1970s Jaeger-Lecoultre Memovox 875.42 blue
The history of Jaeger-Lecoultre dates back to 1833, in the heart of the Vallée de Joux. During this period, the company has been at the origin of numerous timepieces and great horological achievements, such as the Reverso, the Memovox and the Geomatic. But Jaeger-Lecoultre was known at the time as a great watch manufacturer, always at the forefront of technology and ready to take up all the challenges linked to the realization of movements and concepts. Thanks to this know-how, the Manufacture was the most judicious choice for the great houses, Audemars, Vacheron Constantin…
Do you find out if I’m telling you 28 800 pulsations per hour, a JL logo at 9 o’clock? Of course a very coveted piece by Jaeger-LeCoultre, the Memovox 875.42, the first automatic Memovox featuring a rotor movement.
Easily recognizable by the JLC logo location, this gorgeous version is run by the 916 movement and has a subtle two-tone based on a magnificent blue ocean. Usually hard to find in good condition, this timepiece is perfectly preserved well balanced and all original. Like a New Old Stock, the watch has a pure 70’s look thanks to its batons silver indexes, and hands.
