  • Lange1 vs Calatrava - which do you prefer?

    hi all,

    i'm tempted to trade my PP Annual Calendar for one of these plus cash... swaying towards the Calatrava but what do you all think?

    I've always been intrigued by Lange, but that's just me...

        I tried the calatrava on for the first time recently, never thought it would be my cup of tea but I loved it on the wrist.

        Never tried the Lange, not PP though, as someone who has owned neither brand I lust after PP more.

          Lange in a heartbeat.

          In a choice between these two, I prefer the Lange case, hands, larger second dial, Arabics and minute dial - regardless of the manufacturer of the competition.

            Of the two, Lange for the overall aesthetics - even the padded strap looks better. But there's no denying the PP name. Why not just keep the annual calendar, to my mind that would top trump either of the two above.

              My thoughts, too.

                thanks all. i'm looking for something i'll wear more than the annual calendar (above) and with limited finger dexterity i have to get someone else to set it up every time i want to wear it. i'm so rubbish at selling stuff. probably got half the value of a pre owned watch in a pile of hifi to sell on ebay... might spur me on to get rid of that... hmmmmm

                  The Patek, without a doubt.
                  The hobnail bezel is truly iconic.

                  That particular Lange just looks too heavy-handed in its design.

                    The Patek, if im chosing i'd look for another dial color.

                      pretty much 50/50 split. and i've realised it's an '1815' and not a 'lange 1'. need to try them on to make a decision which is tricky in Devon
