Of those 2, I'd go with the Lange no question! Even if the finish were comparable, the VC looks like a small movement from an earlier case, stuffed into a larger more modern case. I hate when companies do that. The Lange movement is perfectly suited for its case.

One quick note. VC's Historique Ultra Fine 1955 is drastically more expensive than the Patrimony...hence in its price range I might consider other options from both VC and Lange.

What about Dornblueth Quintus v Lange Saxonia in terms of case and movement finishing?
If the finish is your criteria personally, I'd stick with Lange. But do the research try them on in person and then make a decision.
