    Nice pick up PG. I always liked the original Memovox design and thought JLC did a pretty good job deriving it into the Amvox series.

    I agree.. while I had posted this 6 months ago, I have an original Memovox that I love and will repost it

    Very nice drducky & gdl203.

    Im dreaming of a vintade Polaris, but they are hard to come by.
    There are al sorts of strange JLC memovoxes floating around. Branded, parking etc. LOL and a LOTT of mismatch and "reconfiguring".

    Too may "common" brands here, so here is my new addition to spice up the IWC dominance... Jaquet Droz sports watch... Gaz
    While I agree with you there and REALY like some of the JD pices ... Dont think the sports series is JD's strong suit.

    I like it because its something very different from the pieces in my collection. The detailing on the case work is impressive as it the finish of the Fredrick Piquet movement.

    Nice one Phat. I parted with mine about 12 months ago as I had to trim the herd, so to speak.

    A great watch and was sad to see it go but sacrifices had to be made. I recall that I was the first to receive this watch in Australia, even before any Aston Martin owners. Its gone to good home and I know the new owner is enjoying it.

    The alarm gong against the titanium case offers such a crisp sound, which is much better than steel and even gold. The overall design is an excellent modern intepretation of the original Memovox dive alarm watch. The new 1968 limited edition Memovox is a stunning piece and worth a look into if you like the AMVox.

    Enjoy the alarm.

    Nice collection. Maybe a dressier watch should be next.

    Love the Sinn dial! Crappy valjoux movement though.
    - that crappy Val movement is tried & tested & served veru well for the industry (even in it's basic format)..

    Looking at it on your wrist though, I won't point out the obvious but... well you know... maybe the watch is not too big and maybe you need to do something about that puny wrist.
    - I know I have narrow wrists (& ankles -no cankles here), but the angle of the pic has exaggerated the proportions. Heck I even wear a IWC BP!

    I agree.. while I had posted this 6 months ago, I have an original Memovox that I love and will repost it
    - schweet

    Very nice ducky - here is mine
    - another winner

    OK, thought I would as here. Sounds silly, but I can not figure out an answer/solution.

    I have 4 watches that I would like to regularly wear. But I only wear one often because the rest are uncomfortable. The one that is comfortable is a titanium bracelet Tissot that fits somewhat loose at the bottom of my wrist, with enough room to spare so my wrist is not pinched when it bends. The other watches that have leather or a rubber strap seem rigid and either dig into the top of my hand when worn loose or I have to wear very tight, very high on the wrist.

    Is there a secret? Again, it seems silly, but I am 0/3 with bracelets that are not metal.

    I have a leather strapped Skagen (http://www.skagen.com/item/331XLSL1.fx), a leather strapped Tissot (like the leather strapped ones here http://www.tissot.ch/products/#produ...ces,0005,0045), a rubber strapped Seiko diver (http://www.chronograph.com/store/cat...ts/SKX009K.jpg)

    Here is my current favourite that gets worn pretty much every day. I posted this watch... but a different picture a few months ago. I plan to make another watch purchase in the next month... so hopefully this one will get a little rest every now and again[​IMG]

    Nomos finally got round to making the watch I've been hoping for ever since the original Club was released.
