Memosail is a Swiss watch company that was founded in 1970 as a daughter company of Ebauches SA, which was created to bring order to the chaotic watch industry by merging major Swiss watch movement manufacturers. In 1972, Memosail filed for the trademark name and began producing regatta watches to compete with Aquastar and Felsa regatta movements. The company’s watches featured the Valjoux 7737 movement, which was developed by another Ebauches SA daughter company, Valjoux SA. During the 1970s and early 1980s, the Swiss watchmaking industry suffered due to the Quartz Crisis, which caused the decline of the entire industry as the majority of the world’s watch production shifted to Asian companies that embraced the new technology. Memosail also suffered from this crisis, and in the beginning of the 1980s, the company introduced the Memosail Swiss Quartz, a yachttimer with an LCD display, driven by a quartz ESA/ETA 931.671 movement. The company is not around in the present days, but their watches are highly sought after by collectors and enthusiast.
