    Need help deciding which A.Lange and Sohn to buy

    Hello and nice to meet all of you here. I have been a long time lurker in this forum and now decide to create an account and start it off with this topic.

    English is not my first language so i do apologize if there are errors and inconsistancy in my writing.

    I am looking forward to purchase A.Lange Lange 1 moonphase and have been to my local AD for a number of times to try it on my wrsit. They look fantastic on my 6.5 inch wrist and my preference right now is the white gold with black dial.

    I would like to ask for opinion regarding Lange 1 practicality as an everyday watch. Currently i only had Audemars 15202 extra thin for office day and special events and Seiko for when i do hands on activities.

    This Lange 1 moonohase will be something i would like to wear daily or on casual gathering or on a rotation with my AP.

    So for more casual and everyday wear, do you think lange 1 moonphase black dial can pull it off or should i go with pink gold/white dial for more casual vibe. I also have a feeling that with dark dial of lange 1 white gold, it would give off the same vibe as dark blue dial from my AP.

    Thank you for reading and nice to neet you all again 🙂

    Hey Nachapon, welcome to the forum. I'm definitely not an expert on Lange, but from you description, the Lange 1 in white gold and a black face would be the watch that can be easily dressed up or down. The Lange 1 is an entirely different watch than the AP and from my novice opinion I don't think they would give off the same vibe. Entirely up to you of course.

    Personally, I prefer the look of the pink gold and the white dial. I don't think there's a wrong choice here, though!

    The moonphase on the white gold / black dial is one of my favorite things in the entire universe of watchstuff.

    No brainer to go with it.

    I had a Lange 1 for about a year with the black face in platinum (the "Darth") and I had a hard time dressing it down. I am usually in a business casual/tropical climate style of dress, and I found it to be a difficult watch to wear. I rarely wear black, and the black strap just made it look too dressy. For me I think the white face/gold case would have been a better choice, as it looks less formal, and a tad bigger due to the lighter face.

    I'd go for a lighter dial for everyday wear. The new anniversary pieces with blue accents would be perfect.
