Based on the pic posted? Really?
I mean come on. Maybe in person but no way you could telling me the watch looks special based on that pic especially at a glance.
Again I admit the A Lange is far more superior in every way and 9.9 times out of 10 I'll take the A Lange (though I believe Portofino cost about 1/6th of the price of Lange?) but that pic is a terrible representation of the watch.
The Lange studio pics look "plasticky" compared to real-life photos. I suppose my impression of the new 38.5mm Dual Time came from seeing the older model in the metal, where it looked much more like this:
I suppose I do see the design similarities with the Portofino, though the Patek Dual Time or JLC Master Hometime were what first came to mind because of the dial layout.
