I like them a lot, specifically the calendar. The new movements paired with competitive pricing make them definitely back in game. I too agree on having blue hands would be a nice touch, but it is possible that the hands might be readable given their surface properties. Need to see in person.

Esp the master calendar chrono. I believed that is a first ? Combining a calendar with a chronograph. Can see myself getting one

Has anyone seen a live pic of the chrono calendar? I’ve scoured all of IG and just see stock photos. Jaeger Afficionado has one on IG actually but that’s literally it.

I actually like the new straps, and they come with a new quick-change feature, so swapping it, say, with a black gator, would be easy.

I especially love the re-designed Master Control Calendar. In addition to the smart cosmetic changes, there's that new date-jump feature. (I posted this video on another thread, but worth repeating.) Very cool.

I agree. The new line is incredible IMO. Master control chronograph is one of the best watches I have seen in a while and will soon be on my wrist as soon as they fix their damn website!

People were concerned about readability with silver hands on a silver dial, but the IG post above makes it look like it will be very legible. Excited to see more pics, I believe theyíre meant to start shipping early June.

I think the chrono wouldíve been nicer without the single Arabic 12. I get itís necessary but ugh. Also the dash of red takes away from what couldíve been a nice vintage blue black colour scheme

The calendar Chrono looks interesting! When can we expect to see these in stores?

It had a chance to try on the Master Control Calendar today - it is sublime. I almost pulled the trigger but I'd like to see the regular one, the Memovox and the Chrono Calendar in person first.

My local AD said they expect the Chrono Calendar and memovox timer in October.

Looks like watchfinder have their hands on a memovox timer already:
