Description:

Unusual Set of a LeCoultre Wrist Alarm and Pocket Alarm Watch, c. 1950s, stainless steel case wristwatch in NOS condition, applied silvered arabic numerals, marked "LeCoultre/Wrist Alarm," blued sweep center seconds, luminous dauphine hands, and alarm hand, dual crowns, screw-back ring case marked "665538," on what appears to be the original leather band, manual-wind movement; together with an aluminum-cased pocket watch or desk clock with silvered dial, blued sweep center seconds, luminous hands and alarm indicator, marked "LeCoultre," dual crowns at 11 and 1, snap-back case with folding easel-style stand marked "677177," 17-jewel, manual-wind, caliber 814 movement, with original box, dia. 34 and 41 mm, respectively.

Note: These pieces were most likely for the American market as the dials do not read "Memovox" nor "Jaeger-LeCoultre" on them.
Estimate $4,000-6,000
