Prestigious German watch manufacture A. Lange & Söhne has launched a SAXONIA THIN in pink gold in a limited edition of 50 watches.
The fascinating interplay of reflections on the blue copper-glittered face of this new SAXONIA THIN watch evokes images of a star-studded nocturnal sky. The solid-silver dial of the slender two-hand watch is coated with a thin layer of blue gold flux.
Made of 18-carat pink gold, its case measures 6.2mm thickness and 40mm diameter. Thanks to the characteristic camber of the strap lugs, the elegant watch ensures a perfectly snug fit on the wrist. The slender hour and minute hands as well as the applied hour markers are in pink gold to match the case material.
The narrow bezel of the case puts the focus on the dial. The optical effect of the gold flux can be displayed to full advantage on its perfectly flat surface, similar to the view through a telescope.
The manually wound calibre L093.1 of this timepiece was developed and crafted in-house. With a height of merely 2.9 millimetres, it is the manufactory’s thinnest calibre but nonetheless provides a power reserve of 72 hours. Its twofold assembly and the artisanal finissage of the parts reflect the high standards upheld by A. Lange & Söhne.
Brand-typical quality hallmarks include the three-quarter plate with Glashütte ribbing as well as polished chamfers and bevels. A noteworthy detail: the elaborately flat-polished end piece in which the escape wheel is secured.
It is visibly integrated into the three-quarter plate as has often been the case in historic pocket watches. The chamfer of this flat steel part is matched to the chamfer of the three-quarter plate after it has been fitted by hand. As in pocket watches, the ratchet and crown wheels are decorated with solarisation and visibly integrated into the plate.
The freely oscillating screw balance beats at a frequency of 21,600 semi-oscillations an hour. It is located beneath the hand-engraved balance cock. Three screwed, manually polished gold chatons hold the going train, reflecting the brand’s tradition in craftsmanship.
This elegant wristwatch comes with a shiny, dark-blue leather strap with a solid-pink-gold prong buckle.
