Memovox E855 Lapis Lazuli help needed

Postby kadima » Wed Dec 14, 2022 7:17 am

Hello everybody, I found the watch in the pictures and I am not sure it's everything correct. I've read different opinions online about the existence of the Memovox E855 with Lapis Lazuli dial. Did they used this dial on E855? Also, I am not sure about the crowns, they don't have the JL logo, but they doesn't look strange to this watch. I appreciate your help with my issues. Thanks!

Hello,
I am no expert, but this looks refinished to me. I have seen several ones with similar pattern, coming out of Asia (Japan and HK) with different people claiming ith was the orinal factory finish - which I doubt.
Below is an original watch that I believe, have aged to result in such effect:

To compare with my own E875 with the original blue finish:

Despite those being several yers apart, the colors seem consistent, but not with one you posted earlier - it looks too clean and homogenious to me.

I tend to agree with the above post. Also no indication of SWISS or T on the original post on the watch dial?
