As witnessed by the topic matter, I finally purchased a REAL dresswatch, a preloved 2009 JLC Master Control:
As you can probably gather from my signature, I have a strong preference for watches with complications (especially chronographs) and 'busy' watches, but I followed up on my fellow WIS' advice to opt for a simple, clean piece as a dresswatch.
Powered by an in-house JLC movement (899) and featuring a transparent case back, it's a very nice piece imho, and definitely a keeper!
Will post better pics soon (will make a JLC family photo as soon as my MC Chronograph gets back from JLC service center).
Thanks for looking.
