Nuke, you're very kind. Thanks to you all for the education, and probably ruining my life. Anyway, I'm sure I will say something stupid soon. Perhaps below:
GO Senator Perpetual is certainly one I would like a lot more, just because it looks like it was designed to be what it is. That MontBlanc just screams of a small movement lost in a fashionably big case, with those big sticks as incongruous padding.
As for the Calatrava, it's just a lot of money for something very simple. Then again, a platinum Richard Lange costs that, and is simple too....but I'd love it.
No problem! Thanks for your contributions!
And yes, the GO Senator Perp is quite a lovely watch. I never really appreciated it until we all discussed it a while ago. And you know, the Montblanc looks like it is in a fashionably big case, but it actually clocks in at 39mm x 10mm. Darn near a perfect size in my opinion.
I am curious what the movement is. Perp Cals do not require that much in the way of space. But it looks like that movement was designed for a watch in the 34-36mm range? I am curious nonetheless.
And in regards to the RL--I put the platinum RL ahead of the RG 5227. The RL has a MUCH more interesting movement, to say the least. And platinum is awesome possum.
