    JLC Reverso Tribute Opinions

    Hey everyone! I'm thinking about picking this up this weekend (trading up from my Master Control Date). What do you guy's think? How does it look on my wrist?Name:  2016-10-21 18.16.53.jpg

    Looks great on your wrist, smart move imo . . .

    I think it looks great. Tribute wears a bit smaller than other Reverso Duos, but looks more classic than small in my view.
    The key issue with Reversos is not so much how they look, but how they feel on the wrist. Grande Reverso Duo Ultrathin is a few mm longer - looks more substantial on the wrist, but comfort wise felt very different than Tribute.

    PS. Can't tell if the stap is closed in your pics - if not, it makes it look smaller than reality as strap is loose. Let me guess - 6.5-7" wrist?

    Spot on Ender. I had the opportunity to see OP's Duoface (though not strap it on) and while I think the shorter length would help me, it's added thickness up from my ultra thin Reversos made it a no go, at least until I can buckle one on. I very reluctantly parted with the blue dialed Duoface a bit back because of the added height and it's wrist fit. That said, had I not had the ultra thins or if they were indeed too long, these dual faced Reversos would be just fine. If the lugs are more downward curved (as I just recently read elsewhere) perhaps that will be the factor that makes it acceptable, we'll see . . .

    Looks nice, I Love that watch but my issue is that it is a touch too small. Well if it was that size but thinner it would be great but that thickness it needs to be slightly longer, like similar lentpgth to the other Tributes

    The strap is closed, but was not sized, so it was loose. You're spot on with the wrist size.

    Should I go for it?

    Personally I think that size looks excellent on your wrist, from the photos anyway.

    Size looks perfect to me.
    The Master Control Date is a beautifully finished watch with an excellent design- hard to find fault with it except that like other similar watches they are somewhat lacking in 'character' . The Reverso has quite a bit of that.
    I think you would be well satisfied with the change.

    I say go for it. Buy it. Wear it. Reverse it. Enjoy it :)
    May be it's just me, but there is a very cool feeling from just reversing the face - and it is like having 2 watches for the price of one.
