Introduction

A so-called "Speedbeat" (high frequency movement) Memovox. Very awesome to have this rare and stunning alarm wristwatch from 1971. It is hard to get your hands on an all-original Steel Memovox, let alone one that is executed with a blue dial! Any collectors out there? Or just someone with outstanding taste...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!
