It must be because of my rather small wrists haha. It's a 36mm case so it's actually on the smaller side in terms of size, but it does have some height to it.

Thicker movement, due to the number of complications involved.

yup. all the watch with a ton of complications i know of are very thick. i believe that is why all the most complicated watches are pocket watches. the famous PP graves is like the size of a grapefruit i think. its the only way to do it, as far as i know.

Not quite directly related to the thread topic, but I did want to share that I received this MTO today via Leffot (Gaziano & Girling Colcutt in vintage cherry / pin grain, Deco Last).  

 

Thinking one must do the 3970 some justice when it comes to appropriate footwear.  As Belligero might say, shouldn't put on the proper "movement" without the proper "hoof-ment."

 

 

 

Action shots coming soon, paired with an appropriate timepiece.

Not a fan of that shoe personally, but if you dig it, more power to you. But more importantly, invest in more shirts for that watch, less shoes peepwall[1].gif

Very nice, I think these will do just fine.

I haven't.

 

The rubber strap just works so well.

 

Besides it was designed specifically to go with the dial, and it just looks fabulous in my opinion.

Sure looks like a Peseux/ETA 7001. Stowa uses them.

So expected! But nonetheless, absolutely gorgeous! Does it meet your expectations? I feel that no watch collection can ever be complete without a reverso. And that red Reverso is nothing if not muy especial.
post #18329 of 37515
Thank you for your kind words. It certainly meets all expectations, though one thing I did not anticipate is that it is a fingerprint magnet!!! No wonder they clingwrap the watch head in-store. happy.gif

And I know, I know... I'm pretty terrible at keeping stuff on the down low, and I'm pretty hopeless at being a tease. No way am I going to no frills SF and drop a 3970J on the board out of the blue, I don't think I'm even capable of that though it certainly would be fun.

When I proposed to my now-fiancee, it was a complete non-surprise for her. As in literally everything, from the setting to the timing to the way I proposed and even the ring, everything was expected, a complete non-surprise. She stuck around though for the proposal, (very kindly) acted surprised and said yes, so I guess I must have been doing something right... heh.

I guess I just can't contain my excitement in the lead up, and stuff leaks out. shog[1].gif

(that's not what she said)
