Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox Black
"A legendary alarm watch from the Vallé de Joux with a noble black dial"
RRRRRRRR-RING! The Memovox’s alarm sounds like the ringing of an old telephone. The volume isn’t earsplitting on the wrist, where it unobtrusively reminds its wearer of an upcoming appointment. But when this watch is placed on a bedside table, the tabletop becomes an additional resonating body and the alarm rings loudly enough to summon even the most somnolent sleepyhead from dreamland. An alarm ranks among the most practical horological complications. And the Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox, along with the Vulcain Cricket, is one of the best-known models with this audible feature. With a name that can be translated as “the voice of memory,” the Memovox first rang in 1950. The collection has undergone numerous expansions over the years. For example, a model with time zones printed on its dial debuted in 1958, followed by a variation that reminded its owner to grab a few quarters and run out to feed the parking meter.
In the heart of the Vallée de Joux in the Swiss Jura, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Manufacture is constantly working to develop its creativity and inventiveness - and has been doing so since 1833. Since its foundation, the Maison has created more than 1200 calibres that today enjoy a unique reputation in the watchmaking industry. Its legendary collections, such as the Reverso, which emerged from the Art Deco movement in 1931, the Master, with its classic and refined masculine lines, or even the Atmos, the pendulum clock with an almost eternal movement, are the foundation of the Manufacture's pride and the satisfaction of its loyal customers.
