I hate them with a passion. I find it is a crime against humanity to separate a big toe from its little brothers. I'm 40, used to live in Paris, now live in a tropical country (Singapore) and still you won't catch me dead wearing them. PS: I hated them when I was 20 as well, so it's not a generational thing in my case.
I'd go for the JLC, such a timeless classic. But I'd consider the rose gold version rather that the yellow gold one. It's warmer, and incredibly classy. Otherwise, as one of the PP has mentioned, the Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Traditionnelle in 38mm would be an excellent choice.

But I guess it's the price to pay for the functions, especially the 8 days power reserve,
I have a number of watches, but I've been wearing this one a lot recently. Despite its size, it fits well under a shirt cuff (Hackett tailored fit in this example)

These pictures are worth a thousand words. I agree that the XGT case has a lot more presence, and sits higher on the wrist that a GT or a Classic, which are more slender. But bear in mind that this is exaggerated in these wristshots because of the angle of the...

Thanks for the kind comments. As a matter of fact, there are just two really beefy watches: the Panerai and the Seiko, wich are both 44mm wide and 16mm thick. For sure, they do not suit all occasions, but look really nice with sportier outfits.

They have a very nice selection but the price is very steep: EUR 30 for 1, EUR 50 for 2. There is a website that has more or less the same selection, at a more reasonable...

Do you know what last it's on and whether that's the normal C&J snuff suede? It's a model they had for just a couple of years at the Paris shop, at least 7 or 8 years ago. I haven't seen it since then. I think it was their first stab at offering a lined Chukka, and has been replaced by the Chiltern. The...
