Thanks for the useful input. I'd like a dual time zone watch and the Lange is the nicest I've seen. At the end of the day I can afford it (with a bit of saving) and so I suspect I will get it - I don't see the point of getting a No. 2 choice where I'm always be going to be thinking 'if only I'd got the Lange'.My nervousness about price is more of a psychological barrier iykwim. Up until a year or so ago I'd not spent more than GBP 700 on a watch (I've got a Nomos Tetra, a...
Yes, you've got a point about the size of the seconds hand dial. But if I am going to get a dual time zone watch then I cannot find one which I like better than the Lange. As I say, it's just the price that is slowing me down, both the outlay and the prospect of having something on my wrist worth more than my car. I'm sure I'll get over it though!
I'm thinking of getting a Lange & Sohne Saxonia Dualtime, either in due course new or pre-owned (if available):
I love the look and the feel on the wrist, it's a good size for me and seems to be a very elegant way to show a dual time zone. The downside is the cost (£22K retail in London).
They'll definitely be party shoes - worn with something like dark grey velvet trousers and a dark navy peak lapel one button jacket. The shoes are midnight blue verging on black so hopefully won't be too gangsterish.
Just bought a suit length of this via my tailor (Meyer & Mortimer):
Horribly expensive but (a) can't find a heavyweight blue flannel that touches it and (b) price is due to go up on 1 April. Interestingly, Fox didn't give the tailor a discount.
I'll have it made into a DB suit over the late summer ready for late autumn.
