Default Which Lange?

Just came back from the shop. Totally enchanted!

Which will you choose? Lange 31 or the latest Richard Lange Tourbillon.

They are simply gorgeous!

Survey, survey!

What do you want to do with it? Wear it, or leave it in your watch winder?

If you are going to leave it in your watch winder, get the Tourbillon I wouldn't dare go out with a hundred thousand dollars worth of watch on my wrist!

Wear it. Its pretty safe to wear practically any watch as long as one dont walk to dark areas - which every country will have.

The watch winder is to help do the winding work which I have no use for. I manually wind every watch, my wife and mine. Good exercise for the fingers!

Both are of the same price range. And both look pretty to me. Really hard to choose.

Anyway, thanks for the advise. One up to the Tourbillon.

I like the Lange 31 more. Easier to read the time with the hour and minutes on the same dial. Better every day proposition. But I think every watch enthusiast needs to own a tourbillon at some point in their lives, so I would vote for that. +1 Tourbillon for me

Lange 31. A 31 day power reserve to me is more impressive than a Tourbillon.

Jerome, somehow I think a house there would be just a bit more expensive that a Lange 31...

Jerry, if you are splurging, go for the tourbillon! It will entertain you every time you look at it.
