    The Meylan name keep popping up in Swiss watch history. The managing director of Lemania at the time of merger with SSIH (Omega/Tissot) held this name. He later moved on to the management of SSIH itself. Names like Piguet and LeCoultre is also found in the Meylan family tree. There is some info to be found on the net, but not very easy to get the picture.
    My watch has a signed crown with the Lemania logo on it. I Guess branding was not as strict as today. ;)

    Interesting and really a great watch. Everything about it is so reminiscent of the 1950´s Seamaster chronographs but it has that lovely multi coloured dial which gives it that something extra. Really very nice :thumbsup:

    I wish I could capture a picture that shows how this dial is starting the first stage of going tropical.

    Third new arrival this week, and only day three of the week (as we count them up here). :D
    Lemania high grade 21jewel caliber 3010 HW. Champagne dial with gold indexes and gold on steel case.
    Something for the festive season for sure;).
