Did you get that, roger? It is a great watch and, I think, underrated. The day counter is a deal-killer for me, but I understand that others don't feel that way.

No doubt.  For me the cyclops on most Rolex is a deal killer but they still sell bazillions of them.

Here's the original vintage piece:

 

 

 

Gorgeous but the date RUINS it.  Ugh.  Thanks, TWAT for making me realize things like this.

I thought it was just as unnecessary a detail here, and it didn't stop me:

Is that the 44mm version with calibre 9300 movement? Sweet. I quite like the '57 model, in a slightly more diminutive case size (41 or 42 mm I believe?). For my puny 6.75" wrists, 44mm felt too big.

Yes. Truth be told, the watch would be perfect at 42mm.

Beautiful. The Up/Down is one of my favourite Langes!

I'm sure it has great wrist presence, and if it's a good fit/proportionate to your wrist size, then who's to judge? Does it feel balanced with respect to case height and size? When I bought my Planet Ocean, I ended up picking the older calibre 2500 version because the newer 8500 watch felt a that little bit thicker, and didn't feel quite as good on my wrist...

So beautiful it deserves to be the only thing on his wrist.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Here's a little reunion photo. Dad (top), me (middle), brother (bottom). I actually purchased both of these Daytonas in 2006--the 116520 as a gift for my dad, and the 16520 for myself, which I later gifted to my brother. The 16520 just came back from a service and looks mintier than the day I got it.

Hahaha. But yeah, it's a pet peeve for me, especially with something like a Lange.
