The Saxonia Thin Is Now Available In Two Sizes

The Saxonia Thin is now offered in either a 37 or 40mm case.

The thinnest A. Lange & Söhne timepiece so far distills the key facets of a Lange watch within a height of just 5.9mm. After its launch in January 2016, the rose- or white-gold Saxonia Thin is now available in two sizes.

The Saxonia Thin in white gold.

In 2011, A. Lange & Söhne presented the Saxonia Thin, enriching the Saxonia family with a model that perpetuates the traditional characteristics of its lineage with lucid sleekness and radiant elegance. Additionally, it is the thinnest model of the entire collection so far.

Five years after its debut, the graceful two-hand watch now presents itself anew with a subtly re-worked dial that reflects the current design of the Saxonia timepiece family. In comparison with the predecessor model, the baton-style hour markers in solid gold have been slightly extended and moved closer to the bezel. This gives the argenté-coloured solid-silver dial extra prominence.

The new Saxonia Thin was originally unveiled at the SIHH in Geneva in January 2016. Now it is available through retailers in rose and white gold, with a case diameter of either 37 or 40mm.

Both versions are powered by the manually wound caliber L093.1 movement which is a scant 2.9mm thick and features the Lange-typical finissage of all parts. Its classic quality hallmarks include the German-silver three-quarter plate decorated with Glashütte ribbing, solarized winding-train wheels, three screwed gold chatons and a hand-engraved balance cock.

A nice view of the case, which is just 5.9mm thick.
