A. Lange & Söhne: Thankfully

You very kindly posted the specification for your straps a while ago that I bookmarked. I just need to do it. And yes, it's one of my favorites that often gets worn "just because". Cheers!

A. Lange & Söhne: Agree

Though I would be drawn to the "cousin" 1815 in wg with black dial.

Officine Panerai: Pity

It's a shame you feel you had poor treatment, but hand assembled mechanical watches sometimes do fail. And that can be all the way up to the most expensive watches you can imagine. Panerai seem to have a sold a reasonably large number of PAM111's to happy customers without issue. The watch is highly

You may find there are still a few in the system looking for a good home.

Patek Philippe: Only one answer

If you travel then the 5164 is the one that's worth having. The 5130 is a great phone watch, but pretty much useless for travel if you cross timezones.

Audemars Piguet: Why do you want it?

The 15300 is a great watch. The 26120 is a nice complication but as a travel watch it's really not that useful. If you travel a lot look at something like a Rolex GMTII. I would stick with the 15300.

Patek Philippe: Tough call

Even though I have a 5712G I would suggest getting a 5712/1a for its versatility. I also like the 3/4 rotor movement in the 5712, and prefer the dial to the 5726.

Officine Panerai: You missed the point

He was talking about European luxury brand buyers in general - and he could have included Americans in that bucket also. He wasn't specifically referring to Panerai owners. And if in general Chinese luxury buyers are being more diligent about the brands and products they buy, then good for them. It
