Shot of the day: Jaeger-LeCoultre 3161 Memovox Parking

Posted by

The reference 3161 Memovox Parking was a part of the Jaeger-LeCoultre 125 Years Jubilé Collection in 1958.

Together with the 3160 Memovox International and the E 168 Geophysic the three watches represented the men’s watches offered from the Jubilé Collection. Inside is the manual movement Calibre 814.

A classic looking Memovox with a quirk. On the alarm disk there is a countdown from 2 hours down to “P”. P as in Parking, to remind you when your parking would expire!

The P-symbol is unmistakable, still used all over the world, over sixty years later… Some things do not change…
