1960s Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox Alarm (Ref. E855) 10k Gold Filled
This LeCoultre Memovox ref. E855 is one of the most desirable alarm references produced from LeCoultre from the 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 cal. 825 automatic bumper movement.
The ref. E855 features an excellent 10k gold-filled 37.5mm case, which is oversized for the 1960s era of its creation. The case sits nicely on the wrist and has a classic and timeless appearance while remaining 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!
