    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    No and no. But between those choices, the latter.

    I'd vote for the former

    JLC is more of a dress watch that will work great with a suit and tie. This AP is a bit more sporty and will look good with a suit as well as jeans.

    JLC = more formal, AP = more versatile.

    Whatever watch you decide on, make sure you try it on your wrist before deciding. I've tried on many Reversos and could never get a comfortable fit. Switching from the deployant clasp to a tang buckle helps a bit.

    I respectfully disagree about the reverso. I love it and I love it in gold as well.

    I would say the first, though they are both nice I silver is more my color and because of that I am quite partial to it.

    Of the two, I prefer the tank. Neither brand would be my first choice, however.

    I respectfully disagree about the reverso. I love it and I love it in gold as well.

    Unless it's a big Squadro type sporty reverso, I think that reversos almost have to be yellow gold. A dressier-design reverso in white metal just doesn't do IT for me.

    Neither of those watches cry out to me. The AP certainly is more versatile, but I have no idea if the OP wants versatility or a "dress watch."
