I prefer numerals ‘eaten’, I like the 1815 with the partial 6 beneath and prefer dials rendered like that rather than a blank space / missing numerals or batons whatever is used.

It is very stunning.

But I am partial to the 402.032, since it is extremely clean and well laid out: (Langepedia) ...  

Lange went from the busier version, to your cleaner version, and then back to the busier version again.

I was always curious about Lange's decision-making behind these changes. I assume the market preferred the busier version, but I was never sure.

I never understood it.

This clean version is the best, in my estimation. No one needs a pulsation scale or a tachymetre scale on a gold, dress chronograph.

Now we get into the dangerous philosophical territory of, "Can a chronograph be a dress watch?" :)

It would be an interesting poll question, though -- to see if people prefer the busier version with the measurement scales, or the cleaner version without them.

It's out there now!

If nothing else!

Here's what I heard:

I heard that Lange had trouble selling the clean dial 1815 chrono because a lot of customers thought it looked just like the up/down, at twice the price. The busier version (which I also prefer) was more immediately differentiable.

That's too bad.

At least it means the market is less crowded for people like me. Everyone else can have their pulsation scale models; I'll stick to the cleaner iteration

To me the "stealth complication" aspect is a plus, a bit like havin a tourbillon but not displaying it on the dial side.

 By: CR : June 11th, 2024-00:15
I figured Lange launched the cleaner version to differentiate it more from the Datograph. I liked the clean version a lot, but then they came out with the 1815 Chrono Boutique Edition as their first foray back to a busier dial, and I thought the blue feat... 

Very nice!

Wear it in great health.

It's a gorgeous piece Tony.

Yes, I don't get the aesthetics of numbers that are almost completely obscured, but traditional customs are what they are in the world of watch design. It doesn't detract from the overall enjoyment of such a masterpiece at all. Cheers, Filip
