For sale, a super rare, Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox Snowdrop, reference e877. Steel. Diameter 43mm. Automatic movement.
The Memovox was first introduced by Jaeger leCoultre in 1950/51. The two separate crowns allowed you to manually wind and set the alarm and timekeeping parts of the movement separately.
Symbolizing the planned efficiency of the post-war period, the Memovox literally meaning voice of memory quickly became the watch of excellence for men. Its striking mechanism gave a pleasant accent to the schedule of daily life: waking up, appointments, train timetables or parking meters.
The watch is in super condition given the age and completely original. Normal marks of usage on the case and the glass. The paint on the dial has faded at places but still have amazing patina. Tritium dial and hands. Never changed, when exposed to light they give equal light. Very rare black dial.
