Jaeger-LeCoultre: I cannot speak for others.

But for me it was its thickness that made me pass on it. Had it been 1-2mm thinner then maybe a Reverso Grande Date or Sun Moon would have been my first Reverso. The movement is especially nice in these. And yours with the stars on it stands out a even a little more. Best, Martin

Given the complexity of the movement, the effort involved and the small production numbers of the Cosmopolite I wou

Horological Meandering: This thread nicely highlights the difficulties of writing about pronounciation.

At least as long as phonetic script is not involved, that is. So let's not argue how one language or the other would try to capture the sound in written Latin letters.
