Congratulation on your 5078P.......

Nov 04, 2009,13:11 PM
 

it has been my dream watch for a long time only because of its amazing dial design.
I love it but I think I will be too 'scared' to wear it often ;-)
I want to wear all my watches as casually as possible, even for my simplcity. And now I'm very interested in only Time only watches.
Simplicity is my grail piece.......may I know when did you order yours?
Mine has been delayed , almost 5 years ......I'm so want my Simplicity to arrive soooooooooon smile

Dial design of Langematik Anniversary....

 
 By: CL : November 4th, 2009-06:11
I have always loved the classic dial design of Langematik Anniversary and I note that both Dufour Simplicity and Patek 5078P have similar design too. I wonder to you guys , out of the 3 such similar designs, do you have a preference and if yes, why? The s... 

It is difficult to just talk about the dial, CL

As, for example, I think that we have to speak about the whole watch to explain why our love for the Anniversary. It is, indeed, less aristocratic or elitist than a PP, less confidential than a Dufour, but I love it. The movement? Yes, it is automatic whi... 

AND Yes....you

and Schen definitely get me hook on it ;-) This will also be my first enamel dial and I'm glad that Lange does keep stock for this dial so I can wear it with ease The price point is really great compare to the other 2 examples. And each has their 'con' ..... 

Clang! We have the same taste!

I have at one time owned the Anniversary because of it's stately appearance and great size for my wrist, probably the very same reasons it attracted you in the first place. Owned it twice in fact but ultimately not a keeper. It's great for casual as well ...

Congratulations John on this marvelous new addition! You know Anniversary is my most favorite watch. Among the three watches that you mentioned, at the moment, my favorite is the Anniversary. This may change after I have my Simplicity on my wrist for a wh... 

Thanks Song....

You know you are a big part in making me going this route It's hard to take my eyes off your wrist whenever you wear yours...... I keep dissuading myself that it is an automatic , well.....I give in now I too love to hae a RG Simlicity with Faux Ename dia... 

You said it so well Nicolas

I am with you. On the automatic movement part (BTW, 5078 is automatic), I don't have a strong preference to either manual or auto. But being a daily wearer, an automatic certainly helps. Also, on the practical side, one of the nice features that I like An... 

Just wonderful Nicolas :-) [nt]

My personal favorite...

 
 By: patrick_y : November 4th, 2009-15:14
I personally like the Patek 5078P dial. However, another favorite I like as well is the 5196P dial. Although the 5196P is popular, I look at this watch as perhaps the ultimate simple dress watch. I especially like small-second subdials for my watches, whi... 

Congrat, CL!

Welcome to the Anniversary club My favorite is 5078P black dial - because the thinner lettering looks nicer and the shape of the hands looks more handsome... More "adult" look than Anniversary. But way beyond my league. Cronoswiss "Orea" has similar dial.... 

Thanks Ken :-)

I'm eagerly awaiting for the arrival of the watch *CL

Congrats on your acquisition CL!

It's a fine and worthy one, although regretably for me a no-go, due to movement type ( an automatic) and size ( under 40mm). Enjoy Stephen

Thanks Stephen...I'm not sure

if I can get use to the automatic movement but I guess it's a watch worthy to give it a try If I get use to the automatic movement , man...there will be alot of choices out there awaiting me ;-) Vianney Antiqua is definitely one of them *CL

CL, congratulations on your new piece.............

I shall look forward to seeing the photos. Thank you for such an interesting thread. I would dearly love to own a Simplicity and would happily sell all my watches just have one. CL, I hope that your wait is not to unbearable. But I reckon that the Anniver...
