FS: Tissot Reverse Panda Chronograph (Lemania 1281)

On offer's a 3-register reverse-panda Tissot chrono powered by the Lemania 1281. The 34mm (without crown) stainless steel has polished sides, a brushed finish on top, and very minimal wear from use. No gouges on the caseback, original Tissot signed crown, and the watch comes strapped to a blue and black fabric rally strap. The crystal has some minor scratches (particular up around 11); should polish out fine.

The black dial, white subregisters, red tachy ring and chrono seconds hand, and blue regatta timing section of the minute totalizer are all in excellent shape: I can find no scratches or scuffs. There is--as you can sort of pick up--some ghosting going on on the dial, basically wherever there are applied markers (the Tissot insignia; the hour makers); I've got the two-register version of this, and it's the same deal there. Not sure what the cause is, and it's not noticeable unless you're really looking, but wanted to make sure it was mentioned.

All lume plots are present and full, and the lume on the plots and hands match exactly. On the hour and minute hands, at the bottom of the lume plots, there's some hazing; I imagine this is just debris and could be cleaned up.

The Lemania 1281 (or Tissot 871) keeps +/- 10 seconds/day time, with the chronograph starting/stopping/resetting crisply. It's a terrific piece in ready-to wear shape. Comes with its original Tissot box.

Asking $900USD; happy to provide more pictures, references, answer any questions, etc. Thanks for looking, and to Jeff/CT for the space--
