Playing Dress Up

 By: Jay (Eire) : September 10th, 2022-15:53
Had some excuses to be a little more formal this week (albeit with rolled up shirt sleeves), and so this guy got a spin. 

A difficult watch to capture in photos, you can somewhat see that the case is not red, not yellow and not white.  But I think many would still just think it’s the lighting.  And the dial is flat in this picture, which unfortunately means the fantastic eggshell texture is not seen. 

A simple watch on first glance, but it has some nuance that’s only seen after looking closely. 

To me, one of the most interesting uncomplicated modern Lange (with the caveat being I am neither a Lange collector or close follower / enthusiast so what do I know !). 

Beautiful piece. Honey gold is so very nice.

The HG really appeals to me. It’s the perfect halfway point; it’s modern in a way yellow isn’t, has warmth that white does not have, but doesn’t catch attention like red.

Great way to describe the honey gold color, and I completely agree.

A beautiful piece with a lot of class!

Thank you. Unusually, someone actually commented similarly on it over dinner this week.

 By: Jay (Eire) : September 11th, 2022-01:43

Very class, and beautiful.

Trying to make myself a little more classy Nicolas; not easy, who am I kidding ? 😂

You don't need to. You already and naturally are. ;)

My favorite Lange, I wished I had acquired the 40mm white gold version with blued hands.

I'm actually really sad that I didn't buy my favorite Lange when I had the chance.

Always regrets, but you’re in good company here as I think we all have those watches.

Hey Jay! Looks like we both had honey gold on our mind this week. Nice one!

 By: BigAppleBill : September 10th, 2022-17:27

Hah, yes. Just seeing that now.

 By: Jay (Eire) : September 11th, 2022-01:45
We need to get them side by side. Let’s make that happen in the next few weeks at some point.

So superb this 1815!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : September 10th, 2022-18:04

Simple, and superb. I’m a big fan of the 1815 line more broadly.

 By: Jay (Eire) : September 11th, 2022-01:45

Same here!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : September 11th, 2022-02:41

You know a lot! Great looking ALS!

I love wearing watches like this in a casual setting

 By: aperna : September 10th, 2022-22:16

Yes, me too Tony. This one wears very well in a casual setting; the metal is super versatile. And of course, one needs a causal strap too.

 By: Jay (Eire) : September 11th, 2022-01:46

Very classy!

Cheers Greg.

Eggshell dial is indeed really hard to capture in pics...

 By: CR : September 11th, 2022-00:55
... as are the subtleties of many other Lange dials that vary in different lighting. Really lovely!


 By: Jay (Eire) : September 11th, 2022-01:59
I think I mentioned this here before but it was a fellow member here that first posted a photo where the beauty of the dial was evident to me. Prior to that it had not really registered with me.
In your opinion, what are a few of the other examples of Lange dials which might fit a similar profile. Excluding the high high end hammered dials.
I am a fan of the Little Lange 1, and I was very close on buying a Sincere LE Lange 1 with the guilloche dial several years ago. There is so much out there, most of it even the enthusiasts on here would not know existed. But, I think you do so humor us with maybe one or two picks.

I am really, really enamored with the dials on two recent Little Lange 1 models...

the 182.066 and 182.030 (which looks better on a darker strap). Pic from Deployant.

You picked two beauties there.

 By: Jay (Eire) : September 17th, 2022-01:10
Darker strap for sure.
