    Default Italian Lemania Deck Watch

    I got my first Lemania incoming first time I had some thing I could post here. It's a Italian issued deck watch not much info except a few that sold at auction and one posted at the German military watch forum even there not much there. I do know it has a Lemania 1520 movement. Any one know more info like year used and what it was used for I was thinking navigation. A few of the sellers photo's. Most I seen at auction house sites are missing the mounting outer case. Any one got more info on these ?

    Lovely.
    Really nice
    I see from the ruler that it is about 12 cm inside that outer case.
    That's proper clock sized.
    Lovely

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

    Nice big watch
    I've read briefly through that post you've linked: nothing really relevant in german IMHO, the most interesting parts are the quotes from the italian collector, which are in english

    Rega your right BIG watch one pocket watch you can't put in your pocket. Over at the Omega forum there's a unique section well this watch is unique so posted it there a member said from the serial numbers it was made in the 1950's. I think he was right found a French Navy deck watch that sold with the same movement the decom paper said it was put in service in 1954 did think it was older like the 1930-1940 but was wrong on that.
