Usually when things are complicated, it means more stress, more work, and more effort, but in the end, it's worth it. The same holds true for wristwatches, where gifted artisans and engineers labor for months to create complicated timepieces that transcend art and talent. When it comes to wristwatches, the highest realms of respect and value are reserved for these watches that do much more than merely tell time.
Jaeger-LeCoultre created the classically beautiful Master Control Memovox watch to pay homage to their famous vintage alarm models. It can be used a schedule enhancer or as a display of incredible precision purchased to adorn a deserving gentleman's wrist.
As a member of the coveted Master Control series, the watch was tested for 1000 hours in extreme conditions including categories of temperatures, shocks and vibrations, and passing through magnetic fields of 5000 amperes per meter before originally being offered for sale.
Today's offering showcases this Certified Pre-Owned Master Memovox. We were fortunate to acquire it in such fabulous condition appearing to have only been lightly worn and stored safely in its box for safekeeping. It comes complete with its full complement of original certificate, booklets, manuals, and original inner and outer box.
Its dial and crystal are like new. Its case and bracelet present as mint on the wrist.
Our Master Watchmaker has performed any needed servicing and replaced all of the waterproofing gaskets with new seals.
For the finishing touch we have fully detailed it making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function and a new Connoisseur of Time Certificate new timing certificate attesting to its performance.
