Some nice watches there, Italian.

I think Lange makes the nicest watches today. I just wish I didn't see mid-century ones with swastikas engraved on the back from time to time

Really?? I suppose I'm not entirely shocked that these existed, but I'm disappointed that they STILL exist.

I can respect that, I have a Diver watch also with a Rolex Sub and there are times when I find it a bit of a waste given that I don't dive...I loved the cream/blue of the Omega but always toy with departing from the Rolex and the Omega for one Rolex or nicer Omega...who knows what the future holds.

Unfortunately, this model didn't fit so well on my wrist, so I sold it off after a year to fund another purchase. Still, it's one of my all-time favorites (to admire, not to wear).

Medtech: What did not fit with this watch? Too small...big?

Actually, the dial size at 39mm was pretty much perfect for me. What did it were the lugs, which didn't sufficiently angle nor curve downwards to allow the watch to sit neatly on my wrist. At certain angles it seemed that the watch was floating. A relatively minor point, really, but when I tried on the Lange 1 for the first time the issue completely disappeared, so the Breguet wasn't seeing any wrist time. I've also come to enjoy the tactile, daily ritual of the manual wind - so my small collection has been trending in this direction. The Breguet was an automatic.

Indeed, there is one on Ebay right now. (In fact, I think there is one earlier in this thread.)

The fact that Walter Lange fought for Hitler is also disheartening. I know he was conscripted, but still....he was a Nazi.

I love Langes and truly think they are the best watches made today. I am just not sure I can bring myself to buy one.

does this mean that you're not a fan of: hugo boss; adidas; puma; mercedes; VW; audi; bayer; siemens; and coca cola, amongst others?
