This Lemania Reference 192C from 1949 with the caliber S27 is in impeccable , well preserved shape. The case is still sharp , the original chamfering on top of the lugs are still crisp as day one. The dial , the hands are like looking at a time capsule, everything is untouched. The patina on the luminious markers has aged gracefully to a roasted almondish color. The dial has went tropical grey (An Actual Dial Defect that was caused with Sun, not moisture damage.) The original breguet hairspring is still in tact!
These are great investments and every year it is getting harder to find a non relumed , overpolished example. The S27 caliber inside these Lemanias are actually what was the base to many legendary chronograph movements .. like the CH27 found in the Pre-Moon speedmasters.
