Jaeger le Coultre are one of the most famous names in watch and clock making with a history stretching back to 1833 and began making their own movements in the 1860’s. In the early 1900’s Jacques David Le Coultre joined forces with Edmond Jaeger to create Jaeger le Coultre. They are the most innovative of watchmakers starting with the famous ‘Reverso’ through to the Wrist Alarm and Memovox. Using the ‘bumper’ style automatic movement with one of the largest cases from the 1960’s (37mm excluding the crowns; the style was for 34/5mm watches) and the inner alarm dial they created a genuinely iconic piece.
This Memovox was made in the mid 1960’s and is beautifully original condition. The solid steel case is overall excellent condition with only the most minor signs of wear – please note the super rare ‘JL’ signed winding and alarm setting crowns. The original and untouched dial is again in amazing condition for its age. Originally off-white/steel it has aged to a lovely ivory cream colour. The applied steel hour batons and original steel dauphine hands create a stunning look. The very high grade Jaeger signed automatic movement is again in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. To complete this beautiful watch we’ve added a new, high quality, black Hirsch crocodile skin strap with steel Hirsch buckle. We’ve also included a genuine Jaeger period watch box. Whilst not original to the watch it is 100% genuine and from the 1960’s.
Watches from premier brands and in this condition are becoming increasingly difficult to find. In view of the high quality Swiss movement we will give a 12 month guarantee on it.
