1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I have seen a few, but have just been waiting until I can check them all out at one time :). It would be a lot better of a week if I was the heir to an oil fortune, or something else of that ilk! And those Linde Werdelin's that you posted are quite interesting, would be interesting to research at the very least!

    And that Reverso may be just about perfect.

    Werdelin's are a bit too strange for me.

    I am so glad to see that there is going to be a new RDM! I have been worried that they were planning on canceling the design for ages. As for the Master Control--maybe I am biased, but I kind of like the proportions of my MC 40mm over the new 39mm. For some reason I have always found part of the charm to the MC was the fact that the bezel was almost too large for the watch. It is hard to explain without actually seeing the watch, but it definitely makes it very unique and interesting to look at. It has a very slightly imbalanced look--almost purposefully imbalanced, if that makes any sense. On the other hand, the new hands are pretty sweet :).

    I am just glad that I am still going to be able to get the RDM in a handful of years!!! And thanks for that live shot, that makes it look so much better.

    interesting you mention it. that was exactly my first impression from your pictures. so i took a look at them once in a while and it's settling.

    understood, that i always liked it.

    Nice watches everyone. I wish I could afford some of high end watches but for now I have to stick with my Movado.

    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.
