    Let's take a break from the homage talk.

    ...and look at some terrible pictures!

    Dad just got this in. He was looking for a simple three hander in rose gold, which surprised me because, nine out of 10 times, he favors white gold or platinum. His collection goes in one of two ways: refreshingly simple or complicated and crazy. Needless to say, I prefer elegant watches.

    Like other watches of this caliber, operation is extremely buttery--smooth, effortless winding--and the L041.2 movement emits a solid clank. I tend to gravitate toward vintage pieces and love hearing a strong, 18,000 bph tick while wearing my watch. This piece obviously isn't as slow, but it sounds great. It's also very heavy and seems to weigh more than my PP pocket watch. But I'll need to hold them together to verify that.

    Thanks for looking. I had to share my excitement with someone who actually cares.

    I introduced it to a friend who once spent an extended period of time in Germany.

    Oboy, I'm with you on the intermission IOL, and damn if it's not more interesting than the event we're taking a break from ! Outstandingly gorgeous. Your Dad has impeccable taste from the pieces you've shared, never mind that it just happens to jive with my aesthetic likes. I'd think any/all of his stash qualifies as heirloom status, thx for showing!

    Whoa. Absolutely stunning. I actually, softly, said "wow", out loud. Which prompted my wife, who's busily studying Contracts to look up and ask what, in particular, I was saying 'Wow' about.

    She said I should get one.

    Until I mentioned that it probably costs more than a semester of law school….

    I'm not usually a fan of gold watches, but I'll echo the sentiment of Wow. So gorgeous.

    You can hardly fault a Lange..other than the high entry price.

    Something about brown/tan strap with gold watch that I really love..it's just right for some reason.

    sidenote about the homage thing: it's a never ending story, at the end of the day buy whatever makes you happy :)

    I would love NOT to like ALS because it's so expensive... but you're not helping, are you?
