  • Catalogue Essay

    Released in 2016, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Memovox Boutique Edition was made to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the original Memovox from 1956. Regarded and praised by collectors as one of the most iconic models ever produced by the firm, the Memovox was the first self-winding wristwatch to feature an alarm function via the Jaeger-LeCoultre cal. 815.

    Encased in its signature dual-crowned stainless steel case, the boutique edition encapsulates an elegantly executed tri-colored blue dial with its distinctive main dial finished in sunburst. Retaining its greyish blue outer minute track, the resemblance to its original Memovox Snowdrop from the 1970s is uncanny.

    Adored by many, the present Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Memovox of a limited edition of 500 pieces is delightfully well-preserved and is complete with its full set of accessories consigned by its original owner.

  • Artist Biography


    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.
