I think it is a bit of an optical illusion as actually the Lange is thinner. But only slightly 10.8 vs 10.9. The movement, though, if the Patek is 5.35 vs the Lange 6.1. however cased the Lange is slightly thinner. www.hodinkee.com
Great opportunity to hear insight from F.P. Journe. It is so rare to have a brand that is so pure in expressing one man's vision for what a wristwatch should be. It is made all the more special when that man has such technical mastery and the drive to innovate and push forward with new ideas. In my
I wish more manufacturers would put the power reserve in back. Aesthetically it leaves the dial less cluttered. Further, you should have the watch off when you wind anyway. And given power reserve length, the time you need to make a decision on whether to wind or not is when to you are either puttin
Had the opportunity to see the lange moonphase with day night indicator in the flesh. The transition from night to day is quite nicely done. It really does look like an emerging blue sky. Really clever add on an iconic watch.
I think it is quite an interesting piece in that it has some relatively significant attributes: 1. Patek Regulator, that is rare. 2. Unique dial style and finish, seems rare compared to the rest of the line-up. 3. Special micro-rotor movement for just this watch. Rather than taking the other "base"
Would be fun to try on an inexpensive movement...won't cost you much if you screw it up (or several of them up). Would be interesting to know what tools and materials would be required to do the job. Seems like most of the result comes from the elbow grease---but still would not know where to start
Really fantastic piece. thin right diameter for the lange case zero reset same movement minus two parts from the perpetual big date super clear and beautiful dial in person Lange finishing not obstructed by micro rotor Love the WG version in particular with the blued hands
Saw a few Asaoka pieces in the flesh. Not only is the execution fantastic but from a watchmaking point of view, IMHO, he is truly bringing something to the table as a watchmaker/artist. Namely, his watches are an embodiment of his vision of what a watch should be down to the last part. If you like h
