A shade of brown with a hint of red, “terra-brown” is similar to umber on the colour chart and is also the colour of the new Lange Saxonia Automatic. Presented for the first time at A. Lange & Söhne‘s new boutique in Tokyo, Japan, the Saxonia Automatic “terra-brown” adds diversity to Lange’s most affordable automatic watch (which is the latest in a series of entry-level timepieces including the Saxonia Thin 37mm and Saxonia Boutique Edition).
As with all Lange dials, the “terra-brown” is a disc of solid silver, finished with a fine grained surface and given a brown coating. All of the hour markers as well as the hands are made of solid gold.
Available in white or rose gold, the case is 38.5mm in diameter, equipped with the calibre L086.1, a self-winding movement with a three day power reserve. Being the brand’s basic automatic movement, the L086.1 is more simply constructed than Lange’s top of the line automatic (found in the Langematik perpetual calendar for instance). So it lacks gold chatons for the jewels and the rotor is gilded rather than solid gold, but still has high-end detailing like a platinum rotor rim, hand-engraved balance cock and blued steel screws.
Pricing and availability
Available from Lange boutiques and retailers, the Saxonia Automatic “terra-brown” is priced at €22,800 including 19 percent tax, or US$25,800.Back to top.
