1970s Jaeger-Lecoultre Memovox “Speed Beat” in 18kt gold
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. As passionate advice, never miss an appointment with the absolute classic that is the Memovox.
Launched in 1950, it is one of the flagship Jaeger-LeCoultre models, which has been produced and reissued ever since. It is in 1956 that will come out the automatic version that became the first automatic watch with alarm.
If I’m telling you 28 800 pulsations per hour, a JLC logo at 9 o’clock, do you find out? Of course a very coveted Memovox “Speed Beat”, the first automatic Memovox featuring a rotor movement. This version in 18 karat gold bears the reference 875.21 and is not so common, especially in such mint condition. We like its bold golden case, along with the matching dial, making the whole thing a watch for true connoisseurs.
