A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia - An Obtainable Grail

Hi,

Well, I managed to finally put together a review on this stunner from A. Lange & Söhne.

If you enjoy macro stuff I think this footage is decent, and it should give you a good idea on what the finishing is like on a $15k watch from one of the world's best watch brands:




If you don't like video, that’s cool, here's a summary:
* Dimensions of 37mm x 7.7mm. Yea its thin. However the case is quite solid/ dense in weight, which helps the watch sit on the wrist.
* Lug to lug of 43mm.
* Lug width of 19mm :(. I guess its not that bad, but 18 or 20 would be great.
* Price is around $19k USD new, however slightly used these can be had for +20% off that. Keep in mind this is the "entry" watch into the brand.
* Simple dial, however very well balanced and finishing is awesome all round.
* On the wrist comfort is good, the lug shape and case weight help the watch sit on the wrist well. Case height means it'll sit under basically any cuff.
* Caseback is fire.

Great watch overall, and one that Im falling completely in love with!

Have a great weekend, and as always hit me up if you have any questions.

Chris

Excellent review! Really enjoyed the high quality close up video, of the dial in particular.

I didn't know "obtainable" and "grail" went in the same sentence :-)

Congrats on getting a great watch. Enjoy!
