I was inspired by someone's macro photography post and wanted to play around with mine. Hope you enjoy!
Grand Seiko Lake Suwa limited edition, SLGA007
First, some dial shots. Blue waves look a bit like coarse wood this close in. The applied gold GS logo is very clean, well defined.
Bottom half plus a bit of the sharp hands
Look at how sharp those hands are... brushed surface, black polished, sharp angles.
More sexy hand shots
Further out shot
Now, my A. Lange & Sohne Lange 1 Time Zone
Look how deep set the big date window is.
Bottlm right part of dial shows the well polished hands in the sub-dial and it's texture and the finishing on that little triangle indicator of the 2nd time in this sub-dial - London time I. This instance. The red filled indicator means that this selected time zone, London, has daylight savings. So, you would have to mentally add (?) An hour when daylight savings is in effect. I can't you of a watch that can make that adjustment for you..
The Lange tax is gratuitously being paid here. The balance cock is nicely engraved by hand. The regulator is black polished.
Another cock (sorry) holding part of the gear train up close. These are engraved by hand, so you can see some imperfect lines. You can also see the nice brushing on the 3/4 plate behind the gear train.
Angled shot to see some nice black polishing on the bridge and the angled bevels. I've heard the quality of the finishing has gotten slightly worse over the decades and I would love to compare one day. I want to get a gen 1 zeitwerk at some point and so we can do a comparison then!
Will do more shots of my new Moser enamel piece and other watches later.
Avid watch wearer, not collector. Like my children, I love all of my watches equally, but I love my Lange the best.
