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!

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.
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... :)
