Stunning watch! Lange are particularly special watches. Particularly in love with Lagmatik Perpetual in Platinum.

Love the cushion shaped case. Its great seeing more non-round watches on the market.

Now I'm thinking about trading my 312 + cash or 312 + Tudor Pelagos for a 572 in steel..... decisions, decisions. I still want the FPJ Chronometre Bleu too..... This thread is so dangerous

Keep us posted! I'm dying to see the 572 in the metal. I've tried on the smaller 42mm 512 and 337 in the past, and was impressed. My main concern, from a personal stand point, is that with my narrower (6.75") wrists, the 572 might end up wearing me. The 512/337 fit perfectly.

I have a similar wrist size and I found the 572's size to be just right, probably owing to the curved caseback. It was very comfortable and light on the wrist, compared to my 312. Aesthetically I like the 512 as well, but find the 572 more balanced.

Here are some more pics of the Lange:

Very nice!

Sadly the 18ct gold GRAFF watch with Chopard movement turned out to be faulty- the seller won't commuicate, and although they're being contacted by the European Consumer Centre they're unlikely to replace the watch, as the nearest equivalent is £143,000.

I own 7 watches, 4 I inherited from my aunt but I'm allergic to them, a steel and gold Citizen which I'm also allergic to, ditto with the £1,000 Technomarine chronograph watch my parents bought me for my 40th birthday..

Next year I'll have to save up for my Grail Watch, which I've requested a price for, but will be lots of ££££, meaning I cant upgrade my yellow diamond ring...

Does it use a quartz movement? If so then it shouldn't be that expensive or difficult to replace the movement.
