On the other hand, it really doesn't jump out at you.Originally Posted by Dino944
Not really a fan of the red 12 either. I know its a throw back to early wrist watches and pocket watches, making it easier to determine the dial's orientation, before the 12 position became standardized for most watches (90 degrees counter clockwise from the winding crown). But on modern pieces, IMHO it just comes off as gimmicky.

Horses for courses. I love the subtlety of it. Strangely enough, I don't normally like Romans much, but the cleanness and precision of this in person is just delicious.
As for that special edition, not my bag either. The (Moscow, boutique) special edition of the aforementioned Langematik Perpetual was pretty sexy though:post #47674 of 4831212/21/15 at 6:32ampost #47675 of 4831212/21/15 at 6:50ampost #47676 of 4831212/21/15 at 7:17ampost #47677 of 4831212/21/15 at 12:30pmI'm not a big Lange fan, but if that theoretical "someone" were to gift me with the choice of any one of their pieces .....then I guess I'd have to go Zeitwerk Minute Repeater.
I think it's platinum only.
But what the hell. Since I'm just spit-ballin' here.post #47678 of 4831212/21/15 at 12:37pmpost #47679 of 4831212/22/15 at 2:44pmFor those of you who swap out your own straps, what tool do you use? I suppose the Bergeon is the most well-known, but which one? The 6111 or 6767? I've read differing reviews on them and not sure which tool to go with.
I also came across the FB-504 from Ofrei:
The S&H is a bit excessive, though (half the cost of the tool).post #47680 of 4831212/22/15 at 3:39pmQuote:Originally Posted by dan'l
