    I am interested in trading my Memovox - please see pics, and I am happy to answer any questions. Can work out shipping/insurance arrangement as part of the deal, but US deals are probably easier, logistically (I am located in California).
    Some interests (with cash for trades up or down):
    Heuer Camaro 9220/7220
    Heuer Carrera 3647/2447
    Other interesting vintage chronographs
    Speedy (Early 1980s - 145.022/145.0022)
    Rolex Explorer 14270
    Rolex Explorer II 16570

    But feel free to make proposals - vintage, modern - interested to see what offers I get!!

    Thanks for looking!

    The watch:
    Jaeger LeCoultre
    Memovox, E855
    Case #931936

    Case: In great shape, sharp, thick lugs. Probably polished lightly at some point in its life.The horizontally brushed finish along the sides of the case are intact and correct. Caseback engraving with the case # is sharp.

    Dial: See pics. Original. Overall, the dial is in great shape; some small scratches that you can see that are not too visible unless under magnification. Lume plots at 12, 1, and 6 have some bruising/damage, but otherwise pleasant.

    Hands: Correct dauphine hands were color matched at some point, but original as far as I know.

    Bracelet: period-correct, but not original to the watch. I was able to snag one (actually 2; both from OF members). Gay Freres bracelet, with the correct JLM endlinks. These are much more rare than the watch itself (if you know, then you know).

    Movement/alarm: not serviced during my ownership (2.5 years). Prior service history unknown to me. I have not timed the watch, but seems to run fine and have not noticed major issues with daily wear. Alarm is strong and works well. Quickset date. Datewheel works as it should.

    Pics - taken in fairly harsh lighting to show all the imperfections:

    Title says SOLD, so probably not.
