About the movement:
Caliber 814 is a manual winding alarm movement from Jaeger-LeCoultre Introduced in 1953.
Calibre 814 then joined Calibres 489 and 601 in the Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox range. Essentially an improved version of Calibre 489, Cal. 814 would be produced until 1964 when it was replaced by the popular Calibres 910 and 911.
As in Cal. 489, the alarm hammer struck a protuberance on the back plate, making a distinctive buzzing sound.
