The Memovox is one of the more distinctive models that Jaeger LeCoultre came up with and it first hit the market in the 1950s. With its two crowns stainless steel case construction, it has endured to this day and has permeated to other models, including the diving Polaris watch.
This example is a rarer and more desirable jumbo version and sized at 37mm it has great presence on the wrist. It has a clean two tone dial layout with a grained finish on the outer and a sunburst inner circle. The inside of the dial is operated by the top crown to set the alarm and the arrow pointer indicates what time the alarm will go off. The top crown also serves as a winding mechanism for the alarm while all of the basic time setting and winding is down with the bottom crown.
The sound of a mechanical alarm is seriously cool and personifies this hobby of vintage watch collecting we all love. With a Madmen-Esque charm to it, it is a great dress watch that will set you apart from the usual stuff you see.
