JLC Memovox 916 - Rare? Help!

Postby markiee75 » Mon Jun 25, 2018 10:51 pm

Hello everyone,

I'm an avid vintage JLC fan, especially with the Memovox models - I own several models but this particular model I own has me stumped... In my huble opinion and from the little that I know about Memovoxes, I'm convinced it is NOT fake (Although I also understand it could be and I may be wrong) ... Can anyone help?

Here's what I know :

- It's a JLC Memovox Cal. 916
- The serial number 2121893 - dates it to possibly 1971-1972 (Zaf's table of serials in his excellent book ends at 1970 ;) )
- I've only seen (1) other example of this anywhere despite my best effort to research - it's on ebay for sale right now for $4200 :shock: -- with supposedly the original bracelet -- although my watch head/ dial looks more mint.
- I have no clue if the Crowns are original
- It looks Amazing in the metal! Pictures are mediocre at best

Thank you in advance for your help


Mark

I haven't seen this exact model before, but my gut feeling is that it is real. Do you have a picture of the case back insides?
