One of the classic Memovox and the very first Memovox Automatic with the Date complication is the Jaeger-LeCoultre E 855 with the calibre 825 inside.
If my understanding is correct, not only the first Memovox, but also the very first wrist watch ever to have this combination of complications: Alarm – Automatic – Date!
The perfect watch for the man with a busy schedule! In a glance you know which date and what time it is. And with a buzz you get reminded of your next appointment!
When collecting documents, it is always a lot of fun comparing the same document printed in different languages…
Often you can spot local differences or adjustments. Like in this Memovox catalogue from 1970 –
Easy to operate – just T.W.O crowns, A and B.
Just set the time for you next appointment – and make sure not to mix up Jane, Evelyne and Isabella!
But if you do… Luckily you already have a plane booked for New York…
Yes, the Memovox Automatic Date can be a lifesaver!
Stay tuned for more useful watches!
