A. Lange & Söhne SAXONIA THIN – New Edition

This year brings new design accents for SAXONIA THIN, A. Lange & Söhne's puristic timepiece. The SAXONIA THIN distills the characteristic features of a Lange watch in svelte proportions. With a newly designed dial and case, the so far thinnest timepiece from the eminent Saxon watchmakers stands out with even more stunning looks.
In 2011, A. Lange & Söhne created a modern classic: the SAXONIA THIN. Five years after its debut, the low-silhouette two-hand watch is making a comeback with a subtly reworked dial that reflects the current design of the SAXONIA watch family and emphasises the puristic facets of style.
Compared with the predecessor model, the solid gold baton hour markers have been slightly elongated and shifted closer to the bezel. The retouched, argenté-coloured dial in solid silver radiates harmony and balance.
The new edition of the SAXONIA THIN has the familiar case diameter of 40 millimetres and a height of 5.9 millimetres. It is available in pink or white gold.
The manually wound calibre L093.1 movement is only 2.9 millimetres high but impressively showcases the brand-typical finissage of all components. The classic design elements of each Lange watch, such as the three-quarter plate made of German silver and the hand-engraved balance cock, are lavishly polished and decorated.
