I actually do not own any Lange! While I do respect them a lot and I’ve been following them for years, I just can‘t find a Lange that‘s making me really want to own it.
I‘ve tried on at least a dozen over the last 6-7 years, but I never felt like pulling the trigger. For me, they all (well, except for the Zeitwerk, the new Odysseus and some high end pieces) look like variations of the same. That doesn’t make it easier to find „my Lange“. The watches that came closest to being bought were the Grand Lange 1 Moonphase Platinum(because of case and dial) and the Richard Lange Jumping Seconds (because of case and movement).

Enjoy your nice pieces. Like the new strap. PS about Lange. For me personally it was the watch the have, after I've been away from watch collecting for a period of more than 10 years. The first watch I bought in 2019 after that long 10 years was... a Lang...
The moon phase is nice, but I much prefer the “base” Lange 1 that just somehow feels a bit more pure, if you get what I mean.
Lange makes beautiful watches to a stupidly high level of execution, but they tend to look very serious and so understated that they almost need to be "jazzed up" a bit. You've managed it with this combination, withot going overboard. I'd be very happy wi...
