Lange Creates a Celestial Canopy for the Wrist

Lange Creates a Celestial Canopy for the Wrist

January 31, 2018

A copper-blue dial imparts fascinating depth and charisma to the thinnest A. Lange & Söhne timepiece.

The elegant personality of the latest Saxonia Thin version is based on the “less is more” principle. Its elegant white-gold case is merely 6.2mm thick and has a diameter of 39mm. The case color is echoed by the two slender hour and minute hands as well as the 12 hour markers in rhodiumed gold.

The hands and appliques contrast crisply against the background of the copper-blue dial. It is crafted from solid silver and coated with a thin layer of subtly shimmering goldstone. The precious facing requires an elaborate manufacture process that was originally developed in Venice in the 17th century. Microscopically small copper oxide crystals saturate the deep blue with choreographed reflections that are reminiscent of the stars in the blue midnight sky. A dark-blue hand-stitched alligator leather strap rounds out the expressiveness of the watch.

Its elegance is complemented by a manually wound movement finished to the highest standards of Saxon watchmaking artistry.

The technical features of the manufacture caliber L093.1 – it is a scant 2.9mm thick – include a flat mainspring barrel which delivers a maximum power reserve of 72 hours despite its compact size.

The upper sides of the ratchet and crown wheels are solarized and visibly integrated into the three-quarter plate decorated with Glashütte ribbing. The escapement that adjoins the three-quarter plate is a special eye-catcher: A classic screw balance with a manufacture-made hairspring oscillates beneath the hand-engraved balance cock with the characteristic whiplash spring.

The polished gold chatons, secured with blued screws, accentuate the character of a Lange watch that radiates perfection down to the very last detail.
