    I just plunked down a deposit on one of the last available Reverso Tributes on the brown Fagliano strap...apparently Fagliano made some of the straps the wrong width, so it will be a couple weeks.

    I've never been more excited paying full price for something. :D

    Ultra Thin I tried on for size today:

    ^^ lovely ^^



    mimo - very classy, and great strap choice.




    dino made some good points already.

    what size wrist do you have? small, regular or large? there are a ton of models right now, do you have any idea about what you are leaning towards? do you want a reverso duo, with another time zone on the other side, or a metal back for engraving? do you want a busy complicated watch, or an understated 2 hander?

    if you can narrow down what you are looking for, it will make it much easier to give a useful suggestion.

    For Reversos I personally prefer the time only models with solid casebacks, like the ultra thin posted above or like this TT1931:

    or if they are too large, the classique.

    i like triptyque as well, the mechanics behind making the complications in the back plate functional, are brilliant.

    Stitchy, you are a total tourbert, but I will admit to admiring the aesthetic and technical quality of those watches.

    My parents left Ireland in 1952 and headed out to Africa for my Dad's work. To celebrate my Mother brought him a gold plated Omega Seamaster with a manual movement. When he retired is decided to "never wear a watch again..." and I got it and had it restored by Omega in Switzerland. It certainly cost more than it was worth if I brought it again but it looks fantastic and as you say has history. I only wear it on special occasions but it feels great to have something 60 years old still going strong and is a nice connection back to my parents also.

    (Thanks Stitch)

    I've never seen anything quite like those...like wearing a steam punk comic book on your wrist! Fabulous!

    Since we're posting Reverso pic...


    It is a pretty new model. I'm eyeing on this right now.

    JLC Grande Reverso Calendar ..the case is also pretty slim.

    ^ Very nice Reversos above!

    PS Suprisingly I enjoy that GMT II with green hand/letters. Is it ceramic?
