... reading that you are also fan of the Argentine strip and how this project was born.

Mafalda is very popular here -and it seems worldwide too- being a comic for adults with a lot of wisdom and fun which always brings smiles (or laugh) but also invites to meditation.

I congratulate you for this wonderful idea as well to Monsieur Parat for his art to render the character on the surface of the back of Reverso which depicts the thrill we watch fans feel when we get a new timepiece (regrettably Felipe showed it to Susanita and as it was expected she spoiled his thrill! Lol!)

Also very nice the detail of adding our Sun to the image. Not only visually balances the image itself but adds an additional charming and appropiate detail to the engraving.

I wish you´ll enjoy so much and in the best of health your new Very Special Reverso!!

Cheers from Buenos Aires!
Abel.

The icon of personalization, the Reverso

I have mentioned it many times: personalization is one of the favorite themes of today's customers. A watch brand must now be able to integrate into its collection variable aesthetic elements that adapt to the tastes and demands of these customers. Small ...  

Great fun ...

I also have a Tribute to Reverso 1931 that I had engraved with a personal milestone a few years ago: my wedding date and my wife’s initials. A lot of friends were shocked that I would engrave my new watch as they said it would be impossible to sell it off... 

One of the nicest posts in a long time, FX

Personality on such a dress watch is beautiful, I originally felt a little nostalgia with the image as I thought of Charlie Brown. Watch looks great and hopefully I can get one done to display.

A very nice tribute to the Reverso concept!

And what a good idea to have such a personalised item. Best, É. Ps: and the dial is stunning!
