    Default lemania Czech pilot's watch

    Here is a Lemania Czech pilot's watch WWII
    in 1938,some watches become German(captured),and some came to Uk with the Czech pilots who get away from their occuped country.
    Some part of them fights in RAF Bombers units.
    My picture is in this context

    Hi Thierry,

    Excellent posts.... yes the Czech pilot watches are very interesting... Longines, Eterna, Lemania.. any other versions...?

    Excellent photos as usual Thierry. I have been trying to resist one of these Lemanias but I think I will now give in. I have read quite a few biographies about Czech RAF pilots and was appalled by the way they were treated, particularly after the war. I can thoroughly recommend the Czech film Dark Blue World which is readily available on DVD...



    It is a sad but poignant tale of two Czech pilots flying Spitfires for the RAF, with a strong cast. Here's the wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_Blue_World. Here is a link to the Sony Classics page too: http://www.sonyclassics.com/darkblue...withflash.html.

    Regards

    Jon'.
