Can I take the temperature of the forum on the JLC Memovox?
I know it gets brought up from time to time, but more recently when talking about the heritage of a specific design/complication, it seems to fit into that discussion with a history that goes back a fair amount more than the rest of the Master Control line (if I've done my reading correctly).
Does this make it any more or less desirable..
Is the alarm an annoyance or any less/more obtrusive than any other complication?
Still think I'm leaning Reverso when the time comes.. But still open minded.
Mimo, have you tried on the Rads? They sit very differently than the Luminors, and I kinda dig it.
CC: My unreliable and ill-informed opinion is that it's cool. A mechanical alarm these days strikes me (no pun intended!) as a delightful anachronism. Like you said, the "Memovox" has been around for decades in a very similar style, and I think it's distinctive and has integrity. I saw one in the local dealer the other day. I dig it. Like a poor man's minute repeater!
Frilly, you really don't know about my taste in movies..haha. And that's...er...not very me! Man, they're really doing a lot of good placement for their target audience, aren't they?! I'm still drawn to the base Luminor....although the other day I saw a platinum Radiomir and it's haunted me!
