Glad to see you are no longer just a lurker. You should get extra credit for reading all 1100+ pages...I skipped some after finding this thread. I'm sure most people can't tell white gold from platinum...but part of the luxury of splurging for something that is platinum is that its something only you know and can appreciate everytime you feel its heft. Great watch! Very nice...always a treat to see what makes a watch tick. Thanks Stitch. The Squadra is a bit thick for me, but a beautifu watch. Seeing all the beautiful JLCs here definitely makes me want to add a Reverso to my collection at some point. Glad you enjoyed the photo of the movement & rotor even if you aren't an AP fan. I've always been impressed with its movement as its one of the thinnest automatic movements that was ever available...and its also special because in its base form it also served as the movement in the original Patek Nautilus and Vacheron's 222. Its the only movement ever to be used by all of the "Big Three."
