And now for some history, JLC engineered quite a feat introducing the Memovox Automatic as it is actually the world's first automatic alarm watch!

In 1959, the Memovox Automatic (model E855) received a date display with the automatic caliber K825. This calibre consisted of 241 individual parts and was built in a quantity of about 45,000 over the course of ten years. The K825 was used in the models of the E855, the E859 (also referred to as Polaris, in two versions of 1965 and 1968), and the E861.

The watch cases of the European version of the E855 were manufactured in stainless steel, in 14 carat yellow gold with stainless steel back, in 18 carat yellow gold and in 18 carat red gold. The dials of the European E855 existed in silvery-white, black, gold-colored (only in cases of gold), red or lapis lazuli-like printing. The indices of the European E855 appeared in alternating forms over the ten years in following order: short and thin, long and thin, rectangular with three broad stripes, short with black middle line (French ébène for 'ebony'), or short without a middle line. The first form of the indices of the European E855 came with attached Arabic numerals "12" instead of the "JL" logo on later models.
