MEYLAN PVD CHRONOGRAPH (Sinn 143) LEMANIA c5012 BLK/BLK 70s *NOS*
Currently at REDUCED by €1000 of original ASKING Price for QUICK, hassle free sale ONLY!
NEW OLD STOCK - not a mark on the PVD, other than a single strap change respectively - running dead accurate in all functions - you will not find another in this condition, 50 years after manufacture!
Has killer DNA all over it:
Lemania SAAF chronograph = same Lemania calibre 5012!
Same model as coveted cult-status SINN 143, though earlier circa mid 1970s.
BULLETPROOF Lemania automatic calibre 5012 (low beat 5100) DAY DATE equipped.
BIG Size: 39.5 mm diameter without crown, of course / 20 mm lug size.
PVD coated aluminum alloy, incredibly strong and light chronograph by Lemania.
Drop-dead gorgeous pumpkin TRITIUM original dial and hands in stunning condition, perfect.
ORIGINAL Swiss Tropic strap, all NOS.
1970’s Black on Black equivalent to today’s BAMFORD appeal, so very ahead of the times.
Uber RARE and recognized model:
Only found TWO (2) other unfortunately, well worn examples while researching, links available of course, this is a TRUE example of a recognized uber-rare PVD-coated Black MEYLAN-Lemania chronograph calibre 5012, which is a rarer MODIFIED low-beat version of the coveted 5100 calibre.
MEYLAN was a haute Lemania brand (Meylan Decimal chronograph fame), and under same umbrella particularly 1960s/70s and previous - earlier Lemania history dating back to Marius Meylan, and Lemania Lugrin SA.
NOTE: this is true NOS example circa 1970s and will have a stray swirl or fine scratch here or there - though PVD appears absolutely PERFEKT - as a TRUE NOS would. I would question ANY spotless 50 year old watch on the market presented as NOS, FYI: these watches pick up marks even from storage in all that time.
Model: MEYLAN CHRONOGRAPH PVD
Movement: LEMANIA calibre 5012
Year: circa mid 1970s
NOTE: New Old Stock
ASKING: NOW €3.400 was 4.400 EURO - will of course PRICE MATCH if you find another NOS example of same.
MIGHT be interested in chronograph GMT or Calibre 15 chronograph trades.
