Earlier this year, the Saxon watchmakers unveiled a pink gold watch with a silvery face displaying the different phases of the queen of the night between two full moons.

Among the new products presented by the German brand at the Salon International de Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), which was held in Geneva in January, was a small gold watch with a clear and useful display: the Petite Lange1 Phases de Lune.

The dial on the Petite Lange1 Phases de Lune is made of solid gold with silver and guilloché elements, resulting in a semi-circular pattern and providing a “floral” visual effect. Offset at 9 o’clock in a large counter framed by an hour marker with gilded indices and Arabic numerals are two lancine-shaped hour and minute hands. The seconds, meanwhile, are set at 4.30 and placed above the moon-phase display. The latter features a silver disc decorated with two moons and a whole host of golden stars. Set in a double window framed with gold at 1 o’clock, the large date displays large black Arabic numerals against a white background, with the power reserve indicator housed in the arc of a circle on the right-hand side of the dial.

The Petite Lange1 Phases de Lune is worn on the wrist with a white alligator leather strap and a pink gold buckle.
