The Glycine Incursore II model (ref. 3901) is that with the manually wound movement, and the III (ref. 3900) has the automatic. Each comes in a 44mm wide steel case (100 meters water resistant) with an available metal bracelet or thick leather strap. Each watch has a few dial options. A "standard" minimalistic model with a mix of Arabic and baton hour markers, and a "California dial" that mixes Roman and Arabic numerals. Which do you prefer? Note the different hands on each.
Sitting comfortably on the wrist, the watch is attached to a hand-made leather strap. Itay Noy literally acquires them leather themselves to make to the strap by hand. The straps are brown on the outside and black on the inside. The also have an interesting "indentation" in the leather to give it a more interesting look. The strap has a butterfly deployment clasp.

Jean Dunand Shabaka Watch Hands-On
Jaeger-LeCoultre has two special decoration departments. One is for engraving and another is for enameling. If you are interested in super detailed tiny artwork then enameling is for you. In-house artists create perfect paintings under microscopes that are oven-tempered to be permanent. They are gorgeous and seemingly impossible. Much of these and the engraving work is applied to Reverso watches. Many of the Reverso models have solid casebacks that can be flipped over. These surfaces are prime real estate for artistic customization. If you have the means, gets yourself a Reverso watch with a bespoke painting on it. you won't be dissappointed.
Like the originals they have plexiglass crystals, 100 meters of water resistance, and a cool black and faded yellow look to the dials. The straps on the new models are meant to be reminiscent of the woven fabric straps of the originals. Today they are done in a textured black leather.
One this I don't get is the Seastar "1000" name. The case is water resistant to 300 meters not 1000. At least when you have a numerical value attached to the same of a dive watch you assume it related to the depth rating. In this instance that isn't the case and it is confusing. It would just be the Seastar Chronograph or something like that.
