Independents: Thanks for your detailed reply!

I will suspend judgment until trying it on. I am sure there will be a lower priced version (probably in white gold without tourbillon) in due course, so I will certainly have an opportunity to consider it. -Ryan

Independents: In my respectful opinion

The problem with this watch is the case design. I like the dial and the movement (although I prefer the Geneva stripes on the original variant, which are finer IMHO). But the case design does not work. The case appears lopsided on the wrist. The bezel is not well proportioned to the main body of the

Audemars Piguet: Lawyer here

There are three questions that must be distinguished. The first issue is whether, under the terms of the warranty, the warranty is transferable to a subsequent purchaser. The answer to this question can be found by reading the warranty card (including the small print). You will find that many warran

A. Lange & Söhne: Brilliant photos!

This is a surprisingly rare piece - I don’t know anyone who owns it. It is a very attractive watch, although I am not sure that the dial composition “works” as a whole. The tourbillon cut-out is massive and the rest of the dial is quite empty.

What an incredible combination! It’s hard not to feel a little sad at the state of IWC today, by comp

Horological Meandering: IWC 3571 from the early 2000s

It has the same complications as a Patek 5004. Yet it can be bought for the same price as a Ceramic Submariner. This is a seriously under-appreciated piece in today’s market.

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. In addition to the points you made above, the fonts on the dial are unappealing and the lugs are too fussy. Personall

A. Lange & Söhne: I agree

and you're absolutely right that this is an industry-wide problem.

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.
