1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I think I'm going to go for the A. Lang & Sohe 1815 in manual.

    Which Dubuis model do you suggest?

    The ones from 1997, 1998, 1999; anything after that is for the most part mass market, popular culture designed drivel.

    Do you think the A. Lang & Sohe is the best option?

    Unless you find a design from Patek, VC or AP that you like more, yes.

    If you like the Lange 1815 you should also consider a Patek 3919, my personal favorite for a simple and elegant dress watch. Another consideration would be a Jaeger Reverso Classic.

    I have a Cartier Tank, which is similar to the Reverso, and I have a Calatrava (5119 G), so both of those are similar to watches I already have. Both with black straps.

    Very nice selections. Of course if you really want to have something different, you could also consider a Corum Golden Bridge, but I think those only come with black staps so you'd still have to change straps.

    I think if you don't have a Lange, the 1815 would be a classic addition to your collection. It's my favorite Lange until you start getting into the high five digit range.

    I saw an article in the FT about the Golden Bridge when it came out; and I tried, straight away, to try and get one; unfortunately wherever I tried was sold out, and I think this is still the case.

    Yes, even after seeing other recommendations, the 1815 is still top of my list; all's left is to find the place which gives me the best discount, and find a friend or relative who is visiting the UK soon so I can claim the VAT back [​IMG]

    You seem to have a fine watch collection, would you be kind enough to post some photos?[​IMG]
