NEW CORE GUARD STRUCTURE

An inner case is installed in a box-shaped frame formed by screws that securely connect the bezel, case back and band connection pieces. A stronger structure is realized by absorbing shocks with the exterior instead of the core.

BAND STRUCTURE

Fine-resin parts are firmly fixed by screws to the base of the thick, soft urethane band, which is then securely attached to the case by metal parts and large bolts. This unique, newly developed tough structure has reinforced the band connection section, where metal and resin intersect

The watches also come with premium features such as tough solar technology and Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping, which provides accurate timekeeping virtually anywhere via radio signals from up to six different transmitters worldwide.

DOWNSIZING

Refinement of the exterior design by improving the connection structure and developing a smaller module has reduced the case to 55.4mm vertically (12:00-6:00 axis), 51.92mm horizontally (3:00-9:00 axis), and 14.39mm in thickness.

PREMIUM METAL FINISHING

Sallaz polishing, said to be the ultimate polishing technology, produces exceptionally smooth mirror-finished surfaces on sloping parts of metal products. Other processing techniques such as hairline, knurling (crown) and honing (screw shafts) processing are also included in the thoroughly detailed finishing conducted by the skilled hands of craftsmen.

This enables at-a-glance checking of the current time in either location with no troublesome operation. An LED illuminates the dial with bright light to ensure visibility in the dark.

About G-SHOCK
CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as ‘the toughest watch of all time’. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up”.

A. Lange & Sohne – SAXONIA THIN Copper Blue Gold

















A. Lange & SohneSAXONIA THIN in Copper Blue White Gold

Celestial canopy for the wrist

A copper-blue dial imparts fascinating depth and charisma to the thinnest A. Lange & Söhne timepiece.

The elegant personality of the latest SAXONIA THIN version is based on the "less is more" principle. Its elegant white-gold case is merely 6.2 millimetres thick and has a diameter of 39 millimetres. The case colour is echoed by the two slender hour and minute hands as well as the twelve hour markers in rhodiumed gold. The hands and appliques contrast crisply against the background of the copper-blue dial.

It is crafted from solid silver and coated with a thin layer of subtly shimmering goldstone. The precious facing requires an elaborate manufacture process that was originally developed in Venice in the 17th century. Microscopically small copper oxide crystals saturate the deep blue with choreographed reflections that are reminiscent of the stars in the blue midnight sky. A dark-blue hand-stitched alligator leather strap rounds out the expressiveness of the watch.

Its puristic elegance is complemented by a manually wound movement finished to the highest standards of Saxon watchmaking artistry. The technical features of the manufacture calibre L093.1 – it is a scant 2.9 millimetres thick – include a flat mainspring barrel which delivers a maximum power reserve of 72 hours despite its compact size.

The upper sides of the ratchet and crown wheels are solarised and visibly integrated into the three-quarter plate decorated with Glashütte ribbing. The escapement that adjoins the three-quarter plate is a special eye-catcher: A classic screw balance with a manufacture-made hairspring oscillates beneath the hand-engraved balance cock with the characteristic whiplash spring.

The polished gold chatons, secured with blued screws, accentuate the character of a Lange watch that radiates perfection down to the very last detail.

With its case height of merely 5.9 millimetres, the SAXONIA THIN is the flattest watch crafted by Lange so far.
