Datograph plat. with bracelet

Feb 10, 2019,14:35 PM

This is my first time posting with photos. I have owned the orig. datograph for years, love the watch, but have found it a little top heavy. I was in a store in TriBeCa in New York City recently and a ss bracelet caught my eye. This looked so similar to the Lange plat bracelet. I called the company and ordered the 20mm. This is a game changer. The bracelet totally balances the watch. I have been wearing it every day for 3 weeks. I absolutely love this combination for comfort and aesthetics.

Bracelet is very smooth at lugs.

I thought the same thing but the edges are buttery smooth. And the expert who put the bracelet on and who knows Lange watches very well assured me it would not damage the lugs. And I would say the movement of the bracelet is very smooth so this is not eve... 

Looks great in photos.

One of my favorite watches, but I don't think I could justify a bracelet (ss or pt) for it.

Comfort and balance.

Thanks Mr. White. I know this was not the intent for the watch, but it really works for me. Maybe it's my preference toward bracelets with heavier watches.

Oh, if it suits you, by all means. I am always of the mind that one should wear what they want.

For me persona;;y, the bracelet doesn't work as I am used to it without. But I do understand and appreciate the change of pace. Enjoy it, looks great.

Look really nice

I like the new look. I used to own the RG Dato silver dial but sold it away. I had same feeling like you that the watch always top heavy feeling when wear with leather strap.

Leather vs. bracelet

Thanks Mineral. The dato is on the sporty side. Something gravitates me to leather for dress and metal for sport. And with this ss bracelet, I do not feel the leaning of the watch, even though the bracelet is loose. It just feels more balanced on the wris...

Looks awesome with bracelet

Different look as well

Thanks Mikesr. And now I can wear it in the nyc hot summers. And always have the option to put the leather on to change the look.

Great look.

I’d spring for the matching platinum bracelet but this suffices nicely too! Congrats and ENJOY!

BABKA, thanks for your confidence in my ability to pay for a platinum bracelet. lol. But of course, ss is lighter on the pocket and wrist.

Looks great

Like yourself, I've loved the look of the ALS platinum, but cannot justify price. I recently picked up a Beads of Rice myself, for this same watch, but the bracelet is smaller than the bar, and doesn't taper, and it ruins the look for me... would you mind...

Chap, thanks for your compliment and I hope you get this bracelet. I PM you because I wasn't sure if I would violate rules by posting details here.

I love this bracelet...

I had PM you. Can you share with me the contact? Thanks.


 By: nice2guy : March 24th, 2019-15:56
CL, I sent you an email response. Thanks for your observation.

I love it! I did the same thing with a different model...
