    If it doesn’t speak to you (which seems like it) - then sell it.

    In the grand scheme of things life is way too short to not absolutely love what's on your wrist. Our days and memories are numbered so don't let you head takeover and talk some crazy non sense to your heart.

    Save up and if within your means do get what you have always desired. And wear it in good health!

    I agree, I don't think there is a perfect watch. I am not a flipper but over the years have sold maybe 4-6 watches (from a healthy collection) and I would say that I have had regrets for 3 of them and in fact almost considered repurchasing one or two. So make sure about your decision if you do decide to change. A week may not be long enough to know.

    You were spoiled by grand seiko and the hulk. nothing comes even close to hulk in terms of energy and beauty. especially not german watches ... they are perfect but they dont have the charm of some pateks and rolexes. but i cant believe you like the 1815 chrono more than the old one? i mean whats up with the pulsations ...

    I’m going to give it at least a month. It’ll take me some time to find the funds to trade up anyway!

    Oh I think the pulsations are cool, and maybe even useful if you want to know your heart rate.

    I know what you mean about the Hulk- it has a lot of energy, and I think it contrasts well against the stealthy Langes.

    Side note- I don’t understand why the Lange1 “stealth” has it’s name. I’m not sure silver/grey is all that “stealthy”!

    The "Stealth" name came from the fact that this model was the only white metal Lange (other than the Tourbillon Pour Le Merite) that existed when the modern-day Lange company relaunched in 1994. All the other Lange models were yellow gold. It was called "Stealth" because platinum isn't as blingy/flashy as yellow gold -- it could pass as steel -- so the platinum "Stealth" attracted less attention from everyone except those few people on the planet who might recognize it for what it really is. Here's the first Lange price list, from 1994:

    This is amazing, thanks for sharing. Can’t believe the prices are in Deutschmarks!

    A month is a good idea, maybe even longer to see if you will connect with the watch long term. Your resale value is going to remain stable for more than a few months (provided you don't drop the watch lol), so I don't see any downside in keeping it for longer, particularly since you did a lot DD when hunting for it.
