For sale RAF issued 1958 Lemania Series 2 6B mono-pusher chronograph. Unpolished 100% original and working perfectly with perfect dial and case - any spots you see are on the glass not the dial.
This watch is from an ex-RAF pilot who flew a De-Havilland Vampire and was purchased from the original owner's family. Comes with letter of provenance and story of the pilot's RAF career and service from the family, plus an RAF issue Smiths 1/5th sec 30 minute stopwatch with original box also in perfect working order which was used after he left active service and was an RAF flight instructor.
I've got it on a glued leather strap which will come with the watch but this of course is easily removed. It also looks great on a NATO in an appropriate hue to match the fantastic aged lume on the hands and dial.
All in all this is a fantastic package with documented provenance from the original owner's family with the added bonus of the Smith's stopwatch.
At 38mm these are very elegant and classic design and look fantastic on the wrist. I bought this hoping I'd never have to sell, but it's been a tough tough year for many of us in the entertainment industry (!!)
I have many references on this forum over the last decade - buy in complete confidence.
Any questions please contact me via email. I am currently away on holiday and I left the letter of provenance behind but I'll be back home before New Year and can send anyone interested a copy.
Price $5500 US payment via paypal plus 4% for fees. Postage options to be discussed (usually Fedex with us splitting the costs).
Thanks to Jeff and OTD for this great forum.
