    I'm aware of the big Jaeger Reverso engraver (http://www.jcengraver.com/), but wondering if any SF'er has experience working with him. I like the 'diamond' monogram shape the best (First Last Middle) and would want to get my 1931 done up in that fashion. (His examples attached).

    Doesn't JLC USA actually recommend him to customers? That would be all the endorsement I need to proceed.

    Just tossing this out there - would a more Art Deco style mot be more appropriate?

    Yes, I believe he is the official engraver for JLC in North America. When you order an engraving at a JLC store in the US, they send it to Randell

    +1 Since he has been JLC's engraver for nearly 2 decades, thats the only person I'd send a watch, particularly a JLC to for engraving. In addition, unlike some engravers...he was a watch maker, so he knows how to take care of a watch. Also, make sure you like how your initial look in that style. I don't like the example above. I'm not positive if the center initial is supposed to be a P or E, and I don't know if the last one is a G or an L. In some fonts letters become too stylized and lose something.

    Fantastic Red Sub!!!! [​IMG]

    George at Tempvs Fvgit scared me off from getting a red Sub. Apparently he stopped buying them because the fakes got too good. He said he used to see red subs quite infrequently and is seeing many more these days. If a pro can't tell a real from a fake, I certainly can't.

    I have seen 'art Deco' Cartier jewelry and a lot of Lucite, but would you mind posting an example of an Art Deco Jaeger monogram style? I'm admitting my complete ignorance.

    And Dino, thank you for your feedback. Sage advice as always. I'm only clinging to the diamond-style monogram as all my father's shirts (hand-me-downs) were embroidered with that (we share a name), so there is some sentimental value but I'm not sold. Just know that I don't want my dog's portrait for eternity on my Reverso to display when I'm not playing polo :violin:

    Stitch, thank you also.

    I don't meant to mire the thread, I just value the opinions and feedback here. Getting this done, to me, would make the watch 'my own,' and hopefully pass it down the same way I was given a Calatrava from my grandfather.
