    Great pieces here! Some day I shall gather one of them. I love JLC and I think memovox is one of its greatest models ever.

    the thing I like most on the Memovox ...

    its one of the few, truly iconic vintage watches, made from one of the top 5 comp's of all time ...


    and YET IT IS STILL TO BE HAD FOR CHEAP MONEY! (compared to any somewhat decent new watch)

    doesnt get better than that!
    cheers al

    Could any of you guys help me narrow down when this one was made? I just bought it from another member, still in the mail. It has an 814 caliber with a serial number of 1,200,786. Base on the caliber it was made between 1953 and 1964.

    That serial number correlates to late 1956 for the caliber. Given that the complete watch might not be fully assembled for a year or so, it could be 1957-1959 most likely.

    Nice catch! Congratulations, again, welcome to the 'Vox-Club' ;)

    JLC were certainly masters of design...

    hi there,

    is there a file or site with rough serial numbers vs. year correlations? ... I do have a couple of JLC's and have no real feel for the years

    thx, Al "most appreciated"

    Can anyone comment on the triangle, at which point (years) did it change from being equilateral to isosceles (or vice versa)? To me there doesn't seem to be much logic but I could be wrong. Maybe it has to do with LeCoultre vs Jaeger LeCoultre.

    Actually looking at all the pictures on this thread it doesn't seem to be linked. Unless a lot of them have replacement rotating middle dial.

    For JLC, the transition to the isosceles triangle came about with the 916 caliber (speedbeat) which was the early 70s. These are the E875 models with the JL logo at nine o'clock. The E855 reference in particular (which is many of the examples in this thread) with 825 caliber have the equilateral triangle. Sorry, I don't know enough to comment on just the LC history.
