  • Catalogue Essay

    Standing at the pinnacle of German precision and craftsmanship in the world of horology, A. Lange & Söhne is regarded as a brand with a history that is both storied and influential. Established in 1845, the brand has become synonymous with uncompromising quality, technical innovation, and timeless design.

    The A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Annual Calendar, crafted in 18K white gold, perfectly exemplifies this concept. Boasting a lustrous grey dial and hands typically found in platinum examples, this exceptional timepiece was exclusively designed for Lange's American boutiques in Costa Mesa, Miami, and New York.

    The splendid grey dial of the present limited edition, crafted from German silver, provides a striking contrast against the white gold case, accentuated by a subtle design tweak – matching the background of the date windows to the dial's color. The most exclusive element of this limited edition is the rhodium-treated micro-rotor. Made of 21-Karat gold with outer mass made in platinum, it is typically left as is, but in this case the rotor has been fully plated in blackened rhodium, then circular graining was applied to the raised text of the rotor, exposing the yellow gold again – a treatment exclusively done for this limited edition.

    With only twenty-five pieces distributed among the three U.S. boutiques, the opportunity to acquire such a piece is exceptionally rare. This particular example is virtually unworn and includes the complete suite of original accessories.

  • Artist Biography

    A. Lange & Söhne

    German • 1845

    Originally founded in 1845 by Ferdinand Adolph Lange in Glashütte, Dresden, Germany, the firm established an entire watchmaking culture and industry in Glashütte. The brand quickly became Germany's finest watchmaker, first creating dependable, easy-to-repair watches before going on to produce some of the world's finest complicated pocket watches, including Grande Sonnerie watches, tourbillon watches and Grande Complications.

    On the final day of World War II, their factories were destroyed by Russian bombers, and in 1948 the brand was confiscated by the Soviet Union. Following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1990, Ferdinand's great grandson Walter Lange re-established the brand with the objective to once again produce top-quality luxury watches. Now part of the Richemont Group, its original vintage and modern creations are highly coveted by collectors. Key models from the modern era include the Lange 1, Pour Le Mérite Tourbillon and the Zeitwerk.
