Happy New Year everyone. I was playing around and taking a few photos so had a bit of fun with these 2 I acquired in 2020. Both 3 handers that I love for different reasons 😁😉

Still waiting on some bespoke straps for the FPJ CB 😜

Both terrific, but the Lange for me!

I'm curious if you noticed either of these being more accurate than the other since they are both chronometry-oriented watches?

My CB is the most accurate watch I own.

 By: Skyrider01 : January 1st, 2021-14:52
It's pretty much right on when I wear it. When there is any deviation, it is no more than 1spd. The one time I tested the power reserve, it ran for 64 hours (I believe they advertise 56 hours)

You're definitely more qualified than I am to comment on the accuracy of Lange vs. Journe! ;)

 By: jleno : January 2nd, 2021-11:33
I guess it's really isochronism that should be tested against the PLM, so accuracy by itself wouldn't be enough. But I'll leave it to you to do a fair test. I'm eager to find out the result

Indeed the CB does have 2 barrels to even out the torque Jordan but the idea of the fusée and chain is that it gives constant force and torque REGARDLESS of the amount of power reserve in the barrel/barrels...

 By: holdemchamp1225 : January 5th, 2021-11:44
Whereas other watches, regardless of the number of barrels cannot do that. The multiple barrels help distribute torque equally BUT once the power reserve is depleted, they do not provide the same torque (hence the use of constant force systems) 😉 Hope tha... 

Understandable choice Ivan 👌 😉

I know!!☺️☺️

This is why I carefully used ‘reaches’. I know most of us here would still seek the next even if our dream watch in every aspect was handed to us. Have a great start to the year!! Alex

Exactly Alex 😉👍

Excellent combo. The PLM is the winner for me.

 By: andyhud : January 1st, 2021-11:56
And that strap with the PLM is great. The hidden joy of the PLM on the wrist must be fun... it’s very much “if you know, you know” 😉

Agreed 👍😉😁

Legendary watches

Both so amazing and beautiful.

Excellent choices my friend

Quite the pair of three handers.

Also curious to hear what time keeping has been like.

It rocks serious,Justin😍😍

Indeed 😉👍

Like the PLM wg with this band. Gives a very sporty..

 By: emcquillan : January 1st, 2021-15:57
And down to earth look for this masterpiece. PLM is my all time three handed watch. Very cool. Best,

Lange is beautiful

 By: Seconds : January 1st, 2021-16:03

Many thanks and agreed 😁

Happy New Year my friend.

Good one, but true! ;)

Thanks Tony 😉👍🙏

Fantastic duo!

Happy new year & best wishes to you and your family 🙏🏾🎉

FPJ for me

The FPJ is so sexy...woo la la!

Pour Le Merite

 By: rnaden : January 2nd, 2021-04:33
The watch has a fusee and chain mechanism, making it significantly more interesting than a "regular" movement.

🥂 thank you!

+1, yes the Pour Le Merite line is a subset of the Richard Lange line and incorporates a fusée and chain as described...

 By: holdemchamp1225 : January 4th, 2021-11:13
Most people don't know how different that is as a fusée and chain consists of more movement parts than most Grand Complication pieces such as Tourbillons, Minute Repeaters, etc... For example, this PLM has over 900 component pieces making up the movement ... 

Many thanks kind sir 😉👍🙏
