A long love story, but still not mine: L.U.C Louis Ulysse The Tribute.

A tad big, but with these short lugs, you still can wear it on a 7''' wrist. 

A pocket watch....

And a wrist watch at the same time.




Nice piece and one I didn't know till now.

Looks like a porcelain dial, perhaps.  Whatever, it is a looker.  

What year is this one from?

Thanks for posting these fine photos!


Lacquer... I made the same confusion when I saw it. [nt]

Yes, it was a very appealing watch with an interesting concept. [nt]

I fell in love when I first saw it when it was introduced, however quickly lost interest upon learning its sheer size (nearly 50mm)!
I personally think they made a wrong attempt of this pocketwatch/wristwatch hybrid novelty by giving more credence to the pocketwatch-side. People nowadays are wearing wristwatches way more often than a pocketwatch (actually I can not remember when I last saw anyone wearing a pocketwatch). Plus if going by that dial design it will have to be a dress watch - meaning 41/42mm should be the maximum (personal preference is 39mm).
Let's just say, it would have been a fun hybrid watch at 41mm and the owner could really dress up one day and wear it as a pocketwatch - no one would scoff at a 41mm pocketwatch. But to wear a 49mm wristwatch in a suit.........
Shame. Or I guess, great news for me, as I have one less watch on my want list...

48 mm, indeed. I would love to see a smaller one, but I guess the movement size doesn't allow a much smaller case. [nt]
