1960s LeCoultre Memovox Alarm (Ref. 2817) Cal. 815

$ 2,550

This LeCoultre Memovox ref. 2817 is one of the most desirable alarm references produced from LeCoultre from the mid-1960s. The double-crown feature allows for winding and setting the time, as well as setting the alarm. The top crown sets the alarm complication of the timepiece. The alarm is crisp and noticeable which is a key feature of the self-winding caliber K815 bumper automatic movement.

This specific example with its oversized for the era 37mm case sits nicely on the wrist and is classic and timeless yet relevant by today's wristwatch sizing standards. This piece would make a great addition to an existing collection and be a great and classic timepiece as a stand-alone piece!
