I was hoping to post this earlier but got distracted. Any other Big Dates showing the 25th? Let's see 'em!

I suppose a prompt from CR to share a big date pic is as good a reason as any for a first post on the forum! ...  

As vitalsigns said, welcome to you and your classic Lange 1!

Does the date window gold frame have some patina on it, or is that just the lighting?

I knew an eagle eye like yours would notice that on this pic! It's actually just the lighting, as all of the rose gold applied bits are even in color / tone in real life.

Welcome, C W.

Fantastic idea!

An older picture.... ...  

Indeed my friend.

A most underappreciated piece, unfortunately.

Love the Sax-o-mat......

It's such and underrated model. (like the Cabaret) I'm out of town or I would have shown the 25th as well, instead I'll post an old shot 4 days off! ...

Never tire of that Sax-0-Mat movement.

Back in the 1990's and early 2000's.....

When these watches were produced Lange used to allow you to swap the hands out, they no longer allow it. Good catch btw, I didn’t notice the blue hands at first glance!

I did not know that! Too bad no longer an option!

A most beautiful thread! All pics here show Lange at its best.

I do not own one so can’t contribute, but I thoroughly enjoy what I see here.

My Dato 25th

I acquired it more than 15 years ago, but

never knew the nickname until I read it from some literature well after. So that's a bonus 😉

CR, do you still have the Yellow Jacket?

 By: TonyR : July 1st, 2022-03:17
Aside from the Pisa or a few other one off's that may be the rarest Dato of all.

I do.

 By: CR : July 1st, 2022-04:24
I've always loved the look of a YG case with a black dial, and the Yellowjacket is the only YG/black dial watch that Lange ever made.

Once again, I forgot about Big Date Day until now! :)

Any others wearing a Big Date today? ...  

What a beauty this one!

I wonder - what!s the story with the blue hands on the Langematik?

Thanks Alp, I hope you're well! I bought it preowned like that 19 years ago.

There are two possibilities: Either a prior owner had Lange change the hands, or the AD ordered it with blue hands.
