Mines the black dial white gold. Saxonia is pretty much my only option right now, brand and budget wise. The blue lancelet hands of the 1815 are indeed very seductive but the Arabic numbers killed it for me. Kinda removes the classiness of a dress watch. I still prefer roman or strips like the Calatrava/patrimony/saxonia if u know what I mean.
As for "There are plenty around used for about the same price", I live in a small country and the preown market is not really huge. I also prefer to try the watch physically that's why buying from the web is a nono. I'm from Singapore by the way. Thanks for your input mimo!
Yeah, the numbers you either like or don't - it's very much a German "thing" with the 1920-30s "deck watches" and so forth. But if you don't want that distinctive house style, maybe look further afield than Lange? You mentioned Calatrava, Patrimony, how about a Jules Audemars, a Breguet, even a Moser? Anyway, the Saxonia's beautiful - and maybe for that price it's just what you need. :)
As for trying stuff on, is it difficult to import things for tax reasons? There's no harm in trying stuff on in shops and then working out where the deal is. But it seems you've already done that with the Saxonia. Me too - it's a beauty.
Nothing to be jealous about buddy, mine are all entry level watches
For sure. But please note that the "humblebrag" is something to be avoided.
My eyes...MY EYES!
