We all know that Jaeger-LeCoultre have been manufacturing a lot of Memovox wrist watches since 1950. But did you know that up until the 1970’s JLC also made Pocket Memovox or Travel Alarms?
One good reason for waking up in the morning is to hear the alarm from one of these Pocket Memovox!
Shown here is the 11003/3 from 1970.
These Pocket Memovox came in many different shapes and colours, but what they all have in common is the they have manual Memovox Calibres inside.
These later 1970’s models had the Calibre 910 (no date) or Calibre 911 (date). Same movements used in Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox wrist watches.
Often plated with lacquer details like here, the 1103/1 gold plated, 11003/3 gold plated and lacquer.
Or like these square versions with blue lapis stone patter or brown tortoiseshell pattern.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre universe is both wide and deep – I will continue to present both well-know pieces and these more forgotten parts of the brands history.
So join me in my journey through “JLC space and time”!
