A Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox from the Korean War: Here’s One You Don’t See Often

by on Mar.08, 2011, under Review

While Jaeger-LeCoultre has a rich history of watches connected to military service, vintage Memovox watches are generally perceived to have had a greater connection with the boardroom than the battlefield. However, currently for sale is an early Memovox that is engraved with: “Presented By Officers of 6160th M & S Group Japan 53.”

The seller states that this was from a United States Air Force Hospital Group involved with the Korean War. The Korean War ended with the Korean War Armistice Agreement in 1953, so it is possible that this watch may have been a gift commemorating the end of the war.

The lugs on this Memovox positively accent the dial and the watch appears to be in nice condition. For more information on this Memovox with ties to the Korean War,″ target=”_blank”>click here.
