Why We Love It
If you're at all interested in vintage chronographs, the name Lemania should ring a bell.
We could go on about their history (founded in 1884) or their technical expertise, but to sum it up, Lemania is the king of the hill as far as chronographs go.
Take this Lemania Triple Register Chronograph for example. It features a very rare and colorful 1970s Panda dial housed inside of a 40mm stainless steel cushion case.
With killer 70s looks and a world-grade manually winding chronograph movement inside (the same as found in the Omega Speedmaster Professional), this piece also comes with the period correct stainless steel signed Lemania bracelet.
So, to recap - great looks, great movement, great value, great history. This, dear friends, is what collecting vintage watches is all about!
Lemania, established in 1884 by Alfred Lugrin, is perhaps one of the most recognizable names in the history of wrist chronographs. At Jaeger-LeCoultre and at his own manufacture, which he ran under his own name, Lugrin gained a reputation for expertise and the soundness of his èbauches, particularly chronographs. After his death, it was under his son-in-law Maurice Meylan's leadership that the manufacture was renamed Lemania and moved to L'Orient.
In 1932, Lemania joined Omega and Tissot to form SSIH (Société Suisse pour l’Industrie Horlogére SA). It was this relationship--particularly with Omega--that would result in the creation of some of the most iconic calibers in horological history, like the Lemania 1873 (or Omega Caliber .861) found in the legendary Omega Speedmaster.
