Back in 2016, I had the good fortune to partake in JLC's 85th Anniversary of the Reverso in my region. And over the years, the idea of getting one has always laid in a box in a dark corner of my mind. Well, it took a long time but I have finally scratched that itch. And while I still cannot afford a Gyrotourbillon, I think it was that moment of trying on that watch that imprinted the Reverso in my psyche.
Of course, my tastes have also evolved over the years and I find myself more accepting of a wider variance of case shapes and sizes. I have come very close to purchasing a Master Ultra Thin in the past, but here we are... a Reverso Tribute in burgundy! Service and attention from JLC boutique is top notch, and if I'm honest.. also contributed to pulling the trigger.
