I like A. Lange, I have an 1815 Up/Down for everyday use and a Lange 1 for special occasions.

BTW, great story on the company history from its beginnings as a pocket watch company through two world wars, being a soviet satellite state and eventually reunification with (West) Germany.

Curious, I thought that ALS was rather new? Did a few companies come together to form what we have now?

Quick background by Ben Clymer here says under 20 years?

The pink dial Eberhardt is sick (left center). I also like the Universal (top right) although it's supposedly a huge watch at like 45mm. Of course the Lange is incredible, but easier obtained than the other two.

I'd love to have a split seconds chrono, but with the last Phillips auction and Hodinkee hyping up them up, I doubt I can afford one.

Short story is the family retained the rights to the name/brand through all the years and started making watches again once the Berlin Wall fell and East Germany was unified with West Germany. In 1990 with financial assistance from several Swiss watch makers, they started making watches and their first watch, Lange 1 set the benchmark for future watches to follow. A few years back I visited their store in Dresden and as an owner given a couple of nice gifts and an afternoon coffee. Couple of pictures of the store and my 1815, the Lange 1 is in a safety deposit box as I said for special occasions, otherwise I would have posted that picture as well.

I would love to get my hands on one of these special Mclaren Tag Heuers for a reasonable price but they are damn hard to find.

I really cannot think of a single reason to justify the portfolio of cars I own! Oh wait, I got one.... it's sooooo much FUN
