    Hi OF

    This Lemania chrono from late 80's/very early '90's is in truly excellent condition. Was described prior to my purchase as 'almost-NOS' and on the wrist that's certainly true.

    The 39mm case and lugs are sharp with no scratches or marks. The dial and bezel are as new. Tritium plots and hands are consistent in colour and the lume glows strongly under UV and fades quickly...

    The 5012 movement hasn't been recently serviced but keeps excellent time and is very clean.

    The blue/red timer markings, coupled with the orange chrono and one sub-dial hand (almost Ultraman-esque...) make for a stunning combination. Watch comes on a vintage NSA bracelet which is very similar in appearance to the super-rare original.

    The prior owner (well known collector here on the OF) did quite a bit of research on this reference and the spec as seen here is very uncommon. The Lemania 5012 movement (as well as the dial without the timing colours) was used in NATO military issued watches as can withstand 7g forces without losing time.

    The watch is here with me in New Zealand. Price of USD 3.600 (or equivalent in any major currency that works for the buyer - even New Zealand dollars will do...) is inclusive of fully insured shipping via FedEx to wherever FedEx delivers. I use Wise for all international payments and receipts as transactions are quickly arranged and exchange rates are ultra competitive.

    The photos form an important part of the description as I am no aficionado. I have several references here on the forum as both seller and buyer.

    Bump. And if you happen to have an Autavia in Siffert colours that you'd be happy to have this in part payment against - do let me know!:thumbsup:
