    Dear OF

    For your consideration here is the rare and beautiful stainless steal case Lemania with special date complication

    The watch is powered with rare Lemania cal 2990/DS27 which is a high grade caliber used as the base for Lemania/Omega chronographs.

    The special feature is the quick set date button at two a clock which was very unusual for watches during 40s. Details about the movement can be found here. (Note the unusual regulator with catch device for hairspring)

    The watch is freshly serviced by my watchmaker and works great.

    I thought Rolex “invented” the cyclops or “magnifier” in the 50’s…
    Extremely cool watch, I love it :)

    I see what you mean :D
    Let's ignore "original" in the crystal description.
    But I do like Rolex connection in this thread.

    Cheers, Kapka

    Sorry about that, I didn’t want it to seem like I was saying something negative about your watch. I honestly love it, I’m trying to justify buying it in my head :D
    If I don’t, GLWS
