Horological Meandering: Quality, no question.

While I'm currently a little more on the quantity side of things, I'm working slowly towards a transformation to quality along. In a perfect world, I'm a three watch person with one dress watch, one tool watch, and one wildcard/changing watch.

Girard Perregaux: Agreed, I like it but I struggle to spend $14,300 on it.

Horological Meandering: A. Lange & Sohne

I'll put in a vote for my favorite German watch brand of A. Lange & Sohne. While I sadly don't own one myself yet (one day!), they've always spoken to me on a different level from almost every other brand. I absolutely adore MB&F, Gronefeld, DeBethune etc., but Lange consistently manages to

Automotive: In many ways yes...

I think the beauty of the 718 Cayman/Boxster is that it's become more of a purist sports car at this point than the 911.

Horological Meandering: That's a little unpleasant, no question.

I'm not sure I would have written the store manager about a single emoji text response, but I understand your frustration and It certainly wasn't a thoughtful response by the AD. We're at a moment in the market where salesmen have become somewhat disconnected from reality, and many forget that the m

A. Lange & Söhne: Thank you

I've seen the non moonphase version as well, but I was sure I had seen a gray dial moonphase version as well, but honestly I've never been able to find it again or any info online, so I suspect my memory may be playing tricks on me. Thanks all!
