JAEGER LECOULTRE MEMOVOX BLACK GILT DIAL 2 CROWNS
Jaeger-LeCoultre has created some of the most beautiful and iconic watches of all time, and the Memovox is undoubtedly one of them. Jaeger-LeCoultre began producing the Memovox in the early 1950s, which featured a mechanical alarm and was advertised as a watch that “reminds, notifies and awakens”. The Memovox was produced in several versions, which differed in the material and design of the dials, the double crown has always been a typical feature of the Memovox. The crown for setting and winding the watch is located on the right side of the case at 4 o’clock, while the crown for the alarm function is located at 2 o’clock.
This is a beautiful example of the iconic Memovox automatic alarm watch by Jaeger-LeCoultre. The dial is in stunning condition, with a flawless gloss black dial with gilt minute track, alarm marker and text. The Applied logo at 12 o’clock and Dauphine hands are in steel, as are the hour markers. The elegance of the specimen is further emphasized by its beautiful original steel bracelet with JLC logo on the clasp. The case still maintains its original factory proportions. Exceptionally well preserved, the present Memovox is a great watch for any vintage collection.
