    From a comment @Bill Sohne made in another thread I thought I would see what else is out there.

    Will start with my Lemania, picked this one up a few years ago from @Northernman after I layed eyes on it at a GTG with him in Denmark.
    ( this gets a lot of comments by WIS and non WIS for some reason, )

    Not as interesting as yours (and not unique or complicated), but here is my contribution.

    Like Bill, I have a soft spot for these, and own more than a few. Here's the most elegant that I have found, and I've only seen two examples over the years.

    And an odd "non-Lemania" one:

    A real Lemania masterpiece, completely original (@Northernman has it in a catalogue somewhere) If i remind well there should also be a version with a white dial but till this day I have never seen another black dial like this and never seen a white version...the search is still on :)

    2 Other Lemania SC's twin pairs still waiting for the spa...

    I like all of these. the compressor market really shot up within the last 5 years. i believe it peaked for the most 2 crown models. i like the single crown but most of them are smaller and the sellers want too much for them

    35-36mm for single crown compressor cases are common. They wear very well on a Nordic wrist.
    Much like a vintage Seamaster. But cooler and rearer.

    Does this count as a single crown (yet with two pushers)?
