Apart from being timekeeping tool, a watch is just as much of a statement of style these days. It gives the world an impression of who you are, within a fleeting moment of a handshake or a flash of the wrist. If you're seeking the perfect gift for a lady with exacting standards for the accessories she sports as part of her look, a timepiece that balances impeccable craftsmanship — and sparkles in its own right — would be the ideal choice.

With an elegant silhouette and highly accurate movement, the Saxonia watches by A. Lange & Söhne truly stand the test of time. Boasting a history that dates back to 1845, the Dresden watch brand prides itself in supreme mechanical precision. Featuring elegantly hand-stitched crocodile straps in brown and white, these timepieces are suitable for every day wear or special occasions. Mother of pearl dials — in colour schemes matching the straps — add to the polished look of the design, the gradient surface reflecting a gentle sheen when a ray of light hits.

The hands and baton hour markers come in rhodiumed gold, indicating the hours, minutes and seconds, which is shown on a subsidiary dial. The case of the watch is framed by 18-carat white gold, but the real stunner of the whole piece is undoubtedly the ring of 60 brilliant-cut diamonds surrounding it. The colour of these beautiful stones is Top Wesselton, at approximately 0.95 carats. A sapphire-crystal caseback showcases the movement — a chance to admire at the mechanical brilliance of the design.

The Saxonia models balance a mesmerising appearance with remarkable durability. A shock-resistant screw balance is used, and the manually wound manufacture calibre L941.2 inside the watch guarantees superb timekeeping accuracy for a long time to come. When the watch is fully wound, a power reserve of 45 hours is assured. The models are decorated and assembled by hand — a mark of excellence and high standards for the watchmaker. A three-quarter plate made of untreated German silver and a hand-engraved balance cock round out the timeless features of the watch.

The holiday season is a time to show your loved ones the depths of your affection and care for them. Nothing communicates the message better like a timepiece that is truly timeless — eye-catching from afar and equally spectacular when admired up close. To express your eternal love, look no further than the sophisticated Saxonia watches that can be worn for years ahead.
