Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox E855 Automatic Alarm 18K Gold Jumbo Size

Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox E855 Automatic Alarm 18K Gold Jumbo Size

SKU: VWS-1660

Here is a stunning all original LeCoultre Memovox E855 from 1963 in a jumbo size. The silver dial is in near mint condition, with a separate chapter ring and inner dial. The chapter ring has a golden JLC logo at 12 o’clock and faceted golden hour markers with lume dots at the inner ends, double markers at 3 and 6 o’clock. The inner radially brushed silver dial is in excellent condition, with a black triangle showing the alarm position. It rotates to accurately set the alarm. The golden 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 solid 18k gold case with the original crowns and long, curved lugs is in very fine condition, with light overall wear on both the face and sides. The stainless steel case back is in fine condition with some overall wear.

 

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

 

Inside the watch, LeCoultre’s high grade P815 bumper automatic 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.

 

This is one of the finest E855’s we seen for a long time. This a watch you will love to wear, and seeing people’s faces when the alarm goes off is priceless. The bumper automatic tops this off to make for something very special to have on your wrist.

 

 

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.
