Additional information (extracted from internet) :

The essential features of the Memovox Polaris, the strong dna, naturally had to be present in this remake: a large 42 mm polished water-resistant steel case, a domed synthetic glass, the black dial, the triple case-back that enabled optimal diffusion of sound below water and water resistance to 200 meters, the emblematic alarm display with its central black disc bearing a luminescent triangle as an adjustment marker, the sweep center second and date aperture at 3, central seconds hand, the internal rotating bezel with diving time, the three large crowns with their instantly recognizable vintage gridwork motif.

The crown at 2 o'clock: to wind and adjust the alarm, the one at 3 to adjust the inner rotating dial ring, the last one at 4 o'clock to set the time and allow manual winding. The cas back is engraved with the diving helmet logo.

While the design remains faithful to the original, the movement incorporates the latest technical innovations of Jaeger-LeCoultre's automatic movements. This watch is powered by a caliber JLC 956, rhodium-plated, 23 jewels, 28'800 alt/h, with suspended gong, an approx 45 hour power reserve, a variable-inertia balance beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, an oscillating weight equipped with ceramic ball bearings and a total of 268 parts. With a total weight of 88 grammes, the new model is only 3 grammes heavier than the original.
