I was thinking almost the exact same things. (Although in my head it was lederhosen and "oom-pah-pah band.") Seems like a collection with a very narrow focus, even within ALS. Pity.
I really like the JLC MUT Moon 39 in black. But if you have several other black dialed watches, then yes, I agree you should consider mixing it up. I really like the VC dress watches, especially the 1955 Historique. It is a true ultrathin, with a gorgeous, JLC-derived movement. Has real horological cachet too.

Spamming the TWAT thread. There's a fine line between puffery and overt commercialism. ...of course, that line is waaay back in the rearview mirror.
