Finally a decent size dress watch.

Now just need to make my appointment....... But it does mean that this will have to wait a bit longer....

Need to decide if it is worth pushing the BP back for. :(

Advice welcome!

BP more wearable. GO more special. Hmmmmmm! Both nice.
I will enjoy sitting on the fence!

Well Steve - you are a fan of GP, so I say bring forward part of your 2016 allocation and go for it!

Has to be the white dial one Nick, but personally I'd get the Big Pilot.

Nick, I would hold out for the Big Pilot...

It may be a personal thing, but with watches like the GO, I've never understood why a maker would waste the available real estate on a watch face that way - it just make the details smaller and harder to appreciate (and read!). Ok, it may have more real estate than most :) but to me the principle still holds true...

I was always dreaming about a Reverso Duoface. Yesterday I came across the upcoming new models next year that JLC will release to celebrate 85 years of the Reverso. And look what I found: :heart:

Image

I actually prefer this to the regular version, as it seems to be easier to read. However, I am not so sure about the dauphine hands. All in all, I think I'm in love with watches again :oops:.

I'm really hankering for one of these two right now which are achievable.

Tried this on today and really nice in the metal. The hands and indices are really well defined and finished and reflect the light brilliantly, the dial is the deepest gloss lacquered black.

^^^ I just looked at the Hodinkee review from earlier this year. That's a nice looking watch available in four sizes and several colours. I'm surprised I hadn't seen one earlier...
