  • Catalogue Essay

    Realized in a limited edition of 959 pieces (this being number 376) in homage to the original launch year 1959, the present watch reprises very interesting technical solutions employed in the 1960 model, such as the screw-down-ring back sealing system, and the back featuring an internal protrusion at the center: this would avoid deformation of the back at high pressure. An immediate success, the Memovox Tribute to Deep Sea is already a highly coveted and collectible timepiece.

    Jaeger-LeCoultre

    Swiss • 1833

    Not all companies in the watchmaking field have been able to stand the test of time quite like Jaeger LeCoultre, also known as the "watchmaker's watchmaker." Founded in 1833 by Antoine LeCoultre and originally named LeCoutre, the firm provided watchmaking's top brands, such as Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin and Audemars Piguet, the high-grade, unfinished mechanical movements with which they completed their watches.



    In the early 1900s, Cartier's watch supplier Edmond Jaeger sought out LeCoultre's help in creating the world's thinnest watches. The collaboration resulted in the creation of Cartier's earliest Tank and Santos watches, all housed with LeCoultre movements. The duo decided to merge in 1937, and the firm officially became the Jaeger-LeCoultre brand by which collectors know and adore it today. Some of the firm's most significant and important timepieces include the Reverso, the Memovox, the Atmos clock and, among modern watches, their Master Complications.
