Since it was launched 20 years ago, the Saxonia has been a permanent part of the manufactory’s repertoire. In their search for a more prominent face that would befit the new generation of the Lange classic, the designers sketched out numerous variations of the dial, most of them differentiated merely in nuances.

Today, the solid-gold applied hour markers have been moved toward the periphery of the dial and are executed as double baton appliques at 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock. The slightly extended black graduations of the minute scale are also more striking. For the Saxonia Automatic and the Saxonia Dual Time, the tens markers of the subsidiary seconds dial have been endowed with numerals.

Moreover, the case size of two models has been reduced: the diameter of the Saxonia with the proven L941.1 manufacture calibre is now 35mm, and, with a reduced diameter of 38.5mm, the Saxonia Dual Time is now the same size as the Saxonia Automatic.
