ALS is a horrible illness. Can we call A Lange differently? AL&S? L&S? LS? What do you think?

Why not use always the correct full name? Or AL&S?

No message body

I refer to it as Lange for short

Enough with the ‘soft censorship’

Every minute of the day people are telling others what they can and cannot say, under threat of banishment in some cases. Call it whatever makes you comfortable and let others do the same. Back to watches...

I'm afraid that if we start being PC / hypersensitive / somehow after people in good faith even on watch acronyms, then it'll quickly get more sad than intended on an international forum...

For instance, for Italians "ALS" has no connection whatsoever to the medical disease, whose acronym is SLA... Are you willing to check every acronym in every language before making your next contribution to our forum? Also, since I have nothing against pe...

He died from ALS. He was untypical. Most ALS patients die faster. I don't think that we have to check shorts in any language. But when it is in English or German, than it is not optimal. I think Lange for LS is a good solution.

Fortunately this is a watch forum so we all know that here ALS refers to the brand not the disease

While I'm sensitive to different issues, I see no reason to cross totally disparate things together so as to censure one, especially in a very specific place such as wps. I've donated to CF (cystic fibrosis) efforts every year for the past few years becau...

I don't use "ALS" for that same reason.

I assume a few readers have negative associations to "ALS," and it costs me nothing more to type "Lange" instead, so that has been my choice. "Lange" is also unambiguous.

I agree

I think ALS is a bad way to refer to the brand. I sadly lost my brother to this brute of a disease. When he was diagnosed I felt so guilty and sad that I impulsively sold my datograph. I since re purchased this great watch as I realised that my impulsiven...
