I know coating is applied to both surfaces for all brands.
thing about lange...is that you can either have power reserve OR day of week function in lange1. not both haha..
lange tourbillon is dreamy... why do 82 additional parts cost tens of thousands of dollars more?
It not just the application of the coating by how the coating is applied. For some reason, the German's do it better than most brands.
There is a reason for that. Firstly, the Power Reserve is applied for the Lange 1 because it makes sense for a manually wound movement.
In the new Lange 1 Daymatic, they have introduced an automatic movement, which really makes a power reserve function redundant. Hence you don't really need both of them together.
Personally, I prefer the Lange 1 Daymatic for the better dial configuration as the single factor that detracted the Lange 1 for me was the inconvenience of viewing the dial when wearing a buttoned cuff.
I too question the value to tourbillons and have very little interests in them.
