibly something in a milder, hazier blue would better suit the fake watch prices Luckily, that’s a simple fix.
