    Well, it seems as there are quite a few variations of this watch, so I will add mine which is another unique variation in comparison to the other in this thread.

    Found this thread and many more here in my quest to add a vintage piece to the collection. Decided on the Lemania 5100 but have never really liked the odd case designs. The Lorenz checked all the right boxes and came with a humble price. I think most of what can be said about these pieces already has but I hope to add my specs here soon. The watch is enroute from Italy. Will add more pics and detailed info once in hand. Here's a teaser shot....

    Wow. Seriously jealous. I have been on the look out for one recently and this looks great.

    Well a registry never dies so I'll add mine by saying it's the same as Andy's from page 1 in every way, bracelet included, except I'm sure the movement number which I haven't viewed. From what I've seen the case back numbers were 12042 on what seems to be the first version with the all black dial. That number carried over to the earlier versions of the silver dialed ones which still had minute markers to 20 on the bezel. Then when they changed the bezel to have only minute markers to 15 the case number was changed to 16856 (still on the silver dialed version. Other minor changes have occurred all along the way as well) and then that number was carried over into the last version which had an all blue dial. Any dissenters on this observation?

    The crown/crown protecting lugs was another of those changes that began with I think the first version of the silver dialed model. My crown measures 6.03mm in diameter by 3.7mm thick with a digital caliper. Does anybody have specs of theirs with the 12042 case?

    i've looked at my all black and at my black/silver registers. yes, crown protection on the black one is sort of more massive, and crown seems to be a bit bigger.

    Hmm, the all black one has a bigger crown? Does it have a logo? Do yours have different case back numbers?

    Both crowns don't have a logo. I'll look at the caseback numbers later.

    Default Deciding bewteen the all black or reverse panda faces? Help

    Hello all, I recently aquired a Sinn EZM1 and love the lemania 5100. I've been attracted to the Lorenz for a while as well and would love some help from board members about making a choice between two models available. both in the $1,200 range a earlier example with the all black face and no tachymeter scale and bezel with only the triangle pip and the writing on the face has logo lorenz automatic Subprofessional 200 meters and it seems to be more brushed but requires some service as it isn't fully resetting or the identical version to Lancasters picture above but with white subdials instead of silver. The all black face that needs service actually costs more. Any thouights, does it make a difference aside from aesthetics? I like reverse pandas, but there is something abou the all black face that I really like, its a bit dressier. I don't want to post the selllers photos as they are not mine to post. The face of the all black watch seems like its in better shape as well Thanks

    As a fan of the EZM1 (good taste) you clearly like a clean look without ostentation and flummery.
    So I suggest all black.
    I have read in Italian forums that they reckon the Lorenz standards dropped towards the end of the range with much poorer bracelets and casework, meaning you should go for the earliest example that you can.
    But I am not sure this is the case.
    My blue one is a later version and is fine. And I should add that the blue one is the one of choice for me, as it has a very subtle chrome ring round the sub-dials, which elevates it above the plain black. But they are very hard to find, I tried for ages before I got mine.

    If it's Lemania-powered, I'm interested. Tool Chrono - interested. Dive Chrono - interested. Interesting - interested
