A truly stunning vintage 1970's Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox alarm wristwatch in solid stainless steel with sharp factory printed original silver dials featuring a "mystery" style inner alarm indicator disk and date aperture at 6 o'clock. This watch has an awesome presence on the wrist with its massive case measuring 38.5mm wide excluding the original signed crowns by 45.5mm lug tip to tip. While large and impressive, the overall impression is actually quite soft and stylish with its wide brush finish bezel and sharp silver and black dial.  It comes supplied with a 20mm NSA stainless steel bracelet and nicely matched grey blue leather strap.  To me this watch just screams 1970's Eames era chic in a way only JLC could design. Such a cool looking watch on the wrist with a complicated and beautifully crafted, in-house caliber 916 automatically wound alarm movement within, freshly serviced here at Meticulous and in excellent working condition with our full 1 year mechanical warranty.
