That's really beautiful.  Sometimes less "stuff" seems to give more dress watch.  I love the texture of the dial.  That is a peach.

Very kind of you.  Just checking.  By the way, do you ever sell on SF for your employer? And if not, why not?

Hi guys, I would really appreciate any insight you may have about MKII or Sinn. Trying to decide between the two companies and want some expert opinion between the two companies. One is US while the other is made in Germany and I know that depending on my personal taste and style, that will be the biggest deciding factor but I like both brands and feel that they both have something to offer in terms of my style. Thanks guys!

Sinn.

 

Sinn has heritage, MKII makes homages.

 

If its between these two, all other things being equal, the answer is clear.

I would choose SINN. Extremely well made watches for the price. Value isn't necessarily a bad thing. I also like a lot of their designs.

You can't buy heritage - and I'm not sure that Sinn has all that much to boast about anyway.  Some MKII designs I have seen - like the Kingston - look really terrific.  Some are kind of 'meh'. With any boutique brand, there's an open question as to whether they will still be around next year or the year after.  But given the use of standard ETA movements, I wouldn't worry too much about future servicing.

 

 I've owned a couple of Sinns over the years - nice enough watches but I never fell in love with them.  And they are getting kind of pricey for what they offer, in my estimation.  Most of the pieces in the 3-4k - plus range do not represent good value, IMO.  The more basic models are a better bet. What watches were you considering?

 

You might want to look at Damasko as well.

I am curious as to the Forum's opinions on this watch: (Lange Time Zone)

Which dial do you prefer, grey or white?



post #18804 of 35529

^^^ Man, I wish I had that problem.  As the price goes up, my preferences become more conservative, so I'd go white dial here.  Looks like better contrast / legibility as well.  The grey is certainly beautiful, though.

post #18805 of 35529

The grey is interesting and unusual, but I prefer the traditional white.  On top of the rose gold, it just screams "Lange".  Which is a good thing in my opinion.

 

I don't love this watch in particular, to be honest.  But I do love Lange in general, and this is still definitely a Lange.

post #18806 of 35529
I would go with the white dial. Even though grey and rose is a great combination, I would not do it as my first Lange.

Thanks for the input gentlemen! I didn't have a specific model in mind, just trying to look at a variety of brands and learn as much as I can. I am wanting to purchase a watch prior to my wedding and looking to spend $2k on a quality piece that will be my first "quality" watch purchase. Any other hidden gems in terms of brands that you can recommend? Damasko also looks nice as well.

What style of watch are you looking for?

Congrats, Newcomer!

+1 white dial vote for the Lange.
