Lemania - A Royal Navy Monopusher Chronograph - HS9 /I\ 5591 - Hydrographic Service

£4,750.00GBP
vws1639

These Lemania 'single pusher chronographs' are immediately recognizable as a military spec timepiece with its simple Arabic dial, MoD "Broad Arrow" marking, and caseback engravings HS9 /I\ 5591 ((H.S. = Hydrographic Service = Navy). The white dial on these watches gives them a distinct look unlike most military watches and they are much sought after for this reason. 

The earliest of watches would have originally sported a radium dial but the telltale 'T' on this model denotes that it has a tritium dial according to MOD guidelines as they discovered the more hazardous nature of radium. 

What’s On Offer 

This watch is in remarkable condition considering its age and the life it may have had, this rare opportunity to own something steeped in so much history won't be around for long so snap it up whilst you can and you'll have a unique piece of the past to treasure. 

The watch is all original and in stunning condition, with a sharp unpolished case and extremely distinct case back engravings which are again, crisp and untouched!

The dial and hands on our example are also sharp and very clearly legible with no obvious marks or blemishes. The watch is an overall astonishing example with all its original dial and hand lume intact and the watch runs impeccably as you would expect just having been recently serviced.
