  • My heart beats for A. Lange & Söhne – even from a certain distance 🙂
    In every category…
    It’s the details I like…

  • I voted for Patek most prestigious and Lange best design and most innovative. I have watches from Patek, Lange and Vacheron. I dont think Vacheron and Breguet are in the same league as Patewk and Lange. Patek watches are amazingly fine. No show off but details and quality are outstanding. They work extremely well and not too big. Patek is the champion of classical watches like Calatrava and of Annual Calendars. No real competition from the others on these. The world time watch is the most clever system of multi time zone watches in my view.Lange is a different but equally appealing world. Owning a Lange is like coming back on time to the court of Saxony in Dresden. The watches are the most beautiful watches in the world in particular on their back! Most of Lange are hand wound whereas a lot of Patek are self winding.Lange is also very innovative with off centered dials and hands and things of incredible thinking like the Lange Zeitwerk that no other watchmakers produce!
    Vacheron has some very beautiful designs magnified by size. Their watches are bigger on average than Patek so if you have a very big wrist or like big watches they may be the one to go.Their Quay de l’ile collection mixing metals is very innovative.I am less convinced by experience of VC reliability compared to Patek and Lange unfortunately.

  • My opinion is almost identical to mr. D’Artagnan. The most simple thing not talking about technology is the fact that I like more the greater size calibers and this is done better by Lange. Until then i’ll wait for the money to collect to buya Lange. Cheers people

  • Patek Philippe definitely has a much deserved reputation both historically and currently. But being an owner of both Patek and Lange, I can say specifically to my own watch wearing perspective, that Lange has a more considered and elaborate movement design and by a hair beats out Patek in the design department. I have spoken with my other collector friends and they feel the same way. Patek is legend, no doubt about it, but the Germanic ethos embodied in the Langes is, in my opinion, second to none.

  • Keep up the excellent reporting Alexander luv it!

    To me A. Lange & Sohne are the most beautiful watches in the world,
    a true work of art… Patek is too comertial now to be call “A work of art”.

    Greetings Mr Linz. Keep up the good work!!!

  • Prestige: no doubt PP (overpriced but best resell value, imho too small watches for men); innovation: Breguet; design: Breguet(they follow their line of the “heroic” past combined with stunning innovations).

  • I like your online polls and always take part in it.

    Your present poll is really exciting!

    Thanks Alexander!!!

  • 1. Most prestigious – PATEK PHILIPPE
    2. Most innovative – A. LANGE & SOEHNE
    3. Best designs – BREGUET & A. LANGE & SOEHNE

  • An interesting test but the results will be skewed as a result of the countries where the respondents live. For example,in the US, among those who can afford them, Patek is considered by many to be the most prestigious while in France Vacheron, Audemars or Cartier would probably lead. I have no idea how these brands rank in Switzerland but at one time Rado (pre-Swatch) was the brand most Swiss bought. In North America I am willing to bet that if the public was asked Rolex would come out as tops.
