thanks, guys. i wish i had stuff i was willing to sell. could probably make it happen. sadly, i dont want to sell anything that is worth anything.
Maybe the GO could be Miss West Virginia...sort of cross eyed, missing a front tooth, and with a handlebar mustache...but feel free to go for what you like. Just kidding.While the GO offers a good value and a "family resemblance," I stand by my earlier statements regarding the GO.

If the post was about the recent brouhaha about Miss Teen Delaware, well, I will neither admit nor deny that I may have seen her in action.
Would that I had the means to acquire all the stuff I want for friends I appreciate.....
Family resemblance or not, I'd choose what I prefer. If I limited myself to the originators of a certain look, and ignore anything inspired by the original, I wouldn't be very happy. I prefer the Lange 1 to the pano, I prefer the panomaticlunar to the Lange 1 moonphase, as I see the dial as an aesthetic improvement. You value the originator factor more than I do, and likely prefer the overall look of the Lange anyway as well. Different strokes.
Yes, I do place value on creativity and originality. Beyond that I also find the Lange 1 and Lange 1 Moonphase far more attractive than any GO Pano design. I don't own a Lange or a GO, but I recognize GO makes a good quality watch and its significantly less expensive. However a GO would never fulfill my desire to have a Lange 1, so for me it would be pointless to purchase a GO. To each his own.
Love that 3970!!!! Hot, humid weather? Preserve the strap by giving the Daytona & Explorer more wrist time .
Now, I might get this post directly into the WAT . Operating knowledge of blogs and forums is NOT hardwired at birth o
So, here's an ancient Baume et Mercier Geneve with a Bidynator movement. Shown with, I believe, the original crocodile strap of which B&M wants $300 new. AYKM ? Anyway, just look at that face !! Sweet for about 60 years old ?
