1950s Lemania tricolor triple scale chronograph
Lemania has produced some of the finest chronograph movements, including the 27 CHRO 12C, the ancester of the mythical Omega 321. But Lemania has also produced some great watches, and a few exceptional ones. This striking and unique chronograph from the early 50s is one of them.
Inside a lightly worn, but unpolished 36mm steel case with a screwed caseback and round pushers, Lemania has placed a 27 CHRO 12C under an incredible (and we mean incredible) tricolor triple scale dial. Yes, this dial features a telemeter, a tachymeter, but also a pulsometer. Each scale in a distinct color makes the overall perfectly readable, aesthetically pleasing and ultra-rare. The golden numeral indexes and hands just add to the “wow” effect.
Look twice, you may not come across another one soon.

Overall condition is excellent. The dial is flawless, the case shows very little wear and remains unpolished (look at that crispy bezel). The movement was serviced, as usual.
