vintage "Lemania" LED watch or a fake???

Post10 Jul 2017, 22:36

Hi all,
I've seen this watch on Ebay (the photo 1 below) and I was intrigued by it and almost tempted to buy it. :grin1:
But a later analysis of the zoomed photos showed me that the Lemania name and the Lemania "crown" are not properly CENTERED on the crystal, and the engraved LEMANIA name it is not according to the state-of-the-art LEMANIA graphical representation (e.g. please see the last A of Lemania logo/name on the watch and in the proper logo - photo 2).

Even worse, there is no LEMANIA logo or name on the caseback (photo 3)
But I may have been wrong, so I kindly ask Your expert opinion about this watch - could it be genuine??? :scratch:
Thanks in advance,
:dwf:

Don't know but, could it be that the original crown symbol would have interfered with the led display?

Hi,
Thanks for Your kind opinion,
But what I have meant for CENTERED was about LEFT-RIGHT centered symbols/logos/names, not UP/Down - that "would have interfered with the led display" ... :grin1:
And the "crown" OR LEMANIA name seems NOT centered on the LEFT-RIGHT scheme into dial, at least to me... :grin1:
Not to mention that LEMANIA name it's not properly written according to LEMANIA's regular logo...pls see the LEMANIA logo in the photo above!
Anyway, after some extensive online searching I have only found one other mention of a "Lemania LED" watch, but without a proper photo...
Thus, the question still remains: was there a Lemania LED watch made in the 70's OR not???
