Available fully serviced from PTC is this fabulous and exotic Jaeger Le Coultre travel alarm that is around the size of a wrist watch, the case is 45 mm x 45 mm and 10 mm thick, it houses a MEMOMATIC 911 calibre, that is time tested, and worthy of a larger mention - the calibre has been lovingly serviced, and maintains a + 10-15 seconds per day time run. It is important to note that since the case is a stand up case, in this position, gravity acts upon the upright balance wheel, and makes it slightly sluggish, so winding it up everyday to keep an optimum performance is indeed essential to maintain the time keeping. At a lower level of power, it does not maintain the same time keeping, and tends to give around 20-25 seconds.
The case has seen significant eroding, and the brass underneath the gold plating and the thick enamel coat has some chips too. The movement is in fine nick, and the parts have been lubricated and working perfectly. The alarm sounds within 1-2 minutes on the preset time, which is the norm for alarm time pieces. So, to be able to have multiple alarms during the day, you must wind up the alarm section and this will give you the alarm sound, which is a very decent sound, not loud or blaring, it is a very discreet bell sound, which is pleasing to the ears. Jaeger Le Coultre is the master of MEMOVOX and portable alarm pieces, time pieces and more. This one has been made in 1970's and one can see the design aspect of the 1970's in the case work.
Please note that the service guarantee is 2 years from the date of sale. The service can be expected to last at least 6-7 years, and does depend a lot on how you use it. An excellent part of this Alarm clock, is that it has it's own case, and carry pouch- this pouch is pictured along, and measures 52 x 58 mm
There has been some water intrusion in this case during it's lifetime, and some faint marks are seen on the movement, dial and case. The goldpating is also slightly worn off at the area where the daily winding takes place, goldpating is diminished in this region, the brass plating can be seen at the top near the winding up crown [Time keeping winding mechanism]
