A. Lange & Söhne Gets Slim

  • Carol Besler

At 5.9 mm thick, the new Saxonia Thin ($25,100) is the slimmest watch A. Lange & Söhne has yet produced. This new Saxonia maintains all of Lange’s defining features, with highly decorated movements yet ultraminimalist dials. To Lange, clarity and legibility are paramount. Aside from the logo, just two slender lancet hands and 12 discreet baton hour markers decorate the dial. The manually wound caliber L093.1 movement, the components of which were reduced to their absolute minimum thickness, still features a three-quarter plate, gold chatons, and a swan’s neck regulator, with the usual lavish finishing. The power reserve is 72 hours. (800.408.8147, www.alange-soehne.com)
