A. Lange & Söhne SAXONIA THIN in White Gold

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

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 argenté-coloured solid-silver dial are all it takes for a lucid and precise indication of time.

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. 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.
