Here's a "grail" watch for Lecoultre fans -- and who isn't?
A 1970s Lecoultre Memovox HPG in solid, heavy 14k gold....and here's the amazing part, WITH the original matching 10k gold-filled Lecoultre bracelet.
The case is massive, solid 14k, in the classic dimensions: 37mm wide by 42mm from lug to lug.
The gold two-tone dial is in mint condition with cool gold markers and the date at the 6. The only imperfection is some paint loss at the very edge of the crystal from the 8 to the 11 and from the 1 to the 3. Very difficult to photograph this and you'd have to be paying close attention to even see it.
As we said, these 14k Memovoxes in the classic oval style don't come around often, particularly with the matching band. About the band: It will fit a 7.5 inch wrist snugly. There is a minor amount of wear-through at the edge of a couple of links on the bottom side and a bit along one edge of the clasp...very, very minor.
The watch is, in a word, magnificent. The caliber 916 movement keeps excellent time. The alarm works well.
