what's your take on the memovox?
So just for comparison, here is another [better] picture of the old Master Control. If you look at this one in reference to the new one, I notice the following things: first, the hands are different [the more I look at 'em, the more I love the new hands]; second, the bezel looks thinner; third, the numbers look larger. Maybe I am just going crazy, but it looks like a very different watch. I guess I find the combination of the larger bezel and the smaller numbers [this is unsubstantiated, but it certainly looks that way] to be part of the appeal, as I said before.
And Fritz, I personally love the Master Memovox. I think that it adds a very useful complication [at least for me], and does so in a way that keeps with JLC's illustrious history. With that said, I think that the larger bezel on it is not as much of a strength as it is on the Master Control. I think the Memovox may benefit from a slimmer bezel to make it a little less crowded looking. Also, the alarm function does add a little bit of bulk, and it looks like it may be a bit of a struggle to fit underneath a shirt cuff.
