A. Lange & Söhne: Lange is in a very bad state

As a result of the coronavirus, sales will fall off a cliff. It’s going to be truly terrible - there will be weeks and months where Lange makes literally no sales. The critical stage could continue for up to a year. The ensuing recession will last longer than that. There is a very significant risk t

Independents: I adore the dial.

The colour palette is sublime. But the movement finishing looks pretty rough, especially near the jewels/sinks. Perhaps it’s a prototype which will be finished properly now that the auction is done?

Patek Philippe: An excellent analysis.

This watch one of the very best movements in the business. Indeed, I believe it is the most beautiful split-seconds calibre ever manufactured. However, the dial and case are lacking.

A. Lange & Söhne: The fourth law of thermodynamics

states that, for every possible permutation of dial colour and case metal, Richemont will make it! So I have no doubt we will see this before long.
