    Any JLC Reverso owners on these forums?

    I browsed the forums a bit, but for a brand and model that are so highly rated, it's seems rare to see posts about them...
    Why are Reversos seemingly getting so little love?

    Too dressy. That's what is stopping me from getting one as well - it won't get enough wrist time, given my lifestyle.

    Also, - likely due to the same reason - the forum tends to favour divers and other sporty watches.

    Because they are ugly and look like what the Apple Watch would look like in the Renaissance era.

    JLC makes some sexy stuff though but the Reverso isn't one of them IMO.

    Ironic, for what is essentially a sports watch...

    The JLC sub forum has a fair few reverso owners. Personally I love them!

    It's only a matter of time before I end up with a blue Duoface.

    To to answer your question, I think they appeal to a more limited range or collectors.

    As a keen sportsman (though not a polo player), and as a recent watch collector, I have to say the classic reverso is a bit of a grail watch for me, since it seems it can so easily be dressed up or dressed down.
    I do not quite understand the trend for divers, aviation chronographs, driver's watches, etc, for people who don't practice any of the activities their timepieces were designed for.

    They are not for me, I can't really explain it.
