And to boot, Hodinkee makes it sound like the 15202 is the RO 'Jumbo'...
Would you guys that have been looking/have purchased mind posting up a few pics? I am still paying for my Reverso Tribute with Fagliano strap but I have always loved the baseline RO's...
The 15202 is 39mm. Its much thinner than the 15400 (which is the 41mm) RO. The 15202 is referred to as the Jumbo because back when it was originally released in 1972, 39mm was a a very large watch. Obviously today, 39-40mm is a relatively average size. The ultra thin automatic movement caliber 2120, the thinness of the case and the petite patisserie is part of what makes this watch so special. The 15400 is nice, but after trying one on, it was not even a close decision for me as to which to choose.
Here are a few quick photos of my 15202 "Jumbo." It was purchased new about 2 months ago.
The lighting really does affect the color of the dial. Its a deep blue but at times it can look very dark gray, and under bright light it looks like a really rich deep blue.
