    From my personal collection, on offer is a rare bird indeed—a Wakmann-Lemania triple-register chronograph, powered by a cal. 1280 manual-winding movement. This all steel beauty with its graceful dagger hands, slim lugs, and aged but sharp dial is the epitome of elegance. Replacement crystal, but otherwise original, including the signed Lemania crown.

    The dial is lovely, and in excellent condition, with only a small mar in the outer tachy ring between 6 and 7 (visible under a loupe, see pics). Matches reference dials (though these are rare).

    Signed in four places--dial, crown, interior caseback, movement.

    All functions work perfectly, the watch is keeping good time, and the chrono resets exactly to zero. Last service was in 2019, and it has been worn very sparingly since then.

    This watch is very similar to Lemanias and Tissots from the same period and with the same movement.

    35mm w/o crown
    18mm lugs

    Comes on a plain brown or black leather strap.

    Asking $1650 ONO + shipping. I travel frequently between the UK, EU, and US, so can likely arrange domestic shipping from all three (given a bit of patience!). Will also consider trades.

    Someone dibsed this a while back, though I can't recall who--will respect that if they PM me!

    I have sold several watches on OF, endorsements here:

    Willing to consider trades, as I would like to keep this one in the OF community, if I can.
