Hello Vintage Jaeger-LeCoultre Lovers,
Now when I have opened my “black book” for you, or actually my black books…
I better get the ball rolling because as you can imagine, I have a lot of material for this series…
And it will take some time to go thru…
You know my unconditional love for the Memovox!
My feelings also includes the Memovox Pocket Alarms.
Jaeger-LeCoultre, catalogue, 1971 (for a full manual, please see the reference post).
So, what separates a MPA from a Memovox or an Alarm clock?
Well, the MPA is meant to carry in your pocket, put on your nightstand or your desk in the office.
The movements used in MPA’s are the same as in the wrist watch Memovox while Alarm clocks often use “simpler” clock movements.
Cal K814, ca 1964-65.
In the MPA’s only manual movements were used, with or without date.
Cal 489, Cal 814, Cal 910 and Cal 911 (date).
Earliest trace of the MPA I found is from the mid 1950’s and they were in the JLC catalogue until mid 1970’s.
Jaeger-LeCoultre, ad, 1957.
Different way of placing the watch upright, this one has the same construction as the Ados.
Jaeger-LeCoultre, French catalogue, 1958.
Most of them are made in brass or gilt metal and with leather pouches.
The 11002 uses the leather cover as a foot support.
Jaeger-LeCoultre, catalogue, 1966 (for a full manual, please see the reference post).
Jaeger-LeCoultre, catalogue, 1967.
Note the alarm disk, the whole dial is the alarm disk!
Jaeger-LeCoultre, German catalogue, 1965.
This one stands erect, no folding foot support.
Jaeger-LeCoultre, French catalogue, early 1960’s.
LeCoultre, catalogue, mid 1960’s.
The most common foot support, folding bracket.
Jaeger-LeCoultre, Memovox catalogue, 1972.
