The Lemania Limited Edition

From Nivrel -

Although I have posted about this particular model previously, it is one that still calls to me.

40 mm stainless steel case with display back, this is a subtle stunner.  But what will draw many is embedded in the model 
name - Lemania.  Under the hood beats the Lemania 8810.  This is a wonderfully flat, self-winding movement with a pretty sexy provenance.  Previously known as the Longines L990, it was acquired by Lemania in the darkness before the dawn of the mechanical watch renaissance.  Limited to 30 pieces total, this is something special.

Here are the pertinents, straight from Nivrel -


Automatic movement caliber Lemania 8810, fine finishing, engraved rotor, double barrel.


Indication of hours, minutes, sweep second, and date.


Silver-coloured with sunburst guilloche, Arabic, applied numbers, applied indexes, luminous with Superluminova C3.


Losange-style, luminous with Superluminova C3.


Case in steel 316L, sapphire crystal, stainless steel case back with sapphire crystal, water-resistant to 5 bar. Diameter: 40 mm, Height: 7.4 mm.


Handmade leather strap in black or brown, NIVREL signature buckle.
