A Lange is a hell of a chunk of cash though. I think that I would be happy with a Pano, and not yearn for a Lange if I had one.

For emotional purchases like watches, never settle.

My Mother used to say, "sometimes the best is the cheapest in the end."

Yes, the Lange 1 is a lot of money! It's unique, it's top quality, its exclusive, and to many it's the best.

I have a friend who often buys less expensive alternatives to what he truly wants, even though if he saved up or stuck with the idea of quality over quantity, he could get what he really wants. Anyway, he has a pattern of buying the less expensive alternative, liking it, eventually being dissatisfied, then selling it or trading it toward the piece he really wanted from the beginning. By the time you figure in the depreciation and any price increases that occurred between the time he bought the substitute and what he really wanted...it would have been cheaper just to buy what he really wanted. He just can't see or get out of that behavioral pattern.

Yes, the Pano is a lot less than a Lange, but I could never be satisfied with a Pano. I'd always feel like I was with the Lange 1's ugly sister.

Missed this earlier. Very nice. My next next watch will probably be this watch, probably in PG.

However once they moved her department to another part of the building, magnetization was no longer an issue. I think if you wore a more modern watch you may have fewer issues even if its not specifically anti-magnetic. Short of the MRI department issue, ...phones, computers, etc have never affected any of our watches, none of which are specifically anti-magnetic.

I work close to an MRI machine and haven't had a problem.

Different watches and your overall proximity could have an effect on whether a watch gets magnetized. My wife had to have her watch demagnetized twice when her department was near the MRI department. Its been 7 years since her department moved to a different part of the hospital and her watch hasn't gotten magnetized since the move.

heh, i did the same thing. no pics, but i tried on the Skyfall Planet Ocean at the Omega boutique. i hated the last 007 edition, but this one has a nicely textured dial (supposedly inspired by a AM DB5 front grill) that makes it look truly remarkable

regarding the oversized comments, is this the XL case? (do they still have two different sizes of PML?) maybe going down from a 42mm to a 40 would do the trick for you
post #15670 of 39290
Surprisingly, that is 40mm. GO consolidated their lines, kind of.
