LeCoultre Wrist Alarm 14k 1950s

Here, we have a 1950s LeCoultre Wrist Alarm that was originally built for the U.S. market. It is similar to the Memovox but has to be named different for the American market.

Next to the Reverso, the Memovox/Wrist Alarm is probably the second most recognizable vintage wristwatch popularized by the manufacture. The alarm function was not only forward-thinking, but also incredible useful.

This example is the manual wind version and is featured by a clean design with no date, a very beautiful chapter ring and a stunning 14k yellow gold case with beautiful fancy lugs.
