FS: Lemania Viggen - Swedish Air Force watch


Got this early MK1 Lemania Viggen, probably one of the rarest and best looking military watches out there today. Serviced a year ago at Nymans Ur in Stockholm.
1yr warranty left on that service.
The watch was used by Swedish jetpilots of the Saab J37 Viggen, a highly respected fighter jet.

The Swedish Airforce ordered 400 watches from Lemania in the early 70's.
They did order them in two batches and this one is from the first batch aka MK1.
The caseback has some wear but you can still see the M-number and the Swedish Three Crowns.
Between the lugs, you can see the issued number which is 078 for this one.

At this point there's only around 50 known examples "alive" since the pilots had to give back the watches for destruction after some years.

The watch is in great condition with an untouched exterior. The dial is in great shape without any marks or spots, original hands and the bakelit bezel is undamaged.

Watch located in Sweden.
The price is €16.500. A partial trade could be of interest.

References available from CT, OF, WUS, and from many other places.

Shipped world wide insured at cost.
Payment by bank wire only.

These two pictures was taken before the service, case isn't dirty now as in the pictures presented below.
