Jaeger-LeCoultre: Always loved the Reverso Day/Date...

Patek Philippe: Here's what I think....

New, hobnail bezel in 39mm with new, stop-seconds movement. 6006G with blue dial (or, even better, 6006R with rose dial). 39mm replacement to 5296 with new movement. Dare I venture? 5976/1A (44mm). 5168A and 5168/1A Updated replacement to 5067. New, larger, rectangular Twenty-4, manual-wind. 5168G-0
