Comparing the two
Taking some time today to appreciate a little more my two Lange's. I've owned the 1815 for a little over 4 years now and that has been my go to watch for most days, as is evident from the scratches and hairlines on the case. No, I won't polish it off as I like how it looks and that it's shown signs of a life and journey.
I'm not a fan of complications, for a couple of reasons, servicing being one, and I do not like to spend time setting it up when it stops, so time only watches are usually my preference. No concern required for dates, AM/PM etc. Set to the time and be on my way.
I recently added the Saxonia to the collection, and is now the only rose gold watch that I have, and I like it a lot. Comparing this Saxonia to the 1815, the 1815 comes across as the more brash older brother who does some heavy lifting and handles a good mix of boardroom decisions while also rolling up sleeves every now and then, while the Saxonia is that younger brother who shows up in boardrooms with a well tailored suit and does more of the mental calculations. Both with very different levels of a commanding finesse, so to speak.
The case work is similar, can't say that they wear differently besides the size of 35mm and 38.5mm, and both are very comfortable on my 6.75 inch wrist. So different characters, and yet does look very similar at a glance. On the wrist, they feel significantly different - the applied indices and the printed numerals probably has a major contribution to that, but I can't really explain it. One feels casual and carefree, the other a little more formal, though I don't think it is out of place with a t shirt and jeans, but then again, this is a personal preference.
One has been with me 4 years and is a keeper, the other just joined the stable, and I have the same feeling that I've had when I bought the 1815 back then, so I have a good feeling that it will stay too.
