Jaeger-LeCoultre 3165 and 3166 Pocket Memovox

Posted by

Any real Jaeger-LeCoultre collector knows the references 3160 and 3161 – the Memovox International and the Memovox Parking from the 125 Years Jubilé Collection!

But how many of you know the references 3165 and 3166? Most collectors don’t.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre 3165 and 3166 are a pair of Pocket Memovox with leather pouch.

The first one, the 3165 have a foot for upright position on a table.

Brass case, 36 mm x 39 mm, not including the foot (42 mm x 12.5 mm).

The hands and dial is the same type used in some wrist watch Memovox.

And not very surprising, so is the movement inside, the Calibre K 814. Even the case back looks similar to a wrist watch Memovox.

When you don’t use the 3165, the leather pouch is slides down to protect the Pocket Memovox.
