Maybe it's about time you obsessed over another brand? I'd personally like to see more Langes and VCs.  Just saying. lurker[1].gif

Well, I DID find this Lange quite appealing: http://www.hodinkee.com/blog/the-lange-1815-rattrapante-perpetual-calendar

Thinking laterally, I'm wondering what kind of watch Mrs Frilly might require as a bonus to authorise this one.

 

But it is awesome.  And it's also different to all the Pateks.  I think you have a case for owning this, Frilly.  Then I want to come to your house and try them all on. :)

Thoughts?

Would buy

Had this for a few years now. Keeping looking at exchanging it for something else but I never quite make the leap

post #19630 of 37171
its a great watch, why leap at all?
post #19631 of 37171
Great photoshop, I love how better it looks with the blued hands. If there's enough demand I don't doubt nomos will soon make one.

I have a sub and a two-tone baume mercier capeland chrono, as well as a vintage IWC and Longines. I'm looking for a new watch, and I'm torn on which direction to go. I really like the Breitling gmt 44. Anyone have any thoughts? I know the price is steep, but I can get a good price from an AD I'm friends with.

I also like the PAM 233 and PAM 320, but I'm not 100% sure how I'll feel about Panerais over the long term. I've liked them since learning about them in the late 90s, but I never pulled the trigger on one.

233, imo.

But what a sweet deal, a split-seconds perpetual calendar chronograph in rose gold for only $189,000?  Why, that's a whole lot less than Patek's comparable offering, the 5204 at $317,500! And Lange having the same or even better level of finishing and quality than Patek (oops, sorry mafoofan, did I blaspheme?)... best jump on this, right?

 

How I wish I had that kind of dough to spare, even if ADs in the US had these in stock (I suspect they will be pretty rare).

 

The other potential issue with Lange - and yes, I know we shouldn't be buying watches as investments, but at this price point you've got to wonder how values will trend - is that resale value is nowhere near as good as Patek or the most desirable Rolex pieces.  You're looking at about half or less than that of the retail price if you try to offload your ALS pre-owned.  

 

Now, if I can get a mint pre-owned ALS rattrapante at $90,000 or so then maybe I should move some investments around indeed...stirpot.gif

I suspect never!  The 3970J is my endgame watch, right?  Right????  

 

Right???????? decisions.gif

Glad I could make you laugh a bit.

Agreed, at those price points one shouldn't have to deal with compromises or trade offs.

You looking at pieces that aren't from Patek or Rolex...say its not so. If the ransom to get the real Frills back is roughly a perpetual calendar from a high end company...well if 15 of us "regulars" donate a dollar a year ...we should have the real Frills back ...in just a few thousand years ; )
