A. Lange & Söhne: Blue Series22 September 2017
Without a doubt, the colour blue has always inspired artists and scientists. From Leonardo da Vinci, who described the colour of the sky as an amalgamation of light and darkness, to Albrecht Dürer, who likened pure gold to the natural ultramarine extracted from lapis lazuli. From Hokusai’s Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji, to Picasso’s Blue Period and to Van Gogh’s The Starry Night.
Today, A. Lange & Söhne presents four new watches with a new and fascinating deep-blue dial, two manually wound and two self-winding models. These are the Lange 1 (€.32.500), Lange 1 Daymatic (€.39.400), Saxonia (€.15.300) and Saxonia Automatic (€.23.300), whose white-gold cases are now paired with galvanised dials in solid silver.
Polished hands and rhodiumed gold appliques accentuate the striking contrast. Hand-stitched dark-blue alligator leather straps and solid white-gold prong buckles complete the stylish look.
The four Blue Series models feature proprietary manufacture calibres that showcase all Lange-style quality hallmarks, from the artisanal finissage of all movement parts to the elaborate twofold assembly process.
