1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    Beautiful. Which Reverso is that?

    Also love the Milgauss there - looks much better than in most pics I've seen. Maybe I should go take a look in person.

    I had the pleasure of getting a strap made by ABP while in Paris this year. Pricey, but veery nice guys to deal with and the experience great being able to search through bins and select the hide I wanted.

    The JLCs are fantastic; gents, you can be certain that I write this with a degree of envy.

    Love, love, love the Reverso Grand Date. But Greg and Miguel, do you think that the watch wears too big to be a true dress watch, in your opinion? I really am just asking, as I have never handled or worn one in real life.

    I'm a different Greg and a previous owner of an RGD, so I'll give my own 2 cents. I wear a lot of big watches (several PAMs, a BigP, etc...) but I felt that the RGD's proportions didn't work on my wrist. Too thick for the case size. It sat quite high on my wrist and that was noticeable (at least to me). That was my only problem with it because everything else about this watch is fantastic.

    If you're interested in the larger men's size, I haven't been wearing mine and was thinking of letting it go.

    Well of course, your 2 cents are probably worth more than anyone else's 2 cents around here when it comes to watches. I too like bigger watches, at least slightly larger proportional to wrist size, and have never handled a RGD in person, but feel like it wouldn't work well on my wrist either, and I probably have smaller wrists than you, Greg. Mine are just under 7 and I think you said once yours were like 7.25 -7.5. Beautiful watch though. As far as photos go, my favorite design, maybe even more so than some of the beautiful Lange's and FP Journes. Oh well, I won't stress about it too much [​IMG]

    You should stop by a store and try it on. You may feel very differently about it on the wrist. [​IMG]

    Greg is quite right by saying that the case wears high on the wrist. It's noticeable especially on my puny wrist. Me myself doesn't mind this at all. I had read about it being high on your wrist, but i wanted to see for myself and just tried it on. That would be my advice.
