POLL: Lange 1815 Chronograph Dial Preference

Jun 10, 2024,21:25 PM

Okay...it's on, thanks to CR's suggestion. I want to know your thoughts: do you prefer the dial with or without scale (i.e., pulsation scale) on the 1815 Chronograph?

You can answer in the comments, but I will link you a Google Form so you can vote. Anyone expressing their preference in the comments won't be counted in the data since I cannot verify whether you're voting twice. I will post responses after a few days so that people can find the thread and vote. Poll: forms.gle 9

Please let me know if any issues arise with the link.

Photos for reference...note all dial colours and case metals are included in this (silver, black, RG, WG, etc.)
With scale:
Absent scale (Langepedia):

I still find it inelegant, personally. I like the restraint without the scale and less text; just the logo + flyback. But that's what the poll is for!

With scale, definitely.

I'm glad Lange went back to the original design.

Definitely the cleaner dial in this case.

Pulse for me

Hands are longer and I'm a hands man!

Same for me.

Absolutely with the scale, preferably the boutique edition version

Used to own the second generation version without the pulsations scale (see below), and while a great watch, I felt it was just too austere (most Lange's have a rather "sterile" appearance to begin with). Once I got the first-gen Datograph there was no pl...  

This is also what I think.

Scales for me.

And I prefer the OG panda version. ...  

No scales for me, by a large margin.

To me, the hands are better proportioned, I don't care for the brand name in large goofy looking letters around the dial and the scale adds clutter for no function. But that's me and personal taste...

I think this is good reasoning...

My eyes gravitate towards the simpler model

But as mentioned by yacomino it’s too similar to the up & down
