I am writing you to ask for opinions on three AMVOX2 chronographs, which I may have the good fortune of acquiring. To be clear, and unfortunately, I have only funds for one and must choose one out of the three. My options are the titanium versions (no PVD’d titanium) :
AMVOX2 Chronograph (ref 192T440)
AMVOX2 DBS (ref 192T450)
AMVOX2 Racing (ref 192T430)
I have tried on the AMVOX2 DBS and am very fond of it. It felt very concept-like with the open dial and translucent chronograph wheels. You got the sense that you could be a James Bond-like character as it was sporty yet sophisticated.
Unfortunately, I have not been able to try on the other versions of AMVOX2 and will probably never get a chance to try on the AMVOX2 Racing version given its rarity. However, at first glance and quite obviously, the AMVOX2 Chronograph is more conservative and a more suitable for dress-shirt attire; this is evident even on JLC’s advertisement which shows a man in a tuxedo wearing this version of the watch.
On the other spectrum, the AMVOX2 Racing is marketed as a pure-sports watch that may not be suitable for dress shirts.
If you will notice, I do care if the watch I select will pair well with a dress shirt. It matters as I am a young professional and need to wear more formal attire on a daily basis.
And so, here is my dilemma - I have finally sourced an AMVOX2 Racing, which is fairly difficult to find. Unfortunately, its rarity requires me to act somewhat promptly, which I admit can cloud one’s judgment. I will also not have the opportunity to purchase this piece in person (but do trust the seller). My concern with the AMVOX2 Racing is that this watch will be too casual as my everyday watch at the office. Am I wrong about this assumption?! PLEASE prove me wrong. And if you have the time, please post some WRIST SHOTS of your AMVOX2 with a cuffed shirt (to help convince me).
