At the SIHH 2016, A. Lange & Sohne accompanied a refreshed version of its generally rich and circumspect watch, the Saxonia Thin , their vision of a thin and refined dress watch. Following the reports on the whole Saxonia assortment ( see the 2015 releases ), the 2016 Saxonia Thin included longer lists and a cleaner dial. The entirety of that was accessible in a somewhat huge 40mm size and as of now, the thin Lange will likewise be accessible with another instance of 37mm, for a much more refined look. And the best is that when the 40mm is estimated more than 24,000 USD, this 37mm version comes for 14,800 USD, becoming Lange’s passage level watch! Furthermore, presently that’s a huge deal.
The A. Lange & Sohne Saxonia Thin is outwardly a straightforward watch, which just shows two hands (hours and minutes). The dial is as spotless as possible anticipate from such a watch, with basic applied twirly doos for the lists and the logo of the brand. Nonetheless, thinking about the 40mm width, it very well may be viewed as – A – too enormous to even consider being known as an appropriate dress watch – B – altogether too spotless, as the dial is somewhat unfilled and very huge (pick the correct notice). We, at Monochrome-Watches, consistently will in general guide you to more modest watches, realizing that size doesn’t matter regarding class. It’s not that we’ll consistently tell “the more modest, the better”, however as far as dress watches, a touch of scaling down is constantly welcomed. We previously cherished the A. Lange & Sohne Saxonia Thin for its smoothness and we’ll positively appreciate it considerably more with its new 37mm diameter.
As we didn’t see the new A. Lange & Sohne Saxonia Thin 37mm in the metal yet, we can’t truly contend on the advantages. From the photographs, you could undoubtedly say that the distinction stays unpretentious. In any case, regarding extents and visual experience on the wrist, 3mm is a huge improvement. We wouldn’t be amazed that what can be seen as a too spotless dial on the 40mm, by one way or another somewhat empty, could well change into an ideal equilibrium of polish and beauty. Things are consistently a matter of viewpoint and extents, and if the difference of an enormous case with a thin profile can at times prompt a watch too “flat”, the extents of the A. Lange & Sohne Saxonia Thin 37mm could be completely different.
The 37mm version of the A. Lange & Sohne Saxonia Thin keeps similar credits as the 40mm. It just varies from the measurement. The thickness – well the thinness for this situation – is at 5.9mm. The dial is as yet unchanged and the files are showing a similar plan. Same goes for the development, partaken in the two versions, which implies that the view from the caseback on the 37mm will be much more lovely, taking into account that the development will better fill the case. The type L093.1 is a physically wound development, estimating just 2.9mm in stature. It boats 72 hours of force hold, which, thinking about the super thin development and a solitary barrel, is somewhat comfortable. The completing is comparable to the remainder of the Lange creation: German Silver plates and extensions, hand-made enrichment of the multitude of parts (even on non-noticeable sides), strong gold chatons and blued screws and, obviously, the common engraved cockerel connect. German haute horlogerie at its best.
Like its 40mm kin, the A. Lange & Sohne Saxonia Thin 37mm will be accessible in both 18k pink gold and 18k white gold, with coordinating hands, files and clasp. Accessible now through true stores and retailers.
The best is obviously the cost. The 40mm is accessible for 24,500 USD. This 37mm release of the Saxon Thin comes against 14,800 USD, which, let us get straight to the point, is only a deal! A super thin watch, with the nature of A. Lange & Sohne and the magnificence of the German-style development for under 15,000… What more do you need?. More subtleties on www.alange-soehne.com .
