I tried it on at the FPJ boutique in Tokyo and it didn't speak to me. The brightness and the sheen of the blue added a certain loudness that felt inconsistent with the character of the watch. I agree that you need to try it on to see if it works for you, it isn't one size fits all.
IWC 3706 is nice but the 3705 is my favorite of the bunch.Hard to find though.

I havent tried the Jumbo on in the flesh as of yet. Frankly, I am still in tire kicking mode. My "collection" is very small at the moment - I have a blue face Dornbluth 99.1 and a Sinn U1. Unlikely to go with anything dressier than the Dornbluth but that still leaves many potential options. Other ideas I have considered are:- 1931 tribute Reverso- 1948 tribute Reverso- one of the JLC Deep Sea models- vintage Rolex Pepsi GMT or 5513- Tudor vintage snowflake (blue face)-...
