    gorgeous, love that reverso. what is the engraving, some kind of flower?

    ^^^The Reverso looks great, and I like the engraving, too. I'd also like to hear details about the engraving.

    The engraving is of a Gloriosa Rothschildiana:

    It was my mom's favourite flower.

    ^^^Wow! They did a nice job engraving an image of it on the watch. Terrific tribute to your mom.

    tremendous, one of the best watches i've seen on here. i prefer the simplicity of your model to some of the more complicated or black faced versions, it has both a dress and sporty feel.
    i met lou reed earlier this month and he was wearing a very similar although vintage reverso. i need to start saving (again).

    A sub vote here. Not a fan of the polished center links on the GMT II.

    Didn't notice that. Nice looking watch, however I prefer the previous version of the GMT.

    Cool photo.

    I can't take the credit; the artist is a friend. Here is some more of her work:
