The first Memovox models were hand wound, Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 489. Thanks to their exceptional quality Memovox Calibers continue their career today: representing exceptional longevity for the watchmaking world.
In fact, the Memovox inspires Jaeger-LeCoultres two most iconic watch lines made today, the Master Compressor and AMVOX. This is a great example of a 50's gold filled case LeCoultre Memovox with the rare world time disk. The upper crown winds the alarm and sets it, while the lower crown winds the movement and sets the time. The watch was just fully serviced by a watchmaker in NYC and is as good as new.
Dial, hands and case were not touched by the watchmaker, but the entire movement was overhauled, cleaned, oiled, and put back together. The watch is now working perfectly. This is a great sized watch, measuring in at 37mm. The alarm is really loud, and with the vibrations you feel on the wrist, it's probably better than your iPhone alarm!
