This prototype was developped by L.M.C. during 1986 and presented to Mr Antonio CILIBRASI in Roma ( The oficial assistance center of Aeronautica Militare Italiana for the maintenance of the chronographs of the pilots) to valuate and validate the changes on crown and pushers that were a big problem for the Fighters pilots at the time as they came off many times ;
Cilibrasi Company approved the changes for this unique prototype with the special Logo personalized from 31º Stormo that was a Squadron for very special and dangerous missions at the time.
Latter the contract between L.M.C. – Nouvelle Lemania and CILIBRASI have not been renewed by L.M.C. and CILIBRASI bought some stock including this watch from them (as stated by the letter signed by Antonio Cilibrasi and copies from the contract).
The watch is a LEMANIA 5100 NOS condition just beautifull PVD case and bracelet, on NOS condition ;
Dial & Hands have awasome crispy colours and beautifull lume but pictures pictures don’t do it justice ;
Movement runs great as the chrono and needs no introduction – is a LEMANIA 5100, simply the best ;
