what a wonderful decision and reason to buy one!
First of all, sincere congratulations on your son´s upcoming PhD!
That´s a great achievement and a very special moment both in your and your son´s life. No wonder it makes you happy and proud, rightly so! And it´s a great opportunity for a special gift either, for which the Cuvette seems to be a more than great match!
To have it engraved is a very nice plan either, especially as Lange really does go all the way in this regard.
The hand engraving, such as found on the balance cock, is a great work and makes each watch more special.
And the "Cuvette" is just inviting for such!
What might be interesting is the reason why there are 38 pieces each.
The number goes back to Mr. Oeding-Erdel, who is the initiator of the "Cuvette", a true enthusiast of fine watches himself and counts 38 springs in age:

It´s just great to hear one of this is going to top of such a special time in your and your son´s life!
Thank you kindly for sharing the story!
