Rare exemple of a Lemania pre Silverstone chronograph, this model was then commercialized by Heuer for the famous Heuer Silverstone model (ref. 510.403).

Lemania manufactured some limited models to introduce the new Lemania 5100 and 5012 movements between 1978 and 1980.
Lemania 5100 and 5012 movements was officially issued to pilots by the NATO and it was specifically designed to withstand more than 7g without losing time.
The Lemania 5100 and 5012 movements was then used in numerous well know brand such as Heuer, Omega, Sinn, Orfina, Tutima, Fortis and Eberhard watches to name a few.
Lemania separated from the SSIH Group in 1981 and changed its name to Nouvelle Lemania. In 1992 the Nouvelle Lemania was bought by Breguet. The Lemania calibers are still used today in watches of numerous well-known brands.
