I am curious, what would be an example of an ALS explanation that would be acceptable?
This is interesting, and I enjoyed reading your car story and your thoughts about that, Thomas!
Personally, I find it helpful to think of Lange as primarily a company that finishes and manufacturers watch movements. To the best of my knowledge, except perhaps in very rare or special circumstances (such as with in-house enameling), they also don't make their own dials, crowns, screws, gaskets, crystals, jewels, fusee and chain mechanisms, buckles, straps, or bracelets. Of course, I could be wrong about those now.
