Lemania being a part of Omega-Tissot-Lemania joint company called SSIH was one of the leading manufacturers developing legendary in-house chronograph movements. Caliber 15TL is a twin-brother of legendary Omega Cal.33.3, one of the best chronograph movement back in that time. Even their indexes tell us about common roots - it is the size 15 lignes = 33.3 mm. Being a successor of another legendary Cal.28.9 it was designed to fit bigger balance wheel for better precision. Technologies and architecture of the caliber were used then to develop Cal.27CHRO and then subsequently the famous cal.321.

This particular piece is notable for an oversize 37 mm case with an amazing ghost two-tone dial. Great collecting value, and very charismatic look. Don't miss your chance!

    Measuring a watch

    It is always crucial to understand the size of the watch, especially when it comes to vintage watches which are generally considered as too small in comparison with what watch industry offers today. For example, the original Patek Philippe Calatrava introduced in the 1930s was only 31 mm in diameter, while today's classic Calatrava is 39 mm. When you think about 8 mm, it doesn't seem to be a big difference, but believe it is.

    In our condition reports we normally disclose three most important parameters as follows: diameter without crown / lug-to-lug length / lug width. 

    Diameter without crown

    It is, so far, the most important measurement to understand the size of a regular round-shaped watch.It helps you to understand proportions and overall look of the watch. It is important to consider width of the bezel and color of the dial, because certain combinations may make the watch look bigger, while some other smaller. It is all very individual, however there is common understanding:

    Lug-to-lug width

    This parameter will help you to understand whether the watch is comfortable for wearing. You should compare lug-to-lug width with the width of your wrist, and if lug-to-lug width is smaller or equal, then this watch shall be comfortable.

    Lug width

    This measurement is defining what size of strap you need for the particular watch. Depending on era and manufacturer you can find watches with lug width between 14 mm and 24 mm. Most common sizes are 18 mm and 20 mm.
