Master Ultra Thin Moon, or Master Ultra Thin Reserve de Marche. I forgot how much I love the Reserve de Marche. There are aspects I love about the previous version of the RDM, and that I wish were imported into the new one, but I love the asymmetry.

i am all for asymmetry, but i would stick with the MUTM of the two. i think it has a nicer look imo.

I have a couple weeks before the MUT Moon comes in. But the casualness of the MUT RDM really appeals to me. I am worried that the MUT Moon will wear a bit too formal, and it felt a little out of place when dressing more casual. The MUT RDM on a tan ostrich strap would look great methinks.

If you want a watch to work with casual outfits, go for something a bit more chunky, such as the lovely Master Chrono that was just posted

Hoping the duck is cooked perfectly as a result of that fantastic chronograph...and some culinary skills never hurt either.

Alas, I already have a Chrono in the form of the Speedy Pro. As much as I love Chronos, I want just a bit more variety smile.gif. Being able to dress the watch I buy down at the end of the day is not really much of a priority to me though! More of a plus, than anything!

Good point! I should do it for the sake of the forvm!

Let me know when you are in Philly; if you need someone to convince you it's a good idea to purchase both I'll be happy to play the role of devil on your shoulder.
 

I will definitely let you know when I get to Philly. We could pop by Govberg for sure. I don't know if the purchase of both is even remotely in the books though, unfortunately! And interesting observation about the MUT Moon--I guess I always thought my JLC MC could be dressed down fairly easy, but I thought that was mainly attributed to the large bezel.

Yes, I definitely think the MUT Moon is more classic and objectively more appealing. But there is something about the RDM that I always found charming. I think I prefer the former version and its quirkiness, but the latter definitely has its charms. The new case is glorious.

Also, to continue the theme: Speedy Pro and Halibut... not quite its natural environment!

Surely the proper companion for a halibut is a SeaMaster?

From a purely selfish and voyeuristic point of view, I'm looking forward to this: considering the level of awesomeness you have accrued from zero in a mere three months, the fact that you described this "itch" elsewhere as a "possible end-game watch", indicates it might be pretty spectacular, and certainly in the eyes of cheap bums like me. So, thanks in advance!

I think the RDM is a very special watch, and will bring more pleasure over the long term than the MUTM. The RDM can also take a tan strap with aplomb, and something the MUTM cannot do.
