Memosail 1980/1990’s





Mid 1980′s the Memosail Automatic  with the Valjoux 7757 movement was introduced, based on the caliber 7750 and with a regatta module integrated from Dubois-Dépraz. This model has a rotating compass bezel and the Paul Elvström tactical system printed on the dial. You can read here how that works. All watches are engraved on the caseback with an individual number (eg. 1-576).
