    I know a bunch of members here have nice Lemanias as I see them on the WRUW thread. I'm referring to watches that also have "Lemania" on the dial, not just those with Lemania movements. I searched and was surprised that there's no thread yet that compiles such watches (the closest is one thread dedicated to 5100s). I only have one such watch, which is the 3872 below. I'm hoping to add a Nuclear Sub or a 105 to my collection in the future. So, please, post your Lemanias! Thanks!

    I thought any thread by @Northernman was "the Lemania thread"?

    And of course that one that I have shown to death here - the Viggen. It is in posting quarantine.

    I actually had you in mind when I was making the thread, so please release the Viggen from quarantine (this thread would be incomplete without it).

    Well... A really small one then - I do not want it to think it is better than the others.

    You are a sick person. I believe you are worse than me.

    So many nice ones! I want them all but the one that really gets me going extra, extra much is the one in your qoute. What is that? What size is it? Is it going my way anytime soon?

    By the way, and just between you and me ;), do you have a Helima? And do you catch my drift?

    Only two were mine - the third was my watchmakers. And one of mine belongs to a guy on OF since long. My watchmaker sold his one too.

    :) There ain´t no cure....
    The one you linked to is a cal 4650 automatic. It is one of my all time favorites. From memory it´s 35mm diameter wo crown.
    I picked it up from a Swiss seller on eBay back in 2013. Close to NOS condition. I have not dared to open it in fear of scratching the pristine case back, but only the cal 4650 fits the automatic/21J/sweep seconds.
    The 4650 is a true "in house" Lemania movement. At least Tissot did also use it in some of their watches as the caliber Tissot 23.3R-21.

    If you ever see one in the wild, and I do know of the one on auction in May, I will be VERY thankful. :D:whistling:

    I won`t bore you with any additional Lemania pictures, since my much appreciated Norwegian neighbor already kicked it out of the park, but I can show a Lemania that I don´t own, but I would love to own, and that I have spent quite some effort trying to buy, but so far without any progress. But I´m hoping, that one day, the phone will ring :)

    That is a perfect watch in every aspect. DIBS if you for some strange and unforseen reason would have to part with it.
