Men's Jaeger LeCoultre Memovox c. 1960s. This was one of the first wrist-watches to be produced that offered an alarm. Black dial with applied arabic hours, dauphin hands and centre seconds. The inner disc rotates the arrow marker for the alarm. Luminous material in the hands and at the hours. Original steel case with plexi glass is in very good condition. Automatic movement by JLC with crown at 4 o'clock for time and date adjustment. Crown at 2 o'clock to wind-up and set the alarm.
My love for vintage watches continue to deepen as I began to take out the many of my watches from the safe. As part of my streamlining exercise, I have began to let go some in ebay..

After months of waiting, my ordered Rolex submariner bracelet has finally arrived from Switzerland! Even though the costs of the bracelet is expensive, the positive aspect is that it has given the Rolex Submriner its "birth certificate" and paper of authenticity and records. Now, the watch serial nos, model nos is registered in the Rolex center system.
Quite glad that the watch is now complete! : )
