Sunday Feast. An array of vintage and modern Jaeger Lecoultre Memovox.

Jul 26, 2020,00:20 AM
 

The manufacture sent me some hi resolution pictures of some of their vintage and modern Memovox. I thought it would be a pleasure to share them with you. 


Ref 3150: 



Ref 3161 Memovox Parking from 1958 but here I have a doubt about the case... 



Unknown to me reference of this Lecoultre Memovox World Time, from the mid 60's.



Deep Sea Alarm Ref E 857, with a funny detail you might spot quite easily:



Polaris from 1968: 






Ref E 877, from late 60's early 70's. With a curious blue alarm disc I only saw on that watch: 



And, to end in beauty, two Tributes which are dear to my and most probably our heart, 

The Tribute To Polaris 1968, released in 2008:



And the Tribute To Deep Sea Alarm, in 2011:



Of course, this is just a small selection. But I thought it would make a superb selection for a good Sunday. 

Enjoy,

Nicolas

One of my humble Parkings.. Best, hs ...  

The ref 3150 and E 857 are both stunning.

Thanks for the pictures of an interesting sample of Memovoxes. Do you know why the "7" is absent on the bezel of the e 857?

very unique, indeed

 
 By: Watcholic_id : July 26th, 2020-06:55
and the pose of that E857 is brilliant, it makes the watch even more handsome!

OMG, I freaking want them all!!

The gold to be dressy, the stainless steel to be sporty, the super bubbly case to be chic! Damn, those are freaking sexy ass pics, pardon my French. I am saving off some pictures are we speak!!! Wow!

Take for example the E 855. You can get one from 3 K to 10 K euros, depending on the dial version, condition and authenticity.

Here is my white one, in its first version with a dial which just came one year, the first year ( 1959 ). In its black dial configuration, quite charming, isn't it? ...  

That is possible, I could see

Myself doing that.

Yes, silver one. [nt]

 
 By: Ted-Lo : July 26th, 2020-08:17

Excellent choice. [nt]

πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€” I rather enjoy your line of reasoning today.

Dear Sire, thank you for this post, most excellent. Let me go out and continue my business plans. I owe my wife some business ideas, NOW!, with horological goals in mind, I am extra motivated to have other paths of revenue. Will need to extend to Paris, s... 

Here you are:

Please not that these are two protos... The difference is all about the dial. US on the left, Europe on the right. ...  

Who? Me? Nooo!!! [nt]
