“Winter is coming”…? No, it’s already here! December, soon it will be Christmas and New Year…
Time to bring out something to keep us warm… How about a pair of Snowdrops?
The Jaeger-LeCoultre reference E 877 Memovox Snowdrop is to me, the peak of the Funky 70’s Memovox!
Funky, cool, good size – 43 mm, yes larger than the E 859 Polaris! But due to the case shape, it doesn’t look or feel as big as the more famous divers Memovox.
Proportions and balance of the case is spot on. I also get a feeling that the case is in a higher quality of stainless steel compared to other E 87n but I have no record of that to show, just a feeling…
One thing that is better than on the other E 87n is the crystal – instead of plexi it is hardened mineral glass. Yes, also the E 870 Polaris II have hardened mineral glass, but E 871 – E 876 have plexi.
But as always, it is hard to decide which version is the best of the E 877…
What would be your choice? The silver-white or the silver-blue?
The more clean dial with larger index or the one with the rays and thinner index?

And next time I give you a closer look on the special box that I found for the E 877 Snowdrop…!
