Hi All;

At the end of the 1970s, Lemania made this manual wind two register chronograph and sold it to the Swedish & the South African airforces.

It is quite a rare model (less than 1,000 made) and it took me a few years to find this one to add to my collection of military watches.

Guess what turned up last week?

Absolutely identical, down to case movement & dial (apart from the brand name, of course); I have to assume that Lemania had some left over and sold them directly to Tissot, who simply printed their name on the dials.
