My is a Grande GMT, hers is my previous gold standard size Reverso. This one is fine for me but I've tried a Squadra, for example and can't pull it off. Seems way too big for me.

Another day, another Reverso try-on ...
Yesterday I posted photos of the sublime Reverso Tribute Moon on my thin wrist, and the consensus was that it was just too big. Nicolas wisely suggested that I consider the Duo, which I have now done. I love this model too, and it’s definitely more wearab...
but I was under the impression that the delightful Duo in your photo was the same basic watch as the one I tried on, but with a different color scheme. Is it actually smaller? And if so, is it still in production, or was it an LE?
Ah. I now see ...
... that the Tribute Duoface I tried on (in current production) is in fact quite a bit larger than the 85th Anniversary Tribute Duo that was released in 2016 ... and no longer appears to be in production. But I would love to hear I’m wrong about that!
Thanks Nicolas! I found it today ...
in an AD, after another AD told me that it was a limited edition and no longer for sale new, anywhere. I'm glad I have a choice of ADs. It's beautiful, and as you predicted, it fits perfectly. I may well buy it, though there's a wrinkle I will need to sor...

thanks -- agreed that it's beautiful, but
it's really too close a call on the sizing. I bought a Royal Oak Chrono eight years ago because it took my breath away, even though it didn't fit all that well with the integrated bracelet. I sold it earlier this year because I never wore it anymore; it w...
That is so true.
That's part of the reason why I took most of these photos in the mirror, to correct for the optical distortion of close-ups. I think this particular model is still too close of a call.
I think it looks just right.
Fits your wrist very well, and as some have said, it looks larger in photos, which means that in the metal, it would be just nice.
Thanks for the encouragement!
But given a choice between a size that kind of works, and a size that actually really works (the 85th anniversary Nicolas illustrates above), I should probably go with the latter.
I hear you, but ...
the finest oriental rugs come with a subtle flaw, if only to show that God alone is perfect. Also, this: : )
It’s me, Jon, from the other thread! Same wrist, wearing here the watch you pictured there.
