A. Lange & Söhne: I agree with you ZSHSZ

I still do own 5-6 Langes, one from each family, but I have let go of a couple along the way, including the OG PLM tourbillon. I just do not think Lange is as good as everyone, especially some bloggers made them out to be. They are not as accurate, quality control is not perfect either. Once receive

Patek Philippe: Way more than 150 pieces

I do not agree, I think perhaps to produce a black enamel dial would take 1-2 weeks max per dial per artisan. I reckon 5370's true total output to be around 1000 pieces. The US alone receives upwards of 100-200 spilt second grande comps a year (they are checked and inspected by Henri Stern agency be

A. Lange & Söhne: Really? Patek Philippe is arguable the best, and they pretty much only run sales through ADs worldwide.

Although most popular sports and grand complication models do not need discounts to sell, you would have found that almost all other models could have been purchased from AD directly with slight discount even during the height of the nautilus hype. I do not know where the Lange executive got the ide

A. Lange & Söhne: Well worth the premium over the regular production piece if you ask me

Like all other GL1 lumen moonphase owner, I am still deeply in love with mine despite having owned it since late 2016. The dial is mesmerising both under natural lighting and without any lighting. Best lumen together with the zeitwerk phantom. Are you getting an offer for a used piece or new piece?

Patek Philippe: Here you go

Pardon the bad photo, hard to get 3 watches in one shot. But case in point, on the 5711 and 5170, the tiffany stamps make the dial more balanced. But in my opinion, the tiffany stamp on the 5164 makes it abit too crowded on top. Best, masy

Patek Philippe: If we set aside the crazy prices on Tiffany patek sports

I like the tiffany and co stamped above 6 oclock for 5711, I find that it balances the emptiness of the bottom dial.

A. Lange & Söhne: Wow!

Amazing 1815 collection, my favorite is the honey gold until I saw that last handwerkskunst alike dial. Which edition is that? I have never seen it before, the only 1815 with handwerkskunst was the 1815 tourbillon.

Patek Philippe: From an early-mid 20 watch enthusiast

Dear all, I have been mostly a lurker on this forum, one that religiously checks in everyday for new posts. I am indefinitely grateful for the exposure this forum has given me and taught me about all types of watches. From Bill for the vintage rolexes to amanico for jlc to foreversta for the indepen

Patek Philippe: You can find 5164a at or below retail if you look around. They are uncommon but certainly not rare watches :)

I personally do like the 5167R. I find it classy with a twist, definitely the 5167R over 5167A for me. And I personally prefer the 5167 watches co-branded with tiff&co. That one additional line on the bottom does the magic and make the dial side less plain imo and it also retains value really well.

Horological Meandering: Witty and charming!

Best satire I have seen or read in awhile ( caricatures about the watch industry are plentiful on instagram though some are a tad too crass in my opinion ). 2 & 6 sing to me particularly. Powerful caveats that should be heeded by all collectors, experienced or not alike. Thank you.
