1940s Lemania Cal. 15TL Chronograph Black Tach Rare Portugal Market
PRICE : ￥968,000 (including tax)
A 1940s Lemania model, step-bezel case, 37mm Chronograph with the famous Caliber 15TL in stainless steel case together with a popular black tachymeter dial.
The famous Caliber 15TL that supplied Omega and Tissot, Lemania 37mm stepped bezel chronograph is a rare find in the Portuguese market. The 37mm oversized case with its step bezel design makes a wonderful overall statement to the watch piece, and the black mirrored dial, retaining its beautiful luster, is a classic example of this period. The watch is also available in a simple military design, but the tachymeter scale on the periphery of the dial gives it a more chronograph-like mechanical look. The hallmark at 11 o’clock on the lugs is a rare piece, indicating that the watch was shipped to Portugal.
