1947 Lemania CH27 C12 Chronograph


Authenticity Guaranteed / 14-days Inspection Period / 1-year Warranty

Our personal favorite, a classic vintage chronograph from the 1940s - Lemania CH27. This watch is notable for many reasons. First of all because of Lemania CH27 C12, the movement which gave birth to Omega Cal.27 CHRO and then the famous Cal.321. In fact, these movements were technically identical showing only minor differences in finishing. This amazingly designed movement is hidden inside the most sought-after version of the case - patented "waterproof" case with screw-down caseback. Finally, the watch is boasting with a very charming creamy-white dial in a true vintage and untouched condition. The watch shows a real vintage character, the patina is here but not disturbing. Though some may say "i'd prefer the Omega", this Lemania appears to be a way rarer than both Omega 27 CHRO and early executions of Cal.321. There are always few Omega pieces on the market while an all original Lemania pops up once a year. Don't miss your chance.
