    Default Vintage Lemania Chronograph


    I rescued this great 1970’s Lemania chronograph from the ‘bay a couple of years ago.
    I had the dial and hands gently cleaned, so as not to lose any more of the great detail on the dial. You’ll note there is a little paint missing from the hour register at 6:00. It’s still too nice to redial, in my opinion.
    The hands were repainted their original yellow, and new gaskets were added under the crystal and case back. Dale did the bodywork to get rid of the scratches, and it now gets more compliments than any of my other watches. Really!
    The Lemania 1873 (same as the Omega 861 used in countless Speedmasters) is clean, winds so smoothly, and runs great. All chrono functions work as designed, but I have not had it serviced.
    The inner elapsed time bezel works with the crown at 10:00, and again, works smoothly as designed.
    There is one scratch on the crystal, which I couldn’t get to come out in any of the photographs, and is very hard to see. Again, not enough for me to consider replacing the crystal.
    Dimensions: It’s 43mm across without the crown, and 14mm thick! Lug to lug, it’s 43.5mm so still wears great on a smaller wrist. Really, it’s my answer to not having a Pannerai. With a 22mm lug distance, it wears well on any strap or bracelet option. Looks great on an Omega mesh (not included).

    Here’s a shot on a dressy crocodile strap

    And finally, on the period bracelet that IS included!


    Price: $850 REDUCED: $750! shipped within the continental US. I'll ship elsewhere if you'll help pay the freight. Paypal is best.
    I’ll also include a new, never worn Breitling style strap with a deployant clasp. The other straps/bracelets are not included at that price, but we can certainly talk if you want one of them.
    Not interested in trades at present. Thanks for your time!
