Jaeger LeCoultre Memovox Alarm 18K YG "Snowdrop" circa 1970s
Scarce Jaeger Lecoultre 18K YG Memovox “Snowdrop” circa 1970s. At 43mm, this is a large and scarce diver’s model, with original brilliant bright gold dial with contrasting black enamel filled indexes and matching gold baton hands. Powered by self winding caliber 916 movement with sweep seconds and date. With original signed JLC crowns for setting the date and time and the alarm function.
An exceptionally strikng model with original gold plated NSA manufactured bracelet with fold over NSA logo clasp. Substantial and eye catching color, design, and wear, makes a very big impact on the wrist. It is estimated that around 2000 Snowdrops were made, with only somewhere around 100 of them having been made in gold.
This Snowdrop was recently fully serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers, and is accompanied by our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation. Along with your purchase also comes one of our beautiful handmade Italian leather watch travel pouches, a $55 value!
NOTE: some caseback wear makes the serial #s on the caseback legible, but hard to photograph. Additionally the very shallow engraved JLC center logo is worn and visible only with careful examination.
