Fiancé Hedonist is starting to inquire about what sort of watch I might like as a wedding present.
It would certainly be a dress watch. Preferably a precious metal. But I don't want her to break the bank on it, so I'm thinking pre-owned would be ideal.
So allow me to solicit suggestions! The budget is <$10k
- Must not be overly complicated (two complications max)
- Classic enough that I won't ever hate it (probably will be engraved)
- Automatic or hand-wound
- Around 37mm-40mm bezel
- Platinum preferred (though unlikely) - Gold ok.
- On the thinner side
- Contains faceted elements that catch the light, without going overboard
Any suggestions gents? Pictures welcome.
Late to the party on this one (hopefully not too late). The original JLC MUT dress watch ticks all your boxes except size. 34mm, but insanely thin (Cal 849 is only 1.85mm thick) and a true dress watch. Extremely elegant and perfect to wear for a formal occasion like your own wedding. Get the version with the sapphire back and marvel at a true ultrathin (a complication in itself). It was made in steel, white/rose gold and per your request, platinum.
Otherwise, I concur with others on a classic Reverso.
