The A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Thin is their beautiful elegant dress watch. Very thin, as it measures just 6.2mm in height and in this case, with a stunning dial. Without hesitation, the Saxonia Thin is a beautiful and perfect dress watch, but the copper blue dial makes it really stand out.
Now, with a list price of €20.800, it doesn’t come cheap. The regular Saxonia Thin, if we can speak from ‘regular’ when talking about these watches, is around €15.000, so it definitely comes at a higher price with this copper blue dial. The process of creating this copper dial is time-consuming though, and it needs to be done very precisely in order to create the ‘starry sky’ effect. The dial is crafted from solid silver and then coated with a very thin layer of goldstone. A process that was – according to Lange – developed in Venice in the 17th century. This layer of goldstone has very small copper oxide crystals in there, causing the beautiful effect it has. So besides the watch itself, with its stunningly finished hand-wound movement, the dial is a piece of art itself as well.
