Jaeger-LeCoultre: The Amvox, in any version, is no run-of-the-mill watch.

The V1 is wonderfully discreet and yet it's chime can be loud and clear. It's fun to set it off around unsuspecting people.

Horological Meandering: JLC and BM are cousins

For this to work in the Richemond group, the BM needs to be definitively less expensive. The Reverso then becomes the aspirational classic, in comparison to BM, for the newcomer customer. This is because the sales person will mention the JLC while selling the BM.

Jaeger-LeCoultre: Vox is the "voice"

While I think the Amvox 2 is quite a technical achievement, the Amvox 1 is the keeper of the alarm lineage, and the name.

Automotive: By 1994 the W124 chassis was mature and well-refined

No wonder we get so much from them. A few years back I sold my 1995 E300D to a lucky 17 year-old whose father apparently knew the value of these cars and no doubt encouraged him. I'm sure that boy was stylin' in High School with that big black Merc complete with sunroof! Why drive a Dodge Neon?

Jaeger-LeCoultre: I'm thinking, to the general watch populace, you bark "JLC!" they bark "Reverso!"

But the entire "vox" line runs long and deep....Memovox to Polaris to Amvox to Polaris. I am partial to vintage Polaris models and the first re-issue, but especially partial to the AMVOX 1, part of the Polaris lineage.

F.P. Journe: Even without sound it's quite entertaining to watch this video

Mr. de Hass is very animated. My desktop here at work doesn't have a loud speaker and all I can see are his body and facial movement.

Omega: You have chosen well.

I was at the Omega Boutique a couple weeks ago and tried this model on and was struck how beautiful it was, and wore very comfortably. No trigger pulling, i'm still waiting for a 50th Apollo 11 SS edition, and I just got a really nice Lange 1 moonphase, otherwise dollars would have been spent, blood

Omega: I could sense, early on, that photos will never truely reveal how sublime this release is

After seeing hundreds of photos now I am beginning to integrate a deeper picture. Sigh, still waiting for the call from my OB... Wear in good health.

Horological Meandering: Thanks for giving a heads-up to this article

This is really good stuff for us non-watchmakers. I was happy to see the JLC 877 represented- a driving force in getting my Panerai 190.
