1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Well quite - you can present it to the missus as a 30% saving on what you would have bought, and that's before any actual discount. It would almost be negligent not to buy a nearly-new one!

    In the mean time, surely your "endgame" is the one you buy after the 5004 and the 5941? I'm still wondering what the wifely companion pieces will be as you take these steps. [​IMG]

    LOVE the micro rotor.
    --
    so, i need a new leather strap for my reverso, but the strap has these plastic caps at the end so it sits flush against the case. the area between the lugs is pretty tall so a regular strap would be dwarfed sitting there.

    i sent a message to CF to see if they can make one, but i imagine that their price would be pretty similar to what i would pay for a JLC strap, and im not positive it would fit as well. also, with my connections, i think i could get a decent discount on the JLC strap, but its still not gonna cheap.

    so, basically, this sucks. im thinking of selling the metal bracelet i have for it to fund the strap, and i should have some cash left over too. i have seen them sell for over a grand on ebay. redonk.

    le sigh.

    Lange has made a number of small volume watches over the years that have done quite well on the secondary market and have become good investments. The 1815 Moonphase and the various tourbillon models are examples. There are no guarantees but I suspect this one will be quite rare and extremely desirable.

    Agree. But JLC OEMs are pretty nice IMO and if you can get a good deal it would be worth it just knowing the strap will fit perfectly.

    the strap is great. its only ruined because i wore it at my old job and sweated in it like an athlete for 10 hours a day, that was the reason i got the metal bracelet to begin with. the strap lasted over 5 years under heavy wear. in my current office job, im sure it will last 10 years at least. now its just a question of when i pony up.

    not sure brown is an option, but i wonder, do you guys think it would look good in brown, if it is?

    It would look fine on brown, though I'd stick to a very dark brown.

    Dark brown or black would be my vote. Sweet watch in any case
