Pontiac Jumping 817 - a civilian version of the issued Lemania used by the Swedish Air Force (Viggen) and by the South African Air Force. Pontiac was a brand mainly intended for the belgian market and Pontiac delivered other models to the Belgian Air Force. This watch was probably civilian and is more or less identical to the Tissot Navigator, Rotary, Selectron, Rodania etc.
