... reminds me about how each of us has our own idiosyncrasies. It's interesting and amusing to read about these things. It's part of what makes this hobby fun for me. For example, in another recent thread, several people said they wouldn't own a Zeitwerk with an older movement because the minutes disc moves a tiny bit just before it changes ("fractional preloading"). That's a fascinating objection. And for me, I really dislike little things such as (a) the overlapping hour and minute subdials on all the original Grand Lange 1 models, (b) the shape of the padding and the matte finish on Lange's current straps, and most of all (c) the fact that for over 20 years, Lange couldn't figure out how to make a cardboard box lid with vertical seams/corners that were strong enough to withstand normal shipping/handling so that they didn't split apart. I know (most) other people don't care about any of these things, though. I considered starting a thread asking for people to share more of their personal Lange idiosyncrasies, but I feared it could get more negative than fun -- and these days, there's already enough negativity in the world!
