Boring Back?

... Probably. Maybe that's why Lange transitioned to a transparent caseback in 1997. 

(Did you notice the patina developing on this early yellow gold Lange 1?)

Not at all. I love solid casebacks.

Then again, there is lots of good to see inside a AL&S!

Is best with see-through case back!

Sorry to say, but ALS needs a saphire case back!

True, this caseback has no particular appeal

but sometimes, treasures are best hidden. And once in a while, you can ask your watchmaker to take a picture/show you what's inside. I can definitely live with that

I like solid case backs!

Nowadays, I'd prefer a nice solid gold case back over a transparent one. The sapphire case back probably costs less to make than a gold one - maybe...

+1 No small savings…

To disturb

I am tired of skeletons.

These solid casebacks were available upon request for many years, I think even after Richemont bought Lange...

... but nobody got them (unless they wanted a custom-engraved caseback). I recently asked if Lange still did that, and I was told no -- they don't even do the custom engraved casebacks any longer.

I think this looks beautiful!

Knowing what's inside makes it all the more special!
