JLC public launch of new Polaris REmake

Postby tiktok » January 14th 2018, 6:30pm

Using pictorial teasers and vague comments out of the boutiques it looks like JLC will present an entire new sports line. Not sure if there will be any pieces at the boutique but I'm really looking forward to see what this classic brand will put forward.

The Polaris Line by JLC has it's own history of hype and this year.they have done a total makeover of this line which is chic and toolish at the same time. Six watches, two new movements and prices that tickle the Rolex funny bone of its pious zealots. The Memovox is the only limited edition with its famous underwater alarm clock, the rest, I hope will provide wriggle room enough to go gray or second hand accessible quickly. The watches are all around 42mm with lots of time nobs for bezels, alarms, chrono, and the msrp is $6 to 12k, not bad for a high degree of finish contrasts and the brands prowess in the design of movements. Here's some of the first pics released today. Not sure how much I like what I see, it's a bit sterile for my taste but they have to sell to snowflakes and that's a bitch. Remember when we could have random sex and risk nothing worse than lice?

That blue does look really nice. $6 to 12k is quite a range. Hopefully it falls on the lower end... but not likely.

A very phallic reaction to these watches is perfectly understandable, Mr. Conjurer. They verily are erection-inducing.

I like the movement but they're not watches I'd spend 8 grand on. It would be interesting to know how the big houses price in the LE factor.

Beautiful watches, except for the 'flushing toilet' Prodiveresque case back...

It does indeed resemble Divin' Ivan (shudder).

If you guys mean the logo on the case back of the Memovox LE, it's the 1960s logo of E.Piquerez SA (EPSA), who made the cases for the original Polaris.

The white lettering is a magazine cover. Also Memovox has always had that diver in a bell logo.

Not sure if I understood that correctly. If you mean the Memovox Polaris, yes, that's true. If Memovox in general - nope.

Just in case, a short history lesson for anyone interested... Only the sports/diver Memovox models with cases by EPSA (not all of these had EPSA cases -IIRC, the Deep Sea Alarm didn't) would've had that (on the inside, obviously).
Here's an EPSA Compressor case back (not from a JLC - doesn't matter though, the "helmet" logo appeared on pretty much all Super Compressors):

Like the title says this is all about Polaris line. Here's the chrono movement with tungsten rotor.

OK. I misunderstood ya, then.

The chrono is quite stunning. Still, my favourite is the Polaris Date diver - the standard Super-Compressor-style case design, and the beige lume giving it a somewhat warmer appearance.
