Jaeger LeCoultre Memovox Tribute to Deep Sea
Jaeger LeCoultre discharges another re-issue and may I say, again a decent one! Two new restricted edition models Memovox Tribute to Deep Sea glance they will sell out quick.
Recently Jaeger LeCoultre delivered the Grande Reverso Ultra Thin as recognition for the absolute first Reverso. Two years prior they previously delivered the Memovox Tribute to Polaris 1965 and the Memovox Tribute to Polaris 1968, likewise two truly alluring super-compressor style watches! Furthermore, allows not to fail to remember the Memovox International that was delivered last year.
And now a recognition for the Deep Sea, a vintage Jaeger LeCoultre jump watch from 1959. There are two new Memovox Tribute to Deep Sea models, one for the European Market and one for the American market.
The Memovox recognition for Deep Sea is given in two restricted arrangement: the “Jaeger-LeCoultre Classique 1959” expected for the European market (presented above) and the “LeCoultre Spécial Amérique 1959” for the American market (presented underneath). The Memovox Tribute to Deep Sea has a plexiglass that is indistinguishable from that of the vintage Deep Sea models! A decent touch that I truly appreciate. Jaeger LeCoultre expanded the size of the case from 39.8mm to 40.5mm, still an exceptionally pleasant size! I’m happy they haven’t increased its size to 44mm or more.
The Memovox Tribute to Deep Sea “Classique 1959″ and Memovox Tribute to Deep Sea “Spécial Amérique 1959″ share most specifications:
- mechanical programmed development, Jaeger-LeCoultre Caliber 956, created, amassed and brightened by hand

The one presented above is the Memovox Tribute to Deep Sea Replica of the “Jaeger-LeCoultre Classique 1959”, made for the European market and restricted to 959 pieces. The following is the Memovox Tribute to Deep Sea Replica of the “LeCoultre Spécial Amérique 1959”, made for the US market and this one is restricted to 359 pieces. I have no clue about why the US market, which is greater than the European market, just gets 359 pieces. Furthermore I’m extremely intrigued by the number of the 959 pieces expected for the European market will be sold in Asian AD’s.
Here is some intriguing history Jaeger LeCoultre remembered for their press release:
The first jumper’s watch instrument
In the mid 1950s, mankind was intensely devoted to building another world. Current people were dynamic and bold, epitomizing the estimations of a future-situated time and quick to set off on the revelation of new regions zeroing in on the neglected heart of mainlands, the boundlessness of the universe, and the sea profundities. In 1957 the USSR dispatched the primary counterfeit satellite of the Earth. A couple of months sooner, Jacques-Yves Cousteau and Louis Malle had revealed the intriguing secrets of submerged life in the film entitled The Silent World and which was acclaimed by pundits at the Cannes Film Festival and in this way by the general population on the loose. Commander Cousteau’s energy was before long shared by a developing number of enthusiastic scuba plunging fans, particularly once the concurrent creation of a progressive jumping bottle encouraged the spread of this promising youthful order. Another sort of sports fan arose, requiring instruments fit to the activity of their as of late created energy and ready to assist them with undertaking their courageous missions underneath the sea.
In request to fulfill need from American aficionados of this thriving game, Jaeger-LeCoultre dispatched a challenging undertaking in 1959 including the improvement of a jumper’s watch. This addressed to a great extent a strange area at that point, without any models specifying the requests that ought to be met by this exceptional class of watches, and just about 20 years were to pass before the reception of the NIHS standards appropriate to jumper’s watches. The watchmakers and professionals of the Manufacture quickly set to work and that very year introduced a watch supplied with a level of unwavering quality and exhibitions that were really extraordinary in that early time of submerged investigation. The Memovox Deep Sea was the world’s first jumper’s watch furnished with an alert capacity. Jaeger-LeCoultre engineers gave the full proportion of their creative abilities to changing the alert commonly highlighted on Memovox watches into an acoustic sign intended to caution jumpers that the time had come to start their reformist climb to the surface. With regards to a fundamental guideline reliably maintained by the Manufacture, usefulness was at that point committed to serving security.
