I didn’t have an “epiphany” - it was a discussion and I reached my own conclusions which is so openly shared.
I am the one who initiated it because I believe in transparency and I chose to chronicle my state of mind at every juncture, my critique for the brand in that they need to be open about this still stands. I just don't want anyone, including myself, to get carried away with pitchforks and torches when almost everyone leaves their hands unpolished while offering worse movement finishing and minuscule outdated movements.
After researching this topic and getting some explanation from Lange I have posted their answers and stated that I accept their explanation - if you or anyone chooses not to accept it, that's absolutely ok. This doesn't mean they shouldn't explain these things better in the future, they absolutely should and I know they will. so problem solved in my books.
Also, in all my posts I never said there was a confusion regarding their statement that all parts of the movement is finished- that statement is very clear cut and cannot be confused with other parts of the watch. It was about the doubts not finishing the underside of the hands would raise. It did raise doubts in my mind and it did make me feel betrayed, an emotion that I dealt with by seeking more info from Lange and fellow collectors.
