    Pretty high, I'd guess - first, try calling the boutique.

    Availability depends on which one you are talking about, but as gdl said, all of them are within reach.

    Just remember there are three versions. The worldwide edition will be the easiest to obtain. There are a few taunting me on chrono24. I am unsure about the availability of the 2011 (black casa fagliano strap) US edition from the boutique, but there is one on TZ right now. You will need to call the boutique for the 2012 (brown casa fagliano strap) limited edition.

    :nodding::nodding::nodding:

    I actually made some guttural noise today when I saw it. Then I had to explain to my friend why I made such a sound. Then she judged me.


    Well, everyone is entitled to their opinions, however incorrect they may be :fistbump:. It is a bit of an interesting style though, kind of F.P. Journe-ish. It would look better right-side up I think as well.

    As far as I am concerned, Kari can do no wrong.

    Also, for an excellent read:

    I don't find the design attractive.

    IMO, case/dial design is usually the most lacking skill for independent watchmakers

    Although I agree with that to a certain extent, I have always been drawn to Kari's aesthetic. I like how all of his pieces are distinctly his style, and are quite recognizable. I have always been a fan of his oversized Breguet hands, and the teardrop lugs he uses. With that said, some of his work tends to be a little over-guilloched for my tastes.

    i definitely agree on the case/dial point re: independent makers, and usually, im not a fan of those types of watches. often all kinds of odd bubbles here and there, but there is something about this one i really like.


    :laugh:



    never seen one irl. :(

    from the designs of his i have seen, he does not seem to suffer the above mentioned malady.

    Whats the difference with the worldwide edition to the non-worldwide edition? How do I differentiate one from the other? I checked out Chrono24, I really would prefer buying from a seller in the US (don't want to deal with international shipping and customs) so I guess that is out of the question. I wouldn't mind and actually prefer to buy new if possible too so I guess I have a few phone calls to make. Thanks for all the info.

    The Reverso Worldwide. Notice the sword shaped hands and the alligator strap.



    [​IMG]

    The Limited Edition Reverso US edition 2011 version. Notice the different hands and the richer patina on the dial marker and hands.



    [​IMG]

    The only diff between 2011 and 2012 US edition is the strap color. These are cordovan straps handmade by Casa Fagliano. No replacement straps can be ordered.

    Best of luck man. We want to see pix when you get it!!!
