Introduction

Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox Speedbeat E875 from 1972 in 18K gold! Aesthetically pleasing watch with a high frequency movement beating inside. Champagne dial with well-balanced lay-out, featuring a date function at the 3 o'clock and the JLC logo we find on the opposite side instead of at the top of the dial. Furthermore the contrast between the dial and black lacquered hands-set plus index is very strong. Exceptionally well kept piece with the text on case-back still clearly visible, case and lugs are very strong. It is supplied with a black croc strap and comes with its original 18K yellow gold JLC vintage buckle.

Description

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!
