This is a little silly, so I'm breaking it up into two tiers.

 By: Spangles - Mr. Tabby : February 12th, 2020-18:25
The PP vs the VC: I will go against the grain and pick the VC. It's highly underrated and better finished than the PP. I like the old time looks a little better than the PP, although that is up to one's taste, of course. The ALS vs the LF: I choose the Ze... 

Thank you Spangles

I totally respect your decision and feel the pleasure.

In this particular proposition I think I’ll get off the beaten tracks and chose

 By: Tyo : February 12th, 2020-18:33
The VC My only concern about this watch is the minute hands which I think are too thin ...  

ALS would be my first choice (assuming the size is ok)

 By: jleno : February 12th, 2020-18:40
LF would be a close second

With Zeitwerk size should not deter you. It makes you imposing

The PP 5212/1A

 By: sham1 : February 12th, 2020-18:47
due to the patina of the dial, the dial layout, the lugs, the hand written day of week and most importantly, because I own one!

that is not fair. hahaha have you ordered 5520? [nt]

 By: Gelato Monster : February 13th, 2020-18:50
Thank you Sham1

Not possible

 By: sham1 : February 13th, 2020-22:32
as I would have to sell 75% of my collection to fund one! Have you ordered one?!

i like it too

 By: sham1 : February 13th, 2020-23:21
but probably not enough to buy one. A tad too large for me anyway

Zeitwerk Date all the way!

 By: Lankysudanese : February 12th, 2020-18:53
If you want something unique and impeccably-finished, the Zeitwerk Date is the only one that can provide on both counts. However, keep in mind that it’s a huge watch ...  

Totally Zeitwerk Date is unmistakable. Very distinc and handsome [nt]

 By: Gelato Monster : February 13th, 2020-18:51
Thank you Lankysudanese

I agree it is the most different in this comparison [nt]

 By: Gelato Monster : February 13th, 2020-18:59
Thank you Jay

I get your vibe [nt]

 By: Gelato Monster : February 13th, 2020-18:59
thank you vitalsigns

VC in blue for me! :) [nt]

 By: Horologically_minded : February 12th, 2020-19:43

It is gorgeous. Seems like Tyo also prefer in Bleu

 By: Gelato Monster : February 13th, 2020-19:03
Thank you Horologically_minded

A tough call but..

 By: Onemorewatch : February 12th, 2020-20:53
In 4th place is the LF to be honest I’ve never been a fan of their offerings and the size would be off putting. In 3rd place, as iconic it may be the Lange does nothing for me and I typically lean towards a more traditional analogue style. Furthermore the... 

The VCs are SS too...

 By: Horologically_minded : February 12th, 2020-21:45
But it's tough to choose between two beauties!

Totally agree both are traditional and classic. somewhat similar feel

 By: Gelato Monster : February 13th, 2020-19:05
Thank you Onemorewatch

Zeitwerk Date...

 By: mahesh : February 12th, 2020-21:23
the way date function is integrated, I was impressed by ALS...very original ! Best, Mahesh.,

ALS especially Zeitwerk is very original, not mainstream

 By: Gelato Monster : February 13th, 2020-19:07
Thank you Mahesh

hahaha I totally get your date ache feeling

 By: Gelato Monster : February 13th, 2020-19:14
Thank you vitalsigns

so what is your first nwk00? [nt]

 By: Gelato Monster : February 13th, 2020-19:15
you are buying 3 out of 4? That would be my dream

Lol no...

 By: nwk00 : February 13th, 2020-19:44
I have been collecting for 20years. I think after a certain time I decided to stay away from watches with dates, and sometimes even moonphase. As I rotate everyday I try to minimize my time setting watches. On a side note, this is a big difference between... 

VC it is

 By: Gelato Monster : February 13th, 2020-19:16
Thank you drphileasfogg

Ok, what about that?

 By: amanico : February 12th, 2020-22:43

The vintage as well! [nt]

 By: amanico : February 13th, 2020-09:57

You have a point. [nt]

 By: amanico : February 13th, 2020-23:14

The Meteorite is fair addition to the battle [nt]

 By: Gelato Monster : February 13th, 2020-19:17
you are most welcome to edit my first post and add the meteorite. At the same if you would you could make my LF picture smaller so they are all better comparably viewed May I add JLC as your choice? Are you sure not picking one out of the first 4 over the... 


 By: EinPa : February 13th, 2020-10:40
I’m terms of simplify of function and uncluttered appearance. And if you knew nothing about who made what, my vote goes to Laurent Ferrier. The problem with a question like this is that each watch carries the knowledge of it’s price, collectability and de... 

The problem

 By: mastoc : February 13th, 2020-13:01
"The problem with a question like this is that each watch carries the knowledge of it’s price, collectability and desirability. It’s disingenuous to pretend otherwise. " Yes ! It's the collector's binomial, with some exceptions this for example ...  

Totally agree with you. We are all in those kind of situation all the time

 By: Gelato Monster : February 13th, 2020-19:20
But ultimately I always get whichever I am crazy in love with. or Buy two or three before I realize I am in deep situation. Thank you Mastic

This is why I calll it a battle [nt]

 By: Gelato Monster : February 13th, 2020-19:33
It is like a gladiator ultimate fight with different weapon. PP VC ALS LF 3 4 4 1


 By: Gelato Monster : February 13th, 2020-23:19
PP VC ALS LF 3 5 4 1

I would pick the PP

 By: ChristianDK : February 13th, 2020-22:53
The reason is, I see a calendar watch as an everyday complication. I think PP has struck a very fine balance with this new piece. Casual, modern and original with the weeks display. Very versatile. The styling sings to me.

Today Score

 By: Gelato Monster : February 14th, 2020-22:03
PP VC ALS LF 4 5 4 1
