So if you are on the lookout for some shooting stars then this is the right time to look up!
The 2020 A. Lange & Söhne SAXONIA THIN commemorates this fascinating phenomenon with a solid silver dial that has been coated with a ultra-thin layer of copper-blue goldstone. This gives the dial the deep blue sparkle that reflects the starry night sky.
Crafted in a 39mm white gold case with a thickness of just 6.2mm, the SAXONIA THIN is powered by Calibre L093.1 concealing the flattest movement from A. Lange & Söhne. Furthermore the white gold thin hands and appliques contrast perfectly against the deep blue dial. Furthermore the dark blue leather strap with a solid white-gold buckle completes the entire aesthetic of the watch.
