So you don't like a small movement in a large case?

Eat this!





JLC Grande Reverso 101, reference 300.64.30. According to JLC's official website:

"A dream-like universe surrounds the smallest mechanical movement in the world. Illuminated by the fire of the stones, Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 101 floats freely at the heart of the largest Reverso case in a fairytale landscape of snow-set diamonds."

Of course the XGT is no longer the largest Reverso case. It has been replaced by Squadra.

I can't find a better picture. But it looked stunning in JLC's 2006/2007 catelog. My question is, how many ladies can wear a watch this big and presumably heavy (it is in platinum).

Is it just for ladies? Perhaps the only watch with a 101 a man can wear?

Hi,

I wonder why they don't make one without diamonds?

It could be quite nice.

Cheers

I know why: It's because most men with enough money to buy such an indulgence are too old and don't have good enough eyesight to read it! :>))

Yes. But that's Panerai

I have not heard or seen any woman wearing an XGT sized Reverso yet. Not that it means anything. Even with Panerai, I see most of them wearing 40mm versions instead of 44mm.
