As a part of the permanent collections, the classic Saxonia timepieces are continuously improved and given new life

In the past 20 years, the luxury watchmaker has presented an array of two-hand timepieces, equipped with a calendar as well as chronograph functions. At the Salon International de la Haute Horrologerie (SIHH) trade fair in Geneva, the brand unveiled a new 37mm timepiecethat comes in two varying colours: Rhodium gold and pink gold. 

The modified dial design is a first for the Saxonia collection. Just above the six o'clock appliques rests a minute scale, described as a new development that brightens the timepiece. Other features of the manually winding creation include the twin baton appliques that represent three, six, nine and twelve o'clock on the dial. With a slightly extended minute marker, the timepiece also boasts a 45-hour power reserve.

The detailed finishing in the movements including the hand engraved balance cock, makes the timepiece more unique. While the dial remains the same solid silver and grey, the cases have been given a new gold sheen.
