Bucherer Lemania 817 Chronograph circa 1960’s

SOLD

Exceptional condition 1960’s era large 41mm diameter screw back case Bucherer chronograph with matte black outer rotating bezel and stunning gray reverse panda dial with white registers and orange chronograph hands. Featuring a minty condition unpolished case and pristine original gray dial with intact luminous indexes and luminous hands. Powered by Lemania caliber 3872 2 registers manual wind movement with unusual feature of date within the register at 9 o’clock. With original cross hatched winding and setting crown, round chronograph pushers, and unpolished beefy lug case. In excellent operating condition. Fitted with your choice of distressed or other sporty leather strap. Includes our highly prized quality Italian leather watch pouch.

Research into this rare model informs us that this same case was use by Lemania for military chronographs designated as ref 817 for the Swedish and South African military. The current example, while lacking a military style dial or hands, is large, robust, and sensational looking. A rare beauty that is truly a head turner!
