    yup this is part of the reverso mystique for me. so many people trading watches, getting a new this and selling that. put your initials on a reverso and it becomes more personal and something you likely will not willingly part with for a very long time. As much as Patek drives this point home with its advertisements, the "taking care of it for the next generation" applies very well to a monogram'd reverso.

    Do it. We can be Reverso internet e-buddies. I'll get one if you get one. :nodding:

    There is some pretty amazing stuff on that site:

    this
    and this
    super impressive. i have long considered putting an engraving on mine on the back plate. i just cant figure out what i would want. its very nice to hear about people actually having engravings done on their reversos.
    lovely as ever.

    Lol your ability to part with it likely won't have as much to do with willingness as finding someone with the same initials and a wad of cash!


    That one was my favorite on that site. Almost makes me wish my Reverso had a solid back (I have the Grande GMT). If I get a 1931 tribute Reverso, I will certainly consider this.

    Great offer! A Reverso internet e-buddy sounds fun. Wish I could take you up on it immediately, but I have to wait a while as I think my wife might be rather annoyed if I bought another watch so soon after she bought me an AP RO. However, we'ved looked at Reversos before and I know she thinks the Reverso is a super cool design & she loves the idea of me having the back engraved and personalized. So it won't be a tough to get her on board! It gives me time to figure out what I would want to put on the back.

    Anyone have an idea of what Mr. Randell's engravings start at? I know the more intricate and time consuming the more it costs, just curious.

    I am sure to the Panny WIS types those watches are totally different but to me they look the same. Nice though.

    Thanks. I've had this strap on my 311 before also (Micah's Duroval) and it rocks.

    Cool 8day tool watch! It looks like it digs into your hand,"ouch." I did try this particular 1 on and it only felt comfortable over a sleeve,I need that extra space off the wrist!
