The highly-legible solid-silver dial of the new A. Lange & Sohne watch allows to instantly read the local and home time at a glance.
The creators of the Saxonia Dual Time watch wanted to make the procedure of setting the time for a second time-zone most convenient. While switching from one time-zone to another, the hour hand, showing local time, can be incremented or decremented in one-hour steps with help of the push-pieces found at 8 and 10 o’clock. When the watch owner presses the upper push-piece, the hour hand moves forward by one hour. When he presses the lower push-piece, the hour hand moves back, also in one-hour steps.
The 40mm case of the watch is crafted from pink or white gold. It accommodates the completely redesigned self-winding movement - calibre L086.2. The movement acquired an extra hand-setting mechanism for the second time-zone. It incorporates a central rotor with a 950 platinum centrifugal mass that provided energy-efficient winding. The movement gives an advantage of a 72-hour power reserve.
The A. Lange & Sohne Saxonia Dual Time watch is presented on a hand-stitched black or chestnut crocodile strap. It is fitted with a Lange prong buckle in solid gold.
