Introduction

The sixties was a great era for JLC and the Memovox is the proof of it. This one is preserved in utmost condition. Original crowns, super clean dial, crisp movement and strapped to a black alligator bracelet.Jaeger LeCoultre MemovoxEverybody hates their alarmclocks in the morning but luckily, since 1950, there is one alarm that isn’t meant to rob you from your necessary sleep. The Memovox of Jaeger-LeCoultre uses a fine striking mechanism to, for example, remind you about an appointment.  The name Memovox means “the voice of memory” and this voice is a pleasant sound to the schedule of daily life. At that time it was a manual winding watch, five years later in 1955, they made an automatic version of the Memovox; which resulted in the first automatic alarm watch ever built!
