    Opinions: Lange's Most Attractive Quality

    I though it might be fun to pose a broader question to the forum, one which any enthusiast can answer and which doesn't relate to any specific Lange watch.

    Based upon your love of watches, what is Lange's single most attractive quality to you? You can choose only one thing about the company or its product that excites you or that you admire.

    For me, I am most impressed by Lange's exquisite attention to the finest of details. This can be in the design of the movement or of the dial, or of the high level of finishing each watch receives regardless of complication or price point. I have great respect for a company which so carefully considers every decision and is so attentive to even the slightest detail.

    I think the only answer, or the most popular answer, is their perfectionist culture. Their finishing imo is the best even compared to patek. Its like a form of art. They are the only watchmaker afaik that has second reset feature when setting the time. That shows how perfectionist, and their attention to detail. Isn't it why we wis buy mechanical watches? Seeking a symbol of craftmanship, one that can satisfy our symbol of perfection.

    I agree with this. I appreciate Lange's consistent attention to detail that is present throughout all aspects of the timepiece -- from the movement finishing to the dial layout to the font for the "&" symbol. I also tend to like their overall aesthetic that we see in many models (Lange 1, 1815, Zeitwerk, Datograph, etc.).

    Yes. Who else assembles every movement to make sure everything works perfectly, then disassembles, finishes all the components (within an inch of their lives), then re-assembles the movement? I've had three Langes, and just picking one up makes you feel the dedication that goes into them.

    impeccable craftsmanship. They don't need so called "celebrity ambassadors" to peddle their timepieces.

    Personally, I love the finishing on the sides of the case. The matte effect on what appears to be an insert surrounding many of their cases is stunning, understated and purely Lange. I love it! Name:  A-Lange-Sohne-Saxonia-Thin-aBlogtoWatch-1.jpg
