    I think both Reverso 1931 ( black dial ) and Saxonia ( white gold ) are very nice looking watches, but for me the look and comfort of the Saxonia slightly betters the Reverso, however for versatility the Reverso easily wins, imo.

    I’d like to thank Jacob for sending me his JLC Alligator strap he had for his Reverso, but didn’t use.

    My order for the Reverso 1931 was delivered today, and I love it. Not only is it very nice looking, imo, it’s also extremely comfortable, and although it’s 8 years old it looks brand new. The only slight niggle I have, is with it being used the previous owner(s) had the flip side engraved seen in the photo which I’m not that keen of, other than that I couldn’t be happier. For now I’m going to enjoy the JLC as is, plus I don’t have to look at the flip side, but I’m going to enquire via the place where I bought it, on whether that could be done in the photo below which allows the movement to be seen. Another thing I like about this Reverso, is it looks very different to the Saxonia, apart from it having a black alligator strap and similar coloured metal. Just 4 more photos. 🙂

    For the watch, but I’ve seen a few arguments in the amateur game, and on one occasion this guy head butted someone on the nose.

    Forgot to mention, most here probably don’t know who this is, but Ronnie O’sullIvan is regarded as the best snooker player ever, and he wears a Reverso while playing that game, and has done so for sometime. Yes he’s right-handed and wears the JLC on his left, but he also plays a lot of shots left-handed.

    I no longer have that Grand Seiko Sam, I used it in part exchange for that Rolex, I’ll be wearing that Reverso 1931 playing those two games. I was told by the place I’m getting that JLC it’d be ok to do so, plus that Reverso 1931 was originally a sports watch used while playing Polo in India.

    I have to admit Sam I’ve changed from/to a few different watches over the last few years, but once I have that Reverso I won’t be selling it or the Saxonia for any other watches. When needed I’ll be having both serviced, and probably new Alligator straps, but I’m keeping them both.🙂

    Although I was reasonably happy with the Oyster Perpetual 39mm, I’ve always liked Jaeger-LeCoultre and in particular their Reverso, I also prefer manual wind to automatic. Well the place where I got both that Rolex and Saxonia from had a Reverso 1931 2788570 available, and I’m happy to say I’m in the process of buying that beautiful ( imo ) looking watch. I did have to use that Rolex as part exchange but I’m ok with that. Hopefully I should have it within the next few days, but here’s a photo of that Reverso.

    Shave-Case: The official HC hair removal thread.

    Decided to ask my local metal engineer if he’d do stainless steel handles to my liking for my two safety razors and the Gillette fusion, which he did. So because I enjoy posting photos, here’s how they look. 🙂 Although both safety razors look alike, one handle is thicker than the other and the head on one is higher for a closer shave.

    I hope you get a Saxonia Reks, because it is ( imo ) a beautiful watch. ‘The only downside is I won’t risk wearing it while doing anything active, but that’s the main reason I got the Oyster Perpetual. Another great thing about the Saxonia, ( which could also be a problem ) is it’s extremely comfortable, in fact so comfortable a lot of the time I can’t feel it on, Anyway if/when you get one Reks please post some photos.

    Went through to my local Rolex dealer to have a look at a Cellini 50509 Rhodiun dial they’d just got in, and took with me my Oyster Perpetual and Saxonia because one of the guys that works there wanted to have a look, mainly the Saxonia but John was interested in how my OP looked with the dark grey alligator strap. The Cellini with the Rhodium dial is very nice imo, but it’s a light Rhodium whereas my OP dial is dark Rhodium which I prefer, so I’ll just wait to see if Rolex do a Cellini 50509 with a dark Rhodium dial. Not so good photo of the three together. Couldn’t show the strap and watch face better on my OP because of the deployant buckle.

    Any thoughts here on an Omega deployant clasp 094521813.

    Didn’t know this, but apparently because the alligator strap I had made for my OP is for a deployant buckle, a pin buckle can’t be used without weakening part of the strap. So it looks like that deployant buckle is saying where it is, I’m ok with that though because while not as comfortable as my Saxonia, I still find that deployant/strap more comfortable than the Rolex bracelet.

    Not sure what the proper technique is, but I’m ever so gentle when putting on and removing my saxonia, so I’ll do the same when I have that pin buckle on my OP. I can also store both watches in the ALS box which I quite like the thought of. Now as I’ve previously mentioned, I’m wearing the OP a lot more than the Saxonia, but that’s only because it’s automatic, so think I’ll get a Orbita Siena watchwinder and start wearing that Saxonia a lot more.

    While I really like that alligator strap on my OP, I’m not so keen on how the deployant buckle feels. So I’ve just ordered that buckle in the photos. Yes a buckle is going to put more stress on the strap with the bending than a deployant, but I’m ok with that.
