    Default FS: Lemania 5100 by Lemania - Heuer Audi Sport Case

    It is time for me to raise some more funds for incoming (already arrived) watches (the Fortis), so here is the first of a few offerings.
    It is a Lemania 5100. From Lemania, and by Lemania.
    You may recognise the shape of the watch, it utilises the same Hexagonal case as was used for the Heuer Audi Sport, one of the rarer Heuer 5100 models.
    This one is rarer still. I have found just about no references to this model, and have seen less than five other examples, one of which was owned by the late Chuck Maddox, and was in black PVD.
    The Heuer Audi-sport was produced in the 1980s, and I can only assume this dates from the same period. The serial number on the movement would tend to agree, dating from slightly later if anything (for those that know, the serial numbers were moved from an inset medallion to the central section of the movement, as far as I can tell about 1990). The condition of the lume tends towards this date.
    With very little to compare with, I cannot really comment on the originality of the watch. It certainly all looks like a match, and there is the usual Lemania use of parts to be seen in other models. The chrono-second hand for instance I think is the usual one used for the ultra-rare SAAF Lemania.
    The hour, minute and chrono-second hands and hour indices are full lume. Chrono-minutes and hours are a faded orange, and the constant seconds hand white.
    The case is polished, and it has an engineered snap-back.
    Day is in French.
    It works fine, keeps good time and the chrono starts stops and rests as it should. The reserve is not quantified but with 30 manual winds it was still going 40hrs later. At that stage it was +3 secs compared to a Waveceptor. Date flips over between 11.30 and 12.15am
    I bought the watch from a German collector a while back, and whilst it should remain in my collection for being one of the only Lemania 5100s out there, I firmly believe thes things are for wearing, and I simply don't (wear it). Other watches jump out of the box onto my wrist well before this one.
    The watch measures 39mm across (excluding crown), and 44mm from lug to lug. It takes 22mm straps and is fitted with an almost new (about 4 days wear) ATG padded and perforated leather and suede backed rally strap that tapers to 18mm at the buckle.

    I am asking SOLD for this rare and interesting chronograph, in good condition for the age, and working well. It will come with the strap, and RMSD in the UK is included. I will examine all sensible offers. No trades, sorry, need the cash.
