Very expensive unfortunately. Is there a more reasonably priced alternative that you would recommend?

Both of these might technically be aimed at women but for the size looks spot on

It's not bad, but I find it a bit "lazy" using the same crown guard on the three hander as the chrono...

Maybe not lazy, as they may not be identical, but it puts me off a little.

I hadn't noticed that until you pointed it out. Now I don't think it looks right on the 3 hander. Quickly gone back to ordering one of these not sure on size though

I've come to realize that I really like romantic complexity, and this Grande Reverso Sun Moon certainly delivers.

That is really nice, but unfortunately the 46mm case size strikes it off my want list.
