TimeOut: When I was a kid, it was...

Jaeger-LeCoultre: THE - I repeat THE AMVOX 1 to get...

if you're really going to get any then THIS IS THE PIECE! Superb alarm resonance from the titanium case; 44mm. A real keeper, if you can find of the LE pieces. -Dean

Jaeger-LeCoultre: Love the dial, though not quite...

Jaeger-LeCoultre: All masterpieces, for sure! Correct me if I'm wrong...

Jaeger-LeCoultre: Master Date...

such a great piece and the forerunner up to the Master Moon. Even though the 5-link bracelet looks more in touch with modern times, the "rice grain" style of bracelet is MUCH more comfortable and doesn't show scratches nearly as easily. Congrats on a 25 year classic! -Dean

Horological Meandering: As Tissot begins to make them...

certified chronometers and with silicon balance, etc., it will be hard to argue that a 1995 Rolex would be better built. -Dean
