Shouldn't these two threads be merged, anyway?

Yes, it was just that I was not getting any replies on this forum before, so I posted it in the clothing forum, thinking perhaps this was the wrong one.

Aha. Well, 33 mm is hardly considered a "˜mans' watch size nowadays...compared to say 1926.

Or even 1966 when such a size was still accepted.

Lange is a terrific option. You might also consider Roger Dubuis.

Somehow I fail to see how a man with a $100,000 watch collection is wary of spending 2-3 hundred dollars on a quality strap...

I know Panarei owners with 100+ straps...

I think I'm going to go for the A. Lang & Sohe 1815 in manual.

Which Dubuis model do you suggest?

The ones from 1997, 1998, 1999; anything after that is for the most part mass market, popular culture designed drivel.

Do you think the A. Lang & Sohe is the best option?

Unless you find a design from Patek, VC or AP that you like more, yes.

If you like the Lange 1815 you should also consider a Patek 3919, my personal favorite for a simple and elegant dress watch. Another consideration would be a Jaeger Reverso Classic.

I have a Cartier Tank, which is similar to the Reverso, and I have a Calatrava (5119 G), so both of those are similar to watches I already have. Both with black straps.

Very nice selections. Of course if you really want to have something different, you could also consider a Corum Golden Bridge, but I think those only come with black staps so you'd still have to change straps.

I think if you don't have a Lange, the 1815 would be a classic addition to your collection. It's my favorite Lange until you start getting into the high five digit range.

I saw an article in the FT about the Golden Bridge when it came out; and I tried, straight away, to try and get one; unfortunately wherever I tried was sold out, and I think this is still the case.

Yes, even after seeing other recommendations, the 1815 is still top of my list; all's left is to find the place which gives me the best discount, and find a friend or relative who is visiting the UK soon so I can claim the VAT back
