This 146.3.97 Memovox is part of JLC’s sporty Master Compressor line. A striking divers watch featuring the automatic caliber 918 movement, bi-directional rotating alarm disc, date function and grey dial with luminous hands, it represents a massive and solid timepiece for sporty but also everyday situations. The white gold three-body case of 41 mm diameter seems large given the complications it houses but the watch sits nicely on the wrist thanks to its beautifully concave and curved lugs. The well preserved case also presents a compressor key for alarm winding crown at 2, time-setting and winding crown at 4, winding crown at 10 for the revolving dive time ring. The grey dial has luminous arabic numerals and dart indexes, outer bi-directional revolving disc for the dive time, apertures for the alarm indication and the date, furthermore this very watch is offered with original box and papers.
