    I love this. The lines are clean and classic, and the moonphase is my favorite complication from an aesthetic perspective. The hour markers work well, and despite what others may say 37mm is in the sweet spot for timeless proportions.

    The only adjustment I would have made would be to place the seconds hand within the moonphase aperture, but as is this is certainly a handsome timepiece.

    Interesting, thought the case size was 39mm? Yeah I agree, I really like it. The watch looks very elegant and the size doesn't bother me at all. I use to think most Pateks were too small, but after trying them on a few time, I'm glad they make most of their watches under 40mm.

    Isn't the Richard Lange PLM in your avatar a 40mm? [​IMG]

    All kidding aside, 40mm is ideal for me. YMMV based on wrist size, personal preference etc.

    Ha ha.... the Richard Lange PLM is - and will continue to remain - only in my avatar, barring an IPO for a company I have yet to found or lottery winnings from a ticket I refuse to buy. Case dimension is actually 41.9mm.

    [​IMG] I know the feeling. I didn't know it was bigger than the regular RL. I have my eye on the Daymatic in RG - much more modest of a grail!

    My bad - the RL PLM is 40.5mm, must have confused it with the L1 timezone at 41.9mm. [​IMG] I strapped on the Daymatic in Milan a few months ago. Very handsome, but I've developed a preference for manual winds over the years so the L1 for me remains the iconic Lange.

    +1 on all this. I'm not a fan of gold whatsoever but this thing caught even my eye. If it came with roman numerals (and an IV instead of a IIII) I think I'd cum in my pants.

    Yay on the JLC, moonphase is my favourite complication. And 36-38mm is my preferred size for a dress watch, so 37 would be ideally.

    Quite difficult to find in most good dress watches, from what I've seen. The ones that did have it looked a little unbalanced with the VIII across the dial.

    I like that JLC moonphase but something about the proportions of the bezel and markers (both very slightly too thick) bothers me a little.
