What's on my Wrist - Jaeger-LeCoultre
I've written about my Seagull 1963, but on my wrist today is something very different. This watch holds a lot of sentimental value for me, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Reserve de Marche. It was a wedding gift I received from my in-laws a little over two years ago, and was my first "real watch," something I spent months of time researching before settling on it.
Unfortunately, these days it just doesn't get much time on my wrist as I don't dress as tailored as I used to when I was wearing a shirt and tie to work, and I've been thinking real hard lately about passing it on so I can pick up more of a daily wearer - something like an Omega Speedmaster Professional (the "moon watch") or perhaps a Nomos joint.
Until then, still proud to wear this whenever I get the chance, especially now that jacket weather is starting to come around. Sophisticated but a little quirky with its offset and asymmetrical sub registers, I've caught myself having more than one Gollum moment staring at it. The scotch isn't bad either.
