Jaeger-LeCoultreThe watchmaking empire all started when Antoine LeCoultre created a machine to produce watch parts in the year 1833. After creating some very accurate measuring instruments in the following years LeCoultre teamed up with his son to build a place where they could put together all the expertise and instrument to build watches themselves. The first ‘Manufacture’ in the Vallee du Joux district was born!In 1903 the Parisian watchmaker Edmond Jaeger challenged Antoine LeCoultre’s grandson, who took over the company, to build a few calibers that Jaeger had invented. That worked out very well over the years and led to the founding of Jaeger-LeCoultre in 1937.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 of 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!
