A. Lange & Söhne Presents the Saxonia Thin

#wtsihh / The thinnest A. Lange & Söhne watch is now also available in white gold.

Press release

Just last year, the restyled and expanded Saxonia watch family was enriched with a slender newcomer: Measuring merely 5.9 millimetres in height, the SAXONIA THIN is the slimmest watch ever crafted by the Saxon manufactory. So far available in pink gold only, this model now comes in a noble white-gold version. With a case diameter of 40 millimetres, the watch has a stately and harmonious presence on the wrist. A focus on the essence is the key asset of the SAXONIA THIN: two svelte lancet hands for the hours and minutes as well as twelve delicate baton hour markers on the argentécoloured solid-silver dial are all it takes for a lucid and precise indication of time. But despite its minimalistic face, it is recognisable as an A. Lange & Söhne watch at first sight.

The SAXONIA THIN is an impressive timepiece not only because of its elegant, classic proportions but also by virtue of its intrinsic values. A. Lange & Söhne developed the manually wound calibre L093.1 movement explicitly to achieve a slender silhouette. To limit the calibre height to 2.9 millimetres, each part had to be reduced to its absolutely necessary dimensions. Nonetheless, no compromise was tolerated, neither as regards reliability nor with respect to perseverance: when fully wound, the watch will run for 72 hours.

Needless to say, the movement is endowed with all the typical quality hallmarks of the brand. This includes the meticulous artisanal finissage of all parts beneath the three-quarter plate in untreated German silver, which itself is decorated with Glashütte ribbing. Developed by Ferdinand A. Lange as far back as 1864, the basic shape of the plate optimises the stability of the movement and at the same time affords an unobstructed view of the handengraved balance cock and the indexless oscillator. A balance spring manufactured in-house times the shockresistant screw balance to beat at a frequency of 21,600 semi-oscillations per hour. The solarised wheels of the winding train, as prominently integrated in the plate as are the three gold chatons secured with thermally blued screws, contribute to the gracefulness of the movement.
