Sorry in advance if this come across as too strong, but it is from a good place as JLC got me into this hobby years ago and I’ve been hoping for years that their Rip Van Winkle decision makers will finally wake up and realize that their core value proposition is mid-priced complications not just in round watches, but with the Reverso line.
It is not a good place to be when you are competing with Grand Seiko at the one end and Patek/VC at the other.
Come on JLC! You can do better than slap a trendy colored dial on yesterday’s Reverso.
What happened to your sense of adventure and daring with the Reverso Geographique and Reverso Perpetual, or even the Reverso Sun-Moon or 8-day GMT? Do we need to wait for the 100 year anniversary for that!
Wake up and give us what we’re looking for, not just a green watch at one end and the unobtanium, even if superlative Hybris Mechanica at the other.
I’m curious who you believe your target audience is. Dupes for endless dial variations?
