The Datograph Up/Down collection is part of the Saxonia watch family that was launched in 1994 along with the rebirth of A. Lange & Söhne. Whilst the focus of a Saxonia is to find an optimal mechanical solution, the ease of readability and functionality provided by a mechanical chronograph combined to create an amalgamation of ingenuity and elegance.


What is even more intriguing is that the current watch is a part of the “Lumen” series launched by the German powerhouse in 2010, making this modern classic even more desirable than it already was. This impressive timepiece released in 2018 is simply mind-blowing with its semitransparent sapphire crystal dial which glows in dark displays. Thanks to luminous pigments powered by natural light coating the central hands, power reserve indicator and outsize date display housed within a fine platinum case, the distinctive design elements of the watch become literally dazzling.


Not only excelling in aesthetics, this timepiece also embodies cutting-edge craftsmanship as seen in the incredible depth of the manually wound calibre L951.7. The movement is nothing short of astonishment as the complicated flyback chronograph is spaciously decorated into an architectural works of art. Limited to only 200 pieces, it is an ultra rare opportunity to acquire this piece of beauty which is truly worth admiring in years to come.
