    Senior Service Brit' flyer for me, Chris - Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm Lemania (now on a black Di-Modell waterproof kalb strap, which suits the Lemania perfectly - functional and simple)...

    Default Jon, I love it!

    That Lemania single button chrono is gorgeous!

    I am green with envy!

    Say, how do you put the Di Modell strap on it or does it have spring bars now?

    Kind regards

    Chris

    Three great watches.

    The Lemania has spring bars, which is correct for these asymmetrical case single pushers.

    The Di-Modell kalb looks just like those original issued black straps I'm sure I've seen RAF watches on before now.

    Al,

    You've never shown those that I know of. Very Nice -- Love the wabi.

    Most that I see, including mine, are NOS. Nice to see them in the wild.

    Looking closer, the earlier version is completely different - the only parts they share in common seem to be the dial and hour hand? (It was easier to mention what was the same rather than list the differences).
