    I thought I recognized the hardware and colour - nice. I have a couple from them as well (black Nato, black/grey Bond RAF, Speedbird RAF) a few years old, I guess, have held up fine. Was contemplating getting the green and the grey Nato too, though I would've liked the grey to be darker. Would like the black braided as well, if they ever get it back in stock.

    Your 1675 looks great :)

    Thats a beauty. The Grande Reverso GMT is a great watch. I'm one of those people that the 8 day case size doesn't work well on, I find the GT case size better for me. I know lots of people that have had issues with the deployant on JLCs (and Langes) and by turning it to face the other direction some people find it more comfortable. Anyway, great watch thanks for sharing a photo.

    Many thanks.

    Yeah, I'm in love with attention to detail on this one. But my wrist is flat and 7-3/4" / 200 mm around; I doubt it would be all that wearable if that wasn't the case, especially with the factory alligator strap. I've read about the upside-down-deployant tip, but I'm very lucky in that it fits the curve of my wrist like it was custom-made when it's on right-side-up as God intended. This is definitely one to try before you buy, though.

    Hey guys!

    Considering some of your advice, I ended up snatching a used 2005 Omega SMP (full-size) from WUS. Surprisingly, it's in near-mint condition, and I'm loving it. Here's how it looks on my 6'' wrist:

    Despite my concerns, It really doesn't look big at all in person. I would have been dissatisfied with the mid-size.

    Congrats on your SMP. Looks great. I think you made the right choice going with the full size watch. Enjoy it!

    I just got the tools to resize the bracelet on my recently purchased used Seamaster titanium chronograph. I have a small wrist too and not a big bracelet fan so will probably get a cordovan strap.

    Fantastic watches Belligero - love them both!

    I love the blue hue of the GMT bezel. Do you a Pepsi bezel too?

    I have previously tried on the Grande Reverso GMT and was quite smitten by it.

    What the hell... They are wrapped around a grenade. +points for most unique watch photoshots.
