I am excited to bring this very incredible watch to the store as it was one I enjoyed researching about and learning about! The brand Lemania is most famous for it's movement, this case was no difference with the introduction of the Caliber 1345 developed in the beginning of the 1970s. This movement and it's design would see it's way into many big Swiss names we know and love, ranging from Tissot up to Omega and many others. By the 1980s they bring it to the market under their own name and called it the Lemania Regatta, which is the model we have here. Interesting this one is also signed "Elvstrom Sails", though it is not the typical Elvstrom Sail ones you can find on the market or in the documents online, which makes this one certainly interesting!
When you consider what this watch has to offer and how unique it is, it is certainly a lot of watch for the money and someone to be considered if you are not only into the big names. Goodluck finding another one of these on someones wrist in the wild!
Points of Mention
The watch is sold as watch only and therefore comes with no box or paperwork. The watch is showing signs of wear and age to the case, the dial is clean. The regatta function works as intended and the watch is running, though there is no service history with this watch.
I had a lot of fun trying to learn what I could on this watch, though I suspect I only discovered a mere drop within the ocean! When considering watches for the personal collection it usually stems from watches like this, ones I look into and get absolutely hooked!
