SIHH 2016: A. Lange & Sohne - Saxonia Moon Phase

One of the novelties presented by A. Lange & Söhne at the 2016 edition of the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie held in Geneva last January, the new Saxonia Moon Phase successfully combines two of the most popular and appreciated watchmaking complications: date and moon phase display.


The date is without doubt one of the most useful and practical function that can be featured in a watch. On the other hand, the moon phase is probably the most poetic and aesthetically pleasing indication.



In terms of design, the dial of the Saxonia Moon Phase is perfectly balanced with the signature outsize date at 12 o'clock and, at 6 o'clock, an attractive moon phase display whose intense blue tone of the solid-gold lunar disc is created by a special patented coating process. A laser is used to cut out no fewer than 852 stars.



Not just beautiful, these two elements are technologically advanced. The gold-framed split double aperture used for the date hides an ingenious and space-saving configuration adopting two separate display segments for the units and tens. The push button at 10 o'clock allows the wearer to quickly adjust the date.



The moon phase display is connected to the hour-wheel continuum so, just like the moon itself, it is always in motion. It reproduces the period from new moon to new moon with an accuracy of 99.998 per cent, thanks to a precisely calculated seven-stage transmission. Once set using the recessed corrector positioned below the crown, and assuming that the watch runs continuously, the display only has to be corrected by one day every 122.6 years.


As a confirmation of the exceptional experience of A. Lange & Söhne in the development of precise moon-phase displays, just consider that the self-winding calibre L086.5 inside the Saxonia Moon Phase is the 16th movement of the brand with this popular astronomical complication.


The 3 Hz (21,600 vph) manufacture movement with the unmistakable three-quarter plate is perfectly hand-finished and features a large central rotor with a centrifugal mass in platinum. The mainspring barrel guarantees an efficient 72-hour power reserve.


The A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Moon Phase is available in a white gold (ref. 384.026) or pink gold (ref. 384.032) 40 mm x 9.8 mm case. Both versions have a retail price of Euro 28,500. alange-soehne.com
