Recently, I wore two pocket-watches, just like in the very old days (17th-18th century) when one would wear two watches in order to check the time against each other. One gold chained watch in each trouser pocket.
I was thinking about the fact that the Reverso used to be a "sporting" watch, and started thinking I'd like a sportier strap for it with contrast stitching - sort of a homage to the watch's roots. Since I have a very formal looking black strap, I was hoping for brown or tan.
Finding a contrast strap that would fit the very thin JLC deployant was a problem. Even JLC didn't seem to have a contrast stitching strap that was thin enough at the end. Aftermarket was a prob because the strap is an odd size. Frustrated, I went to Tourneau in Palm Beach and dug through every strap they had. I finally found a Rolex strap that fit.
Is the Classique size a good one for small wrists? Mine is 6.25"
I personally think it's a bit too small and I'd go with the GT case (not XGT though). 6.25" wrists are not that small. You wrist is probably 2.5" wide (viewed from above), i.e. roughly 62-65mm. A 42mm watch (incl lugs) would look very well proportioned
