Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox E850

Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox E850

SKU: VWS-1663

Here is a fabulous and rare, all original Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox from 1959. The two tone dial is in very fine condition with few marks of its age. The outer silver chapter ring shows the hours with Arabic numerals at 6 and 12 and steel bar markers in between with lume dots at the inner ends. The radially brushed silver inner dial rotates to set the alarm, with a lume filled triangle showing what time the alarm is set for. The dauphine hands are in fine condition with the original lume intact.


The alarm is set with the top crown. Winding the spring for the alarm is done by rotating the crown while fully depressed. By pulling the crown out one can rotate the inner dial to set the arrow at the desired alarm time. When the set time is reached the alarm buzzes loudly for about 15-20 seconds when fully wound. When the crown is in the outer position the alarm does not ring.


The watch comes on an after market leather strap of good quality.


The stainless steel case with the original crowns and long, heavy lugs is in fine condition, with light wear throughout, perhaps most noticeable a few shallow scratches at the top of the bezel. The stainless steel case back is in fine condition with light overall wear.


The watch comes on time-period correct stretch metal bracelet of good quality.


Inside the watch, LeCoultre’s high grade K814 movement beats strongly and accurately to within about +12 seconds per day. The watch was fully serviced in March 2022 and comes with a 12 month warranty on its proper mechanical functioning.


The Memovox is one of the most iconic watches in history, and this version looks fantastic on the wrist with its wonderful dial. This is a watch that goes well with both formal and more casual wear and it’s a watch that is not only a great collector’s watch, it’s also an investment that will grow in value over the years.



Our watches are delivered in a luxury wooden watch box, fully serviced with a 12 month warranty that covers the mechanical functioning of the watch under normal use. We offer 14 days full return rights and are very proud of our reputation for outstanding customer satisfaction.
