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 wearable than the Moon, but I need to solicit advice again on whether it is also too big for my wrist. Here are some shots:
Part of my ambivalence comes from the fact that I tried on the still smaller Tribute Small Seconds last summer. There’s no risk that that one is too large, but it struck me as potentially too *small* and of course it lacks the charming duo feature, which is the main thing I find interesting about this watch. This group’s thoughts on this admittedly first-world problem will be most appreciated!
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?
... 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!
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 sort out. Although this is a very reputable AD, the watch has unmistakable scratches on the bezel, and the pivoting between the main and secondary dial displays is uncannily more frictionless than on the other watches in their display. They insist it is a new watch that they have owned for the past year. I don't think it's a pre-owned watch, but I may need an explanation, or a discount, or both ...
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 was too big. Don't want to make that mistake again.
