FSOT: Meylan PVD (Sinn 143) Lemania SAAF c5012 TRITIUM *REDUX* *PIC*

Meylan PVD Chronograph (Sinn 143) Lemania c5012 BLK/BLK 70s

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.

The watch is in perfect condition – apparently unworn from old stock - not a mark on the PVD, other than a single strap change - running dead accurate in all functions, 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, 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.

Movement: LEMANIA calibre 5012
Year: circa mid 1970s
Condition: appears Unworn

Price: €2.750 or; will consider INTELLIGENT Offers for QUICK, hassle-free sale, FINAL SALE.
