Clean Break

Bespoke - - EMPEROR 1688 -

Given that we’ve been huge fans of A. Lange & Söhne for decades now, but have never re­ally looked twice at their Sax­o­nia line, imag­ine how odd it must have been to be pre­sented the brand’s ex­cit­ing 2016 nov­el­ties, yet be fix­ated on their new 23,500 USD Sax­o­nia Thin. It made no sense, es­pe­cially that it hasn’t even changed all that much. Still avail­able in just pink or white gold, the new model sticks with the 2011 ver­sion’s case (mea­sur­ing 40mm in di­am­e­ter and 5.9mm in thick­ness) move­ment, hands, crown and lugs but it gets a cleaner and more min­i­mal­is­tic look thanks to a re­vised sil­ver dial and new gold ba­ton hour mark­ers. It’s prob­a­bly just a case of mi­nor ad­just­ments mak­ing a world of dif­fer­ence.
