Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Tribute to the Original Memovox Deep Sea Watch with Alarm




Jaeger-LeCoultre officially announced at the 2011 SIHH that they will release two limited editions modeled after the two original diving watches from 1959 called the “Tribute to the Deep Sea Memovox.” Both watch editions have identical features of the original models. The only exception to this is the stainless steel case diameter was increased from 39mm to 40.5mm to suite contemporary tastes. The case back is also engraved with the same frogman illustration surrounded by bubbles. Another key point for vintage fans, both of these watches use a plexiglass crystal.
