The Polaris model was launched in 1965 as the successor to the Memovox DeepSea, this was the watch manufacturer’s response to the ever-increasing popularity of recreational scuba diving wristwatches. Manufactured between 1965 and 1970, the total production of the Polaris model is believed to be fewer than 1714 pieces. The present example remains in superb original condition making it a highly desirable example of the model.
