Response to Sorry, Thomas M and Thomas P, but....
My comments may not be very useful, as I seem to be one of the very few Lange fans who is not a fan of the L1.
For me, hands down, I would take the Pt. Moonphase, but that is because I am so in love with the Moonphase.
Both watches are quite different, different enough that they are not, in my eyes, substitutes for each other except for the "tug" of the rarity of the Moonphase, to someone that does not clearly prefer the moonphase.
If the Moonphase doesn't do it for you, go for the L1. But only if you are sure you won't grow to appreciate the Moonphase. If you are unsure, get the Moonphase (assuming it if "fairly priced") - you can always sell it easily - it is in very high demand - and you can most likely get the rg L1 fairly readily.
But again, if you are certain about the Pt Moonphase leaving you "cold" then don't waste the journey.
