A. Lange & Söhne SAXONIA THIN in White Gold

Measuring merely 5.9mm in height, the A. Lange & Söhne SAXONIA THIN is the thinnest watch ever crafted by the prestigious Saxon manufactory. Now the brand presents a new variation of this model in white gold.

Introduced in 2011, the SAXONIA THIN is an impressive timepiece not only because of its elegant, classic proportions but also by virtue of its intrinsic values.

With a case diameter of 40mm, this classic watch has a stately and harmonious presence on the wrist. The new white gold SAXONIA THIN (reference 211.026) features an argenté-coloured solid-silver dial. With two svelte lancet hands for the hours and minutes as well as twelve delicate baton hour markers, it offers a lucid and precise indication of time.

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. When fully wound, the watch will run for 72 hours.

The calibre L093.1 is endowed with all the typical quality hallmarks of A. Lange & Söhne. 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 hand-engraved balance cock and the indexless oscillator.

A balance spring manufactured in-house times the shock-resistant 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.

This white gold SAXONIA THIN model (reference 211.026) comes with a black crocodile strap.
