Thanks for sharing your impressions! Do you travel much to take advantage of the hometime function? -MW

I make something in the neighborhood of 10 trips a year, most of which are abroad.

And since home isn't where my permanent residence is, i always keep the hometime to Beijing.

Very nice first post and great pictures.

It is always interesting to read owners opinion on a watch which is their trustful companion. A comment or two, if you allow me: 4 secs per day is excellent and much better than the COSC requirements. ( - 4 + 6 per day, if I remember correctly ). About th...

I was really just nit-picking and thinking of ways it could be "better", but I agree that for the pricepoint and purpose, the finishing is adequate. In terms of the consistent +4 seconds, i'm not very concerned since if it was driving me crazy (it's not) ... 

Very nice review

Thanks for the review. I thought it was very thoughtful and accurate. I would have to say that the only complaint with mine (minor) is that the luminous hands are not very bright and unreadable in even the blackest of nights.

Good point

I didn't even know the hands were lumed until I shined a flashlight at it and saw the faint glow, it's effectively not lumed.

The verso side of this watch is amazing. It will keep my eyes glued to it...

...for a good part of the day if I had it on my wrist. I think this watch serves you well as you have to manage multiple timezones. And as a travel watch I think this is as low profile as it gets for a stainless steel watch. I came very close to buying th... 

One small correction...

 By: watchme : November 19th, 2011-10:17
I believe the summer/winter - day/night adjustment is 4mm x 2 (4mm on each side). I've always liked this watch, especially since the Autotractor is such a robust movement. In truth, I think I prefer the Grande Automatique, due to having a large date and a... 

Great read!

Thank you for sharing! I jumped on the Squadra when it was released. First the HT in SS and later the first LE RG version... The SS is long gone be I still enjoy the RG! ? Best Blomman...  

Thanks for sharing

How is the articulated rubber bracelet? (in terms of comfort compared to say the normal flat rubber or the bracelet) D

congrats on an oustanding reverso and thanks for the review

 By: georgeszaslavsky : November 27th, 2011-12:48
All I can say is congrats for having chosen a very nice version of the reverso which is functional and elegant. For me the movement is very clean and enoug helegant.
