    JLC Memovox 855 - no "Swiss Made" on bottom of dial

    I recently purchased this Memovox after long seeking this style. I've always noticed that sometimes the "Automatic" is under the JLC logo at 12 o'clock, and sometimes the automatic is at the 6 o'clock position. Regardless, you cannot see the "Swiss Made" font on my watch dial......are there any versions of the 855 where this was not printed, or is this a re-dial?

    Thanks,

    You would have to post bigger/tighter photos in order for others to analyze the dial. However, the lack of SWISS MADE is not, in and of itself, a cause for concern. There were plenty of original dials that lacked that notation.

    Thanks Tony C. I will work for a tighter photo (bad iPhone work). Do you know what resulted in the reason some dials had reference to Swiss Made and others did not? I've searched the forum and online and can't find any historical reference to why this might be.

    Thanks...I'm definitely excited to have finally found it...love the bumper movement and how you can feel it while on the wrist. It's a great looking piece for sure - timeless.
