    Default "Even A Blind Pig Can Find An Acorn..." Lange & Sohne

    I was very fortunate to acquire this watch, which arrived today. It's a rare beast to the say the least...Joe A.

    Joe - that is one of the watches I'd like to own - or at least see in person - one day! Great catch! Did you pick it up for a song? Ken

    The watch looks great. Just curious, why are the inside minute numbers reversed?

    Any particular reason you've posted this distastefully dialed watch in the PX?

    The runes should not be venerated but are part of history and are part of this watch. A bit different than spray painting symbols out of hate.

    The reversed numbers are curious. What piece of equipment would require using a mirror to see one's watch?

    The watch was used for navigational purposes, and sometimes looked upon through a mirror or negative photographic.
