1960s Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox Alarm (Ref. E855) 18K YG

$ 3,950

The LeCoultre Memovox ref. E855 is one of the most desirable alarm references produced from in 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 watch features an excellent 37mm 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!
