I looked at them when I bought my Grande Classique and while beautiful and slim I found them to be a little to minimalist for my taste in watches.

Why? It is extremely not popular! I picked it up from a private collector in HK at merely $5500 USD, unbelievable.

Pretty good buy - one fetched $8,300 at auction last year.

Gentlemen,

Can anyone of the fine gentlemen on this board tell me which manufacturers makes the movements for which brand?

For example, I read somewhere that JLC makes the movements for a Patek??

No, Patek makes most of its own movements, with some exceptions, including (ironically/bizarrely) its very hot perpetual calendar chronograph (Lemania).

Could somebody point me towards some entry-level watches that would look good on somebody with skinny wrists? Mine seem to measure at a little over two inches at the point I would wear a watch.

You should focus on watches with a 34-38mm case.

Yes, but it was a highly refinished ebauchè (not that the Lemania is a bad movement, far from it!), and meets the highest of Patek's standards (Poinçon de Genève), and uses an in-house manufactured perpetual calendar module.

Until of course Patek made their own in-house automatic chronograph...the cal. CH 28. As found in the new Annual Calendar Chronograph, ref. 5960P, which uses a CH 28-520 IRM QA 24H movement.

Here is my daily wear Omega Speedmaster Professional. I love this watch. It is not too ostentatious and takes abeating. I also like that the back of the watch shows the movement, this model does not cap the back. Apologies for the quality of the pics.

Here is my FPJ Octa. Red gold with white gold dial..I am told that it is a rare combo.

It has the brass movement...cheaper but classic.
