From a design standpoint, I think the XV was just about perfect.  I do have a real soft spot for the XII, though, and that lovely JLC movement that powers it.  I have been trying to convince a buddy of mine to sell me his for years now.  No dice.

A big problem with the XV for me is the bracelet, the XII beads of rice version is so much more comfortable and imho better looking than the XV bracelet.

I think I have four versions of this, including one like this.
Also, it may be the photo, but that doesn't really look like a pie-pan dial.

I have an FC, love the value, and she continually compliments me on it. She also expressed interest in the "wearing your boyfriends watch" look so popular today and especially a gold watch.

This fits the bill for now. Came on Genuine Alligator (or Croc, I forget) band too!


Nice watch! I have an FC and absolutely love it. Planning on another. Now, If only they would get rid of the "heartbeat" watches that look like they are from target and produce a female manufacturer.

The same as seeing a woman in a mans dress shirt....

Yah, it's the photo (not the best) but the pie-pan is not as pronounced as others and the lay out hides the pan definition which for me is a good thing as I'm not crazy about the heavy pie-pan look. When the dial was off the case you can see the pie ridges and raised dial.
