The SAXONIA THIN is the thinnest A. Lange & Söhne watch of all time

As a statement of style and elegance, the watch has everything it takes to become a modern classic. The new white gold version is now coming to the shops.

“Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing that can be added but when there is nothing left to take away.”

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, the author of “The Little Prince”, was not the only one who realised that focussing on the essence often leads to magnificent results in art.

Many contemporary architects and design­ers abide by the maxim “less is more” to enhance constructive logic with an aesthetically convincing ex­pression.

The new SAXONIA THIN in white gold is a present-day ex­ample of the correlation between reduction to the essence and formal perfection.

It gives Lange's product developers an opportunity to deliver a brief and convincing answer to the question as to what constitutes a watch from A. Lange & Söhne.

It is an answer that exemplifies grace in slenderness without accepting the reduction of stability and capacity.

Measuring merely 5.9 millimetres in height, the SAXONIA THIN is by far the thinnest watch ever crafted by the Saxon manufactory.

With a case diameter of 40 millimetres, it nonetheless has a distinctive presence on the wrist.

The gently chamfered bezel gives the balanced dial ample space. Two slender lancet hands and twelve discreet baton hour markers are all it needs to deliver a clear and precise reading of the time.

Despite its purist personality, it can be identified as a genuine A. Lange & Söhne at first sight.

This is assured with Lange-style details such as the striking shape of the lugs or the middle band of the three-part white-gold case decorated with subtle straight graining.

The calibre L093.1 movement with a height of merely 2.9 millimetres, developed especially for the svelte case, is also typical for A. Lange & Söhne. Despite its com­pact size, it stands out with a remark­able power reserve of 72 hours.
