216.027, ‘Stealth’ Saxonia Boutique Edition, White Gold
A ref. 216.027, a fifth generation Saxonia that was a boutique-only edition with a ‘Stealth’ anthracite dial and made in 37mm, not the standard production’s 35mm. In the words of Tim Mosso, ‘It’s the sort of watch that would’ve been crafted had Philippe Dufour been born in Germany.’ The Saxonia remains Lange’s simplest offering but also one of their most attractive, a dress watch to rival any Calatrava in finish, proportion, or style. It is a design that while modern will refuse to age, this is an archetype of German three-handers.
