A Perfect Luxury Dress Watch: A.Lange & Sohne Saxonia Annual Calendar

Many years ago, in the early days of the channel, I visited Harrods in London and tried on a Langmatik perpetual calendar by A. Lange & Sohne. It subsequently became a grail watch because of its classical style, traditional elegance, and highly refined watchmaking artistry. However, time passed and like most who are watch obsessed, I lost sight of this long term watch goal while falling in love with endless other watches. That said, deep in the back of my mind my admiration and desire for this brand has not diminished. Now that I have access to any luxury watch for review via WatchBox, it’s time to revisit this historic brand from the birthplace of the German watch industry. In general, luxury watches today are more commonly attributed to the Swiss, but it was in fact Germany that pioneered portable timepieces long before Switzerland. Today we take an in-depth look at the A. Lange & Sohne Saxonia Annual Calendar (Ref. 330.026). As I renew my search for the next high-end piece, I wonder if this could be my next grail. Why are they held in such high regard by watch enthusiasts? What makes them considered the best in the world when it comes to high-end watch making? Could this be the perfect haute horology dress watch? In seeking answers to these questions, I took this watch to the iconic Philadelphia Museum of Art to find out if it truly is a masterpiece like the many works displayed on the museum’s walls. Whether or not you’re able to (or choose to) invest in this watch and brand, join me for a horological experience that’s essential viewing for any true watch fan.
