1956 JAEGER-LECOULTRE MEMOVOX Vintage Mens Reveil Wrist Alarm - 10K Gold Filled

Striking Design - High Quality Movement - 1 Year Warranty

Today's offering showcases this LeCoultre Memovox with distinctive design. It is a classic LeCoultre alarm and has one of the seldom seen styles of U.S. market 10K gold-filled cases.

As mid-century approached and lifestyle paces moved faster and faster, top Swiss firms needed a way to enhance the experiences of their now frequently traveling top clients and to help him better organize and govern his most precious possession - his time. In response to this need the engineers at Jaeger-LeCoultre created an alarm wristwatch in 1951.

The watches featured a fully mechanical alarm system. To pull off this difficult task, Jaeger-LeCoultre equipped these watches with significant inner alarm gearing and even an additional stem and crown, making elements of second movement that worked seamlessly in conjunction with the normal timing portion.

The dial, which has a stronger retro look than many of these, is a vintage restoration. The case and dial give this watch a more distinctive look than many of the other U.S. market alarm models. Our watchmaker has freshly cleaned and oiled the movement and replaced the hammer with a fresher original LeCoultre part. The alarm now rings strong and clear.

Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, a new timing certificate, and a copy of the repair manual for this model detailing the movement parts and their operation.
