A LANGE & SOHNE SAX­O­NIA THIN

Robb Report (Malaysia) - - Sihh -

In the vein of less is more, the man­ual-wound Sax­o­nia Thin in its 39mm white gold case is a sub­tle study of el­e­gance.

Slen­der hands, rhodi­umed gold hour mark­ers and a cop­per-blue dial an­i­mate this 6.2mm-thick time­piece. The min­eral flecks of shim­mer­ing gold­stone on its solid sil­ver dial is rem­i­nis­cent of aven­turine – a word de­rived from the Ital­ian word ‘a ven­tura’ mean­ing ‘by chance’. And it was from man­u­fac­tur­ing pro­cesses orig­i­nat­ing from 17th-cen­tury Venice which A Lange & Sohne latched upon to po­si­tion mi­cro­scopic cop­per ox­ide crys­tals against the dial’s deep blue back­ground.
