Description

Beautiful answer to JLC's Memovox - Omega Memomatic offers a lot of advanced features: "modern" rotor-automatic movement, date indication and, what makes it all different, possibility of setting your alarm to hours and minutes! Though it was born in 1969, Memomatic foresaw trends and design of the 70s with shape of the case, dial's layout and offered colors. It is powered by beautifully designed Cal.890, with a quick-set date. This particular pieces preserved original factory finishing of the case with very few traces of wear and immaculate dial in beautiful shiny silver color.
