This is a beautiful example of the iconic Jaeger le Coultre Memovox dating from the late 1960s. The solid 18ct yellow gold case is in excellent condition with only the most minimal signs of wear.
The original Jaeger signed silver/steel dial is untouched and again in excellent condition. The applied gold hour batons and original gold hands along with the gold JL logo at the 12 create a stunning look. The very high grade Jaeger signed automatic bumper movement is again in excellent condition and was given a full service by SHWR on the 31st January 2019 (Stephen Hale are the UKs premier watchmaker). To complete this beautiful piece weve added a new black Hirsch alligator strap with a genuine solid 18ct gold Jaeger le Coultre buckle.
