    I once owned a nice trio of Lemania-powered military veterans. There all gone now...

    Lemania one-pusher chronograph cal. 2220 issued to the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm

    Orfina Porsche Design BUND issued

    Fortunately, while my watch collection turned into a memory, I managed to keep that beautiful Royal Navy issued stopwatch.

    Just wanted to add my two current issued pieces, which sort of serve to bookend Lemania's military output.

    First, my HS9, procured and issued to the RN and Fleet Air Arm in the late 1940s. This one is a Series 1, with early issue number (about 1000), and it had a short enough service life to have retained its original sterile radium dial (later on the MoD replaced these with tritium dials, which were Lemania signed)

    [​IMG]

    Second, my Tutima ZUZ, procured by Zoll and issued to the ZUZ in 2001, almost at the point when Lemania ceased to exist. This one was decommissioned in 2012, when I bought it direct from the Zoll disposal auction.

    [​IMG]

    I also have a Lemania-powered Auricoste pocket chrono issued by the Ministre de la Guerre, and have owned Tengler and Pd Bunds, amongst others.
    Lemania has a very proud issued history in the military worldwide, but also elsewhere. The BBC, NASA (all Omega Moonwatch movements), and the list goes on.

    I really like that Tutima. It's really a pity that only a handful were made in that configuration. Kudos to you for sourcing one.

    Back in the days, I had the civilian edition of their Military Chronograph, and was always attracted to the more exclusive Commando II.

    I love the Commando II. While I miss my more common Tutima Military Chronograph (in steel), I would probably hunt for the Commando version for a future purchase as I love the clean look of the dial. To me, it's even better than Sinn EZM1's.

    Thanks Pascal,
    i love it too, especially the Titanium that keeps it wearable for such a large watch, and the flat pushers also help. Dial and function are great, don`t even miss a Tachymeter although a counting bezel like the ZUZ one would have been great although that version has to many minute markings for my taste. So i am very happy with my central hands chronograph :)
