A LANGE SÖHNE Saxonia Moon Phase

There’s been a moon phase on the Saxonia watch by A. Lange & Söhne since 1994. This year, the German brand is adding a big date to the collection’s starry display. It’s a first! As the Saxony watchmaker’s 16th movement to feature the moon phase, the self-winding L086.5 calibre takes centre stage for its precision and finish. Once it’s been set properly, the display will only differ from the actual position of the Moon by one day every 122.6 years if the watch works non-stop thus providing a 99.998% accurate reproduction of the lunar cycles. A comfortable 70-hour power reserve allows the wearer to gaze at the disc as it rotates its 852 stars and the gold hands gliding over the solid silver dial. The performance takes place in a 40mm white or rose gold case. The watch also has a stop seconds mechanism for accurate time-setting. Price: 28,500 €. Dan Diaconu
