Sold the Calendrier earlier this year. My only recent addition was the 15202 RO about two months ago, and frankly, it's been on my wrist for about 55 of the last 60 days.

Do you prefer the Lange 1 or the Journe? I've always leaned Journe, but am now moving in the Lange 1 direction because of reliability problems I've heard of with Journe.
I have a strong preference for Lange - designs with impact, technical prowess, fantastic wrist presence, obsessive built quality, superlative finishing and outstanding customer service. If I could have only one watch it would likely be the Lange 1 MP.
As for Journe, I think I may like the idea and aesthetics of Journe more than the actual watch on my wrist. I've owned and subsequently sold two (Calendrier and Chronometre Souverain), and as much as I enjoyed looking at them, I didn't actually wear them that frequently, oftentimes selecting a Lange in its place. One word on Journe quality - although I didn't experience any issues myself, both watches sold to two different collectors required factory servicing within several months of sale. While the experience frustrated me since the watches were problem-free while in my possession, both buyers seemed to accept factory servicing as an integral part of the Journe ownership experience. Having said all this, I suspect that the original Resonance may find its way to me at some point. There's just something magical about that watch.
