Vintage Memovox worldtimers

Ok, I know this is a somewhat tired topic, but I would like to try and confirm a couple things pertaining to vintage memovox.

1) was there ever an automatic memovox worldtimer? Or were they all manual?

2) wouldn't all the jaeger lecoultre branded models (e.g. EU models) have the alarm indicator pointing to London or Geneva? Rather than the lecoultre branded models that point to nyc?

Thank you all! Confirming either of these could make it pretty easy to spot the numerous fakes out there. Also, just got a copy of Zaf's book, very happy customer!

The only model I was able to confirm existed is the manual one documented in the book. I have not been able to formally confirm the existence of the automatic one, though they were probably made. So with that in mind, since the disks exist as loose parts for a few hundred dollars, I would not more than that in addition to the price of a normal E855.
