Rolex: Not sure about in Europe, but in the US I believe wait time for the 126660 JC is relatively short...

Maybe a few months. I understand this isn't a popular watch compared to the other sports models. That makes sense, given the unusually large size, the higher price point, and fact that it's not as historic/iconic/well-known as a Sub or a Sea-Dweller. I continue to be very surprised at how much I lik

Rolex: Attraction of 126660 JC vs. 116660 black dial

My attraction to the 126660 JC was all about the blue/black dial color -- specifically that it (a) is beautiful dial (b) would add variety to my collection. Every other Rolex I own has a black dial. I had a 116660 for 12 years and thought it was perfectly comfortable on my wrist, the slightly narrow

Rolex: With Rolex we have similar tastes, NIco.

The only vintage Rolex models that interested me enough to purchase were the 1665 DRSD, 1680 Red Sub, and 1675 GMT. And the only modern model is a 126660 JC, which I recently got while selling the older 116660 (purchased in 2008). I LOVE the 126660 and have been wearing it almost every day for the p

A. Lange & Söhne: Kaufmann!...

So this was wayyy back 20 years ago. This was my first Lange. I got it from a European grey dealer (at a time when there were only 2 US ADs), and I said I needed a custom-length short strap with it. Kaufmann had been Lange's official strap supplier just before that time, and the dealer ordered the s

A. Lange & Söhne: 38.5mm case -- standard Lange 1 size. But Lange made...

... other guilloche dial Lange 1 models in the smaller 36mm size. If you see a protruding rectangular date corrector pusher at 10 o'clock, then it's 38.5mm. If the pusher is not visible from the top of the watch (because it's recessed), then it's the smaller 36mm case.

A. Lange & Söhne: Yes, the first photo is misleadingly light. It's darker.

This is the same strap on a different (yellow gold) watch but taken in less sunlight.

A. Lange & Söhne: Thanks very much and I hope all is well! I appreciate the clarification that it's not a numbered LE.

Yes, I have the WG version, 110.030. It was my first Lange. That reference was initially offered exclusively by Sincere for about a year and was then offered more widely through other Lange ADs. These guilloche versions were not initially called "Soiree." "Soiree" was used only to describe the 110.0
