I visted my local JLC AD yesterday to look at candidate dress watches. I was in luck in that they had both stainless steel Master Control models that I was interested in. I looked at the both the Grande Master Ultra Thin (GMUT) and the Reserve de Marche (RDM).


I loved the look of the GMUT from its photos, but on my wrist the 40 mm diameter (mostly face with a fine bezel) was just too large. The RDM on the other hand at 37 mm was more appropriate for my wrist. Mind you, I wear sports watches up to 44 mm but for a dress watch, where the GMUT seemed out of balance, the RDM seemed proportionate.


This is the value of seeing something hands on before purchasing a watch. In any case, the EDM came home with me. I like its asymmetry, its understated timelessness of the face design. This is my first JLC. I have attached some photos.
