It's probably a French market watch, circa 1933-1934.

Any gold LeCoultre is "relatively rare" but it doesn't necessarily translate into huge dollar amounts. The dial on this watch has been refinished. Value is under $1000 in my opinion.

Re: Memovox E875 - acrylic glass replacement

How do you know it's an original crystal is more my question. In my opinion, there is no way to tell, so best not to worry about it. If it clears the hands you are likely to have the right crystal profile anyway.
