Celebrating the Sound Maker

Keeping in tune with its longstanding history of chiming watches, Jaeger-LeCoultre launches two new Memovox models in the Master Control collection.

Paying homage to 150 years of Heritage in chiming watches and to the sounds of nature in Vallée de Joux , Jaeger-LeCoultre launches two new Master Control models redefined in the Memovox and featuring a new alarm-setting function and a new design.

The two watches; Master Control Memovox Timer and the Master Control Memovox is given a contemporary style while retaining the spirit of utility and charm of the originals. While the former incorporates a completely new alarm-setting mechanism, the latter features a singularly “clean-lined contemporary style” to the classic alarm-plus date model.

Both the watches feature the Manufacture's comprehensively revised automatic Caliber 956 with a transparent caseback. Allowing the wearer to enjoy watching the hammer in action required for the complete reinvention of the striking mechanism – a feat that was easily achieved by the Manufacture's engineers. Despite multiple changes, one aspect of the movement remains unchanged – the “ signature “school bell” sound of the alarm” which actually gives Memovox its unique charm.

Here are the technical specifications of the two watches:
