Hands Finishing.

 By: Thewindingstem : March 23rd, 2020-21:39
Hello! I hope everyone with their families and friends are safe and staying home to combat this wretched virus! As I am home full time now, I took this opportunity to take more photos of my watches to improve my skills and get to know them more intimately...  

At that level of magnification, I don't think a little bit of imperfection is unexpected.

The applied indices look very nice and crisp as well.

Oh I see what you mean now...

The reflection shows that the underside is rough...very interesting catch!

I don't necessarily think it should be finished- its just an interesting thing to discover!

Ever since I’ve binged on the watchfinder videos on YouTube, I’ve become aware of this issue with some brands.

Honestly, I hold Lange to better standards (than this). Not that it’s of any impact on the watch’s functionality. Do share more close-ups of your watch collection. That’ll help cheer us through these tough times

I was also going to refer to watchfinder YT videos

Yes I do see it with many brands, including Patek Philippe. For example 09:54 on . But I honestly see it too often in his videos. I would also agree that I would expect better from the likes of PP and ALS.

will do!

im not sure if this is a standard and it certainly doesn't bother me- im more interested in the movement being fully finished with no shortcuts, which I was assured is!

Double reflection?

Perhaps the dial guilloché is being reflected on the mirror-polished underside of the minute hand, and that's what's visible on the XII index?

Very plausible explanation. [nt]

I second that explanation [nt]

I enjoy your macro pictures..

 By: greatpa : March 24th, 2020-02:23
Both here on instagram! Someone with a Lange moonphase compilation should be able to see the back side refelction of the hand(s) more clearly on the highly polished moon. ;-) This one says hi. ...  

Thank you, friend!

 By: Thewindingstem : March 26th, 2020-00:37
whenever I look at a Lange 1 my heart skips a beat even when I have mine on my wrist! love the straps too!

Bottom side

 By: Jurry : March 24th, 2020-07:10
You mean the bottom side of the hands are not polished? That’s a little bit like: “he the backside of the moon doesn’t look neat” OMG I would file a claim against them immediately.

Cabin fever? [nt]

I can't say I've seen the back of the hands before...

I've been to the Lange factory three times. But I can't say I've seen the back of the hands before.
