There is nothing entry-level about the Saxonia Thin 37mm. Sure, it’s the least expensive watch in a catalog of extremely high-end modern timepieces, but the two are not the same thing at all. While pared down in looks and number of functions, the new Saxonia Thin is every bit a full-fledged A. Lange & Söhne watch from A to Z. The dial is beautiful and does an excellent job executing on the simple functionality. The case is comfortable, moderately sized, and in proportion to the dial and movement. And then there’s the movement, which is, without a doubt, the absolute best modern movement that you can obtain for under $15,000, no question about it.
I would never suggest that $14,800 isn’t objectively still a lot of money (another reason this can’t possibly be considered a true “entry-level” watch), but I really feel that with the Saxonia Thin 37mm, that price feels like a steal. There have been too many price hikes over the last few years and this is one of the few brand new watches that I would describe today as presenting outstanding value for money, especially in this segment of the market.
So, while the Saxonia Thin 37mm might not be the most interesting watch A. Lange & Söhne makes, I can say one thing for sure: It is a damn good one.
