In my opinion, Jaeger-LeCoultre manufacture the best alarm function watch in the biz! In 1956 Jaeger-LeCoultre created the first automatic model equipped with an alarm knows as the Memovox. This year marks the 60th anniversary of this model. To honor and reinterpret this piece, Jaeger-Lecoultre have released the Master Memovox Blue Boutique Edition.No other watch brand can do fifties/sixties inspired art deco watches like Jaeger-LeCoultre. This NEW boutique edition has a 40mm stainless steel case. The dial has a phenomenal inner blue sunburst motif and an outside Opaline blue motif. Polished steel baton hands with SuperLuminova.
The movement is the Swiss automatic Jaeger-LeCoultre in-house caliber 956 with 23 jewels, 28,800 vph and a power reserve of 45 hours. It features an alarm complication. It’s fitted on a black Trieste calfskin strap with blue topstitching and a steel buckle.
Most watch brands that do alarm function watches are very cheap sounding like a hand buzzer. The Memovox is renowned for making a very high quality with a hammer hitting a gong which makes it a very functional and audible alarm function.
The NEW Master Memovox boutique edition takes it’s inspiration from the Snowdrop Memovox from the 1970’s. It’s incredibly handsome and debonair. There are only 500 pieces being produced for the world and will only be available exclusively at Jaeger-LeCoultre boutiques.
