If you had to pick one...

I was fortunate enough to try on the WG and RG 5270. Both are exquisite pieces from PP.

I had to throw in the Datograph for comparisons.

If you had to pick one, which would it be?

Personally I prefer the newer dial without the pulsation scale, as I find the single rail-road track more balanced. The ones with the pulsation scale looks imbalanced to me, especially the blank from 7 to 9 o'clock versus the rest of the dial. Both dials are nice though, just expressing my preference on the newer one

I just don’t like the lugs or thickness of data. Rg 5170 of those two, but clearly P is the winner of the lineup

5170G-010 for me. I'm aiming to make that my next purchase trying to decide between AD with discount vs buying from a grey

I'm a fan of the 5170r. If going for a Lange comparison, I'd suggest the 1815 chrono in rg.

I really prefer the Date but they take a hit immediately. I'd go WG Patek.

Both take huge hits from MSRP.

Datograph of the group no contest.
