Up for sale is a freshly serviced, European market Jaeger LeCoultre Memovox from 1952. This particular model is interesting because, as detailed in Zaf Basha's book on vintage JLC, this appears to be one of the few European references that was pared with an American made case by the Wadsworth case contracting firm, "differing from a U.S. market case, the outside is marked with the letter "P" and the inside lacks the usual 'Cased and Timed by LeCoultre U.S.A.’."
The case condition is spectacular, and it retains much of its original finish and edge. It also comes with original (American market) LeCoultre crowns. I have replaced the acrylic crystal with a new one. The dial is original and gorgeous. It is exceedingly difficult to find an untouched dial for these early Memovoxes. The applied gold numerals, original lume indicators, and printed blue indexes and alarm pointer make for a beautiful combination.
I have serviced the movement and it runs accurately. The alarm works as it should.
I've also pared the watch up with an attractive honey coloured Hirsch strap that I think adds to the dressy character of this watch.
Your purchase comes with a presentational watch box.
