    I was in a JLC boutique in Cozumel last week and tried on the "regular" Reverso and it was f'g ridiculous on my wrist (read BIG). the ultra thin was better but I think the older version of the Grande Taille was actually shorter across the wrist. I do have small wrists but have they just gotten bigger (length and width) the past couple years?

    not really.

    This is why I always recommend people to try on the Reverso. They can be an awkward fit to some wrist.

    hmmm... but I had tried on a Grande Taille from early 2000's and tho' it was obviously a bit thinner than the recent versions, it fit noticeably better lengthwise across the wrist. Not sure if there are variations between models but I guess I'll really have to start paying attention to dimensions and measurements... Thanks WG!

    Could surely be - Rolex has not only produced Oyster watches, but also a lot of presentation and "standard" dress pieces.
