Thank you. Me too!
Well it's a bespoke dial so it's going to be an enamel painting of my beloved dog. I'm doing another one with a traditional Chinese painting with calligraphy.
Meh. The "subdials" on the other model are plastic - total reject as far as I'm concerned. Also she has no buttocks, is too thin, doesn't appear to have a top lip, and bears a disturbing resemblance to Tom Cruise. Frankly, Der Vaterland can do better.
And does. There's no silicon in a Lange. You can quote me on that. :)
You know, I do get your point. The "blank space" versus "busyness" aesthetic certainly represents a trade-off. Again, this is such a personal preference and I border on nitpicky. I think anyone would be fortunate to have either a 3940 or a 5140.
Excellent point here about serviceability and availability of parts. I fully intend to keep my PPs alive for well past my own lifetime, so I want to stack the cards in favor of my kids being able to have them serviced in the future.
