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 I think it was their first stab at offering a lined Chukka, and has been replaced by the Chiltern.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 difference being that the Woburn has 2 eyelets, the Chiltern 3. I think the last is identical, the very round and somewhat wide 224. The suede is not the traditional snuff, it's more a rust color.

I got them at Garde-Temps, a vintage watch shop located in Galerie Vivienne, Paris (2nd Arrondissement). 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 price:

You might want to give them a try.

Thank you. From your pic I think it looks slightly less rounded than the Chiltern, but great boot either way.

Great photos. Thank you, and my compliments on beautiful purchases.
Some of those watches look rather beefy but a pleasure to look at.

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.

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 pictures.

Case in point:







Here, the watch looks out of proportion with my 16.5cm wrist.

But look at the following ones:







It looks a lot more reasonable, doesn't it?

Given that the Reverso comes in 4 sizes, it is imperative to try different models to check which ones fit. In my case, the Classic was way too small, the 976/986 way too big (lovely proportions, though), the GT very acceptable but I chose the XGT in this particular version (GMT) for its versatility.

flanker - it looks perfectly fine on your wrist. I used to own a RGD a few years ago and although I loved the watch, I had to sell it because of how it was sitting on my wrist. I completely agree that everyone should try the different case sizes and find the one that works for their wrist. I don't have small wrists (I wear PAMs and IWC big pilot without any issue) but my issue with the XGT case is more a matter of proportions than simply size - it is the only case size in the Reverso range that has a different height to length/width ratio. The height was disproportionally stretched compared to how the case size is stretched vs GT or Classic. I understand it was by design because JLC wanted to have a case where they could comfortably fit multiple complications and felt the additional height was needed. It just doesn't feel right to me - but I'm in a small minority given how incredibly successful the whole XGT range has been for the brand

Great collection all around, the C&J Gatsby is one of my favorite shoes.
