    Another LeCoultre Memovox

    Hello folks,
    I purchased a donor movement with case for my first Memovox. Shortly after, I fell in love with the watch and decide to restore the "donor" as well.
    Here are the results (sorry for the poor lighting ):

    Awesome! I like the lighting - a very warm effect.

    The "donor" watch is called the Golden Heritage as was made beginning in 1963.



    It is one of the few Memovoxes that has a dust cover inside that contains the resonator that creates the alarm sound.



    Take care,

    I have lucked out this lovely NOS dial from a local supplier. They apparently bought all left over stocks when JLC stopped using LeCoultre brand in NA.
    I was doubly lucky to salvage parts for two working movement out of three broken ones as well :)

    @gatorcpa
    Thank you for providing wonderful history on the Memovox. There are so much I can learn from here.
