memovox

  1. Jaeger-LeCoultre
    I was curious why the master compressor memovox does not have one of the crown locks (the compression piece) for the crown at the 10 o'clock position. I think this is the crown that rotates the bezel. Wouldn't this allow water to get in the rest of the watch? Also, can anyone comment on how...

    I've been looking at purchasing either a master compressor geographic or compressor memovox for a while and am simply torn between the two. Part of me loves the slightly more simplistic styling of the face on the memovox, but I also find the geographic's 2nd time zone complication much more...

    Hello WUS, I thought I'd never sell this watch but you know how the story goes :-d This LeCoultre memovox is 34mm wide excluding the crowns. The case is in good shape. You can still see brushed finish on the side. The silver-tone dial is the original LeCoultre and not a refinished version...

    Q: As part of the Richemont group, it's common to see JLC supply movements to other watch "maisons" such as Vacheron, AP and Ralph Lauren. Looking to the future, will each maison continue to share know how and IP or will each build their own vertical manufacture chain with the view to ultimately...

    This is a tough one to let go. But here it is. I have acquired this watch a few months ago. Since then, I have bought another memovox and this one is seeing less time. It was serviced last month and keeping good time and alarm function works perfectly well. Comes with slightly used deBeer...

    Hello folks, I purchased a donor movement with case for my first Memovox. Shortly after, I fell in love with the watch and decide to restore the "donor" as well. Here are the results (sorry for the poor lighting :roll:):

    Hello all. I just purchased a used JLC Master Compressor Memovox and received it by mail. I need somebody to tell me if the watch is acting normally or if there is a problem. Here is a list of what I am experiencing with the watch. 1. Once the alarm sounds, the watch continues to make...

    This is one of my favorite watches in my collection. Everything looks great for its age, the watch itself works great. The roman hour marks are so lovely. However, I do have some doubts about the hour and minute hands. I think they are not original to this specific model of Memovox. What do you...

    Good day everyone, I picked up this Memovox on the 'bay and I was wondering if you could give me a critique on my purchase. The watch runs right now, but skips a bit when setting the time. I will have the crystal and a servicing done asap. Alarm is quite loud, especially when on a desk or...

    After I saw the Jaeger LeCoultre tribute to their own Polaris watch from the 60s in a thread here today, I went past a local dealer this evening only to find the watch sitting right in their window :-). I went in and could try it out. What a beauty. 42 mm, domed plexy, clean dial, very...
