With svelte hands and baton hour markers in rhodiumed gold, the scintillating brown-inlaid mother-of-pearl face indicates the hours and minutes, as well as the seconds on a subsidiary dial. Located at 6 o’clock, the subdial stands in equilibrium with the A. Lange & Söhne signature beneath 12 o’clock. The cool gloss of 18-carat white gold emphasises the graceful silhouette of the two-part case that sparkles with the fire of 60 brilliant-cut diamonds. A strap in brown crocodile leather matching the colour of the dial completes the piece.

The manually wound manufacture calibre L941.2 inside the Saxonia assures high timekeeping accuracy. When fully wound, it delivers a power reserve of 45 hours. Surfaces lavishly decorated by hand as well as the Glashütte ribbing that adorns the three-quarter plate made of German silver manifest the pursuit of perfection as aptly as the screwed gold chatons and the hand-engraved balance cock. The sapphire-crystal caseback reveals the movement.
