I vote the Black. smile.gif Truly goes with everything, and I love the look of a rugged, iconic piece on a femine wrist.

Also, I mean, if she doesn't want the LV I'm sure I can think of other uses...

Thanks B! I've been in suits most days lately so the RO has been gettting a lot of wrist time.

Do you mean the JLC Squadra Hometime? I like the look of it but it's almost 15mm thick (the Lange is a shade under 10mm) and feels very clunky on the wrist.

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!

No, I mean the Master Hometime, part of the Master collection. 40mm in diameter, 11.7mm in thickness.

My issue with the subdials as mentioned, is just a small issue.  If that is the design that you like and you will enjoy it, then that is all that matters.  Ah...price is always a factor.  If price weren't an issue on many items...I'd probably have more watches, and maybe more cars.  

 

As for a watch being worth more than your car...I don't consider that a big deal.  At times I've owned a watches that were worth more than my car.  Unless you are talking a truly collectible car, most cars (even nice ones Lexus, BMW, MBs, etc) depreciate very quickly and can be worth a lot less than a nice watch.  Wishing you luck with whatever you decide about the Lange.

Got it - thanks. Looks nice but not as nice as the Lange. Will try to find one irl.

It's not as nice, but it's also no where near the price ($7-8K US). I prefer the JLC Master Geo to the Master Hometime, but it's a different look so I didn't suggest it. I'm not sure what you what your thought process is, what other watches you have, or how comfortable you are spending a certain amount,  so ignore the following advice if it doesn't apply. If you are just after one watch, and you like the look and functionality of the Lange Dual Time, save and get that one (or maybe a Patek 5134, though I still prefer the Lange). But if the price makes you uncomfortable, or would prohibit you from having a slightly largely collection (if that is something you would want), I would look at something like the JLC Hometime as an alternative.

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 Meistersinger and a 1962 Eternamatic). Then I splurged GBP 4500 on a Radiomir 337 I'd been eyeing for about a year. At the time it felt like a huge step - I couldn't imagine spending that much again any time soon. But the nervousness passed and the baseline was recailbrated. No doubt it will be again.

Hadn't read this in years and came across it today. Still funny and mostly true.
