Thanks! the watch on MY wrist is a bit large.. my wrist is extremely small (6.25"). but it sits quite well and is amazingly easy to read. I would place its craftmanship easily on par with Rolex and even my older Vacheron. The movement never loses more than 1 second daily.

The watch is extremely comfortable to wear, yes. I am not sure if it's too big on my wrist, but I wear it nonetheless. I didn't try it on before I bought it (years ago). I traded a Parmigiani Kalpa straight-up for it.. the Parmgigiani was wonderful, but cumbersome, heavy, a bit hard to read and its movement didn't stay wound nearly as long as even my Air King, for example. The Reverso is so simple, iconic, classy, dressy, and even casual. I purposely chose this reverso over the 1931 tribute because I thought the 1931 would be way too large on my wrist. I like its simplicity, don't you? I also have come to love the manual winding. I don't need an automatic movement. I rather enjoy winding the Reverso throughout the day... it's quite smooth.

I have the paperwork locked up, but recall this being the Grande Reverso edition from 2009ish.

There's something about the REverso.. I prefer mine even over the 1931 tributes.. it's just quite easy to read and it flies under the radar. I've never once had a person recognize what it is, either, which is nice. You don't see them out often.

What I wish was Jaeger would release a duo in the same exact faces, but different colors. In other words, instead of a solid caseback/window into the movement, it would be great if one side were white, the other black.. but identical.

I donít Know the answer to this one for sure, but the dealer from whom I bought my watch told me the tribute is larger slightly by half millimeter

Since the Tribute was mentioned

I thought would post some pictures of my TT 1931. The watch is minimalist where less is more. It is actually my go to travel watch. I wear it on the Casa Fagliano strap which is so soft the leather is like butter, super comfy. It has some hairline scratches but par for the course. It also is versatile in that it dresses up nicely and can be worn equally with super casual attire.

Love Reverso's almost pulled the trigger on one once. Definitely on my short list.
