LeCoultre Memovox 10K Gold Filled Case

LeCoultre Memovox 10K Gold Filled Case

SKU: VWS-1640

Here is a wonderful, all original LeCoultre Memovox from 1964. The silver sunburst dial is in very fine condition, with an outer chapter ring and an inner alarm dial. The inner dial rotates to set the alarm time with a golden triangle. The chapter ring continues the sunburst pattern of the inner dial, with a golden LeCoultre logo at 12 o’clock and golden wedge shaped hour markers. There is some discoloration at the dial center and along the outer edge of the inner dial. The golden dauphine hands are in very fine condition.

 

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 10k gold filled case with the original crowns and slim straight lugs is fine condition, showing some overall wear, perhaps most pronounced a tiny dent at around 1 o’clock and a scratch at around 11 o’clock. The 10k gold filled case back is in fine condition apart from one notable scratch.

 

The watch comes on an after market leather strap 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 February 2022 and comes with a 12 month warranty on its proper mechanical functioning.

 

The Memovox is iconic for both its looks and its function and this one is a wonderful testament to that. It is very fun to watch people’s expressions when the alarm goes off and this is a true conversation starter!

 

 

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.
