    Saxonia Thin 37mm - Grail Worthy?

    Ok, so I know what forum I’m in and also that the 37mm Thin is also probably the least “grail worthy” in the Lange portfolio. However, I’m a long time fan of the brand and the design speaks to me. However, I’ve never had the opportunity to see one in the flesh. Does it live up to expectations, or is it simply an entry point to the brand and a diluted version of the real thing?

    One of the best things about Lange is the finishing is fantastic for each and every piece in the range no matter the price point.

    You pay more for complication or materials bit Lange does not make it's best finishing optional.

    Really commendable in my view.

    That’s what I’ve heard - and as much as I like some of the more complicated pieces, I actually like the simplicity of the Saxonia Thin design. I’ll probably decide to sell two or three really good watches (IWC Mark XVIII/Tudor BB/Nomos/one of my Sinns - undecided) to partially offset the purchase, so not an easy decision. I’ve come to the conclusion you can only wear one watch at a time - want to make sure it’s worth it. Sounds like I need to see one in the flesh.

    Seeing Lange's watches in person convinced me that I just had to have one. Seeing the Saxonia Thin in person convinced me that I'd even be happy with their "entry level" watch.

    I tried on the white gold/white dial version in the boutique the other day. It is a really beautiful watch

    It's definitely not "diluted," as others have said! The finishing is spectacular. Personally, I prefer to see a moving second hand on a watch, so that particular model wouldn't be my first choice. I'd go with something like the 35mm Saxonia (small wrist here). But if you either like or don't mind the lack of a second hand, then the Sax Thin is a great choice.

    I've tried it on and it is definitely grailworthy. Finishing is superb, and I love the simplicity.
