SOLD JAEGER LECOULTRE 10K Gold  Filled Memovox Wrist Alarm Watch 1963

Sorry but I sold within 24 hours of being listed for sale

Gentlemans' 10 carat gold filled Memovox alarm watch from Jaeger LeCoultre, manufactured in c1963 in excellent overall condition. This timepiece is one of the later versions of the alarm watch, signed "Memovox" on the dial (not "Wrist Alarm" as with the earlier 1950's models). The case is larger than earlier models and the dial bears the Jaeger LeCoultre logo. This watch has an elegant classic case; the dial has a sweep seconds hand and an alarm arrow marker on the inner section. Please note that the watch has matching, original crowns signed "LeCoultre", very unusual to find on a watch of this age as most have had generic replacements fitted due to normal wear of the originals. Freshly oiled and adjusted by a master watchmaker the manual movement is running strongly and keeping time, with the alarm function working perfectly. It is signed in five places, on the dial, case, two crowns and movement.

Case: 10 carat gold filled in great condition, measuring approximately 35 mm across, excluding the matching signed crowns and 41 mm in overall length. The inside of the rear cover is marked "10K Gold Filled" and signed LeCoultre. The case shows the inevitable signs of careful use over the years but absolutely no signs of abuse, dents or scratches of any significance that I could see to point out to you. There is a faint presentation engraving on the rear of the case which could probably be polished out if desired.

Dial: in great condition, signed “LeCoultre Memovox Swiss” and bearing the Jaeger LeCoultre emblem. The dial has an inner minutes chapter and gold coloured batons marking the hours. The crystal is clean and clear.

Movement: crisp and clean high quality 17 jewel manual cal. K814 movement, signed "LeCoultre", running strongly and keeping time. It is wound and set by the lower crown and the alarm is wound and set by the upper crown. Both functions operate correctly. The serial number dates the watch to c1963.

Strap: fitted with a lightly used stitched and padded leather strap. Fitted to the watch it measures approximately 212 mm from buckle tip to last hole.
