To re-state the obvious: yes.No. What you do not seem to grasp is that the Lange 1 is not a particularly complicated watch. None of its features are significant complications; power reserve indicators and big dates do not need to add meaningful thickness to a movement. In contrast, automatic rotors and central second hands, which are far more common and less eye-dazzling to newbie watch hobbyists, do.  See above comment.Also, you are missing the argument. The point is...
For sale are two Eames LCW chairs in Santos Palisander. These are official versions produced by Herman Miller. They are in excellent / near mint condition. Please see photos for detail. The retail price for each is $1,468.00. Happy to sell as a pair or individually, though they were made at the same time with matching veneers and would make a great set. Asking $550 for each chair, excluding delivery. We are located in Greenwich Village / NoHo in New York City, if local...
If it doesn't feel right, it doesn't feel right. But I would not visit tailors in Naples (or anywhere) just to window shop. Go with the serious intention to start an order, but don't feel pressured if you don't feel like it will go well.
Come again?No one is getting a "pass" for anything. The 5054's officer case is thicker because it has an added feature, the hinged back. The Lange 1 case does not have a hinged back and cannot be made any thinner. The watch is thicker than it needs to be because of the movement, the design of which was compromised to look "German" and evoke the company's distance history in pocket watches and marine chronometers.This all touches back on a previous point about good design...
5296 is not the watch I'm looking at, but it is a good benchmark. The 5054 you referenced is far less comparable--it has an officer's case, with a hinged back, which adds another 2+ mm to the thickness. Anyway, I provided very specific commentary in my last post regarding the thickness required for the complications in question.I didn't say chatons impact performance one way or another. But they don't decorate anything necessary for the movement (unlike blueing of screws,...
Tank Louis Cartier Extra Flat in rose gold, with Piaget ultra-thin movement. Sold already.
I won't dispute that the Lange 1 has a unique dial design. However, other than the big date, I don't agree its features should add any thickness versus the 5296 benchmark.Sub-seconds, for example, do not require the extra gear train that central seconds do--that actually ought to be a disadvantage for the Patek and an advantage for the Lange 1, not the other way around. Power reserve indicators also do not need to add thickness. Really, the only feature that does is the...
Yeah, definitely not wide enough.Also, would pick a different color.
Loved that particular Tank. Would recommend it any day. Very under the radar and underappreciated.Just wanted something else even more, that's all.Eh. Not sure I can get behind the notion of a business casual or cocktail attire watch.Yeah, but those serve a purpose.
Yes. Patek calls it "fluting" in their literature.
