The Watch: 1960s Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox

The Details: Varvatos was walking along west London's Portobello Road in the early 1990s when he had the good fortune of coming across this Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox watch, which, as a vintage watch collector, he had dreamed of owning some day. "It's an elegant and classic automatic timepiece with an unprecedented acoustic performance and alarm function," he said. Here he pairs it with a handmade sterling silver beaded leather bracelet designed by M. Cohen for John Varvatos.
