Question on Lumen Moon Phase

Jan 10, 2019,08:00 AM

Hello everyone, I need your help on making a decision. I really like the Lange Lumen moon phase from 2017, limited to 200 pieces. Now I have the opportunity to buy one and wanted to get your opinion on the value of the Lumen compared to a normal Lange 1 moon phase. I don’t have the exact numbers but basically the Lumen is double the price of the same watch but not limited and no special Lume.  Is the Lumen really worth double-especially considering Lange is coming our with multiple special editions at SIHH this year with a MSRP price at about half the price of the Lumen as well?  Thanks for your thoughts and opinions...Jim

After about 1.5 years, I still stare at the lovely dial every time I wear it.

I am one of the lucky ones who owns the Lange 1 Moonphase Lumen. Here are some of my thoughts: (1) If you have not seen one in the flesh before (or any other Lumens), I can assure you that it is definitely much more amazing in real life than in photos. Th...

Really help, thank you. I did see the new Lumen Datograph and thought it was georgous, I couldn’t get the Boutique to sell me one without buying another expensive watch also so I passed on that. In your opinion is the Lumen Moon the most attractive of the... 

I would agree with masy7 comments

that the two most attractive ones are the Phantom and the Moonphase Lumen. Just my opinion.

Superb shot! [nt]

I'm biased because I own one. I wear this watch very often and never, ever tire of it. I did, however, put it on a shark mesh bracelet that most others find revolting. I love it this way because I think "mesh" -- the idea of seeing through a metal "guard"...  

I appreciate your direct enthusiasm!

I do have the chance to get one and why I asked for comments, it’s just a little tough to rectify double the price of one without the Lume but I do see they hold their value (a good thing as mentioned above) . The fact current owners love them is very ni... 

Well worth the premium over the regular production piece if you ask me

Like all other GL1 lumen moonphase owner, I am still deeply in love with mine despite having owned it since late 2016. The dial is mesmerising both under natural lighting and without any lighting. Best lumen together with the zeitwerk phantom. Are you get... 

Your question is "is it worth double a regular Lange One"?

 By: Jay (Eire) : January 10th, 2019-18:11
It's impossible to determine the answer as it's "worth" is very subjective, as it is for all of the watches we buy. For me, it's in no way "worth" the premium over the regular Lange One reference. That's my subjective opinion on the value to me of those c... 

I think I agree Jay

Paying double for what is a gimmick seems senseless, a few ours of Lume is what I get on all my Panerai and roles models. I think your comment makes me pause and re-evaluate, thank you...Jim
