It's between Omega, Jaeger-LeCoultre, or IWC – I can't decide!
Omega Speedmaster 38 mm (ref. 324.30.38.40.06.001)
None; I don't buy into the grail/exit watch phenomenon
The moment I learned that watches were a lot more than just an accessory, I was hooked; I become enamored with the elegance of timekeeping. But there was one small hitch: most models were just too big for me to wear! I wasn't discouraged though, and in fact, the opposite happened: a passion for smaller watches with equally great inner workings blossomed. What really sealed the deal here was moving to Zürich, Switzerland, aka the home of horology, and meeting a man who shares my love of special timepieces, not to mention a couple of watches. In my articles, I look forward to introducing you to the often-overlooked world of watches under 40 mm. It's a place where you'll find a huge selection of exciting models for slimmer wrists.
