    Looks perfect on you. And per your other post, I agree--the Up/Down is the closest thing to a sports watch Lange makes.

    Thanks and, as you can probably guess, I am trying to talk myself into the Up/Down!

    The VC you were looking for...
    The photo of the blue dial Quai de L'ile has disappeared from VC's Instagram page. It seems someone jumped the gun and VC is not quite ready to publicize the new model.
    Puristpro has the pic, It's Very Nice.

    That is where I originally saw the watch; it is very nice indeed.

    Wore the Saxonia out today. To my dismay I was very comfortable wearing it. This just intensified my desire for the Up/Down. Damn you Lange, damn you!

    That is just crazy talk!

    Wearing the Saxonia made me once again realize how much I prefer such a style of watch (ironic given this thread's title). So my current thinking; a WG Up/Down (although the RG does look mighty fine and I could be swayed) in about two years and for my "final" watch a RG VC Traditionnelle of some kind assuming they still are 38mm.

    Re: Suggestions: High-End Sport Model Watch For Small Wrists

    I just saw that this thread has been viewed over 10,000 times, sure 9,000+ views are just from me, but still... Thanks to everyone for making me realize that I do not want a high-end sports swatch. Anyway, my GS does that job wonderfully well (and whether GS is high-end, mid-end etc etc really does not bother me).

    I have been thinking about the Lange Annual Calendar; I am not a fan of the cut-off numbers and I have no idea about the legibility of the dial, but it is one mighty fine watch. Of course, I would need quite a bit more in my bank account to splurge on such a watch. I am going to stretch it enough through purchasing the Up/Down, blow away my max. watch price ceiling, and make a mockery of how I could not see it being double the price of the Saxonia. Though if this thread has taught me anything, when it comes to watches everything is in a state of flux.

    @vkalia if your AD has the AC in stock when you pick up the Up/Down, please take many photos of the AC, give your impressions of it, and feel free to purchase the AC also... :)

    I do not need a high-end sports watch; my GS does that job already. If I am going to spend stupid amounts on a watch, I want it to be a gold dress watch. One of course with understated elegance. That is what I like and one that suits me best. In that regard my next watch will be either a VC Traditionnelle or the ALS 1815 Up/Down. The latter is dependent on getting it at a price point I am comfortable with. A potential wildcard is the VC Quai De L'ile in the just released blue dial. While not a gold dress watch it is still a VC and I do like the casual/formal design.

    Feel free to laugh if I end up with a 41mm RO
