Just wanted to share my latest find with you all.
It`s a Claude Meylan with the nice and proven Lemania 8810:-!

It will hopefully be here in the next couple of days


I really like the idea with the twin barrels and so on... And Its always nice to have something Lemania powered on your wrist

Hi Heat

The cal 8810 is in fact a former Longines inhouse movement taht was built in the mid 70's, it was the calibre Longines L990, one of the flattest calibres ever produced. It was also one of the highest quality one ever produced on the market. Longines sold the movement to the Nouvelle Lemania which is a part of Breguet and now this calibre is solely used by Breguet.

:) Nivrel N610.001 AAARL uses it. Ya just gotta love Nivrel, I have three.
Getting one of these babies may take some doin, good luck. This one is
special without the special Brequet price.
Does anyone know any other resently produced watches with this calibre?

Is It correct to say that Nouvelle Lemania only produces movements for Breguet and Omega these days?
Yes the lemania 1873 is the base of the 1861 and 1866 calibre in the speedy. Breguet use the calibre 2320, 8810 and some specific tourbillons as well as a minute repeater all made by Lemania for some of its watches. Patek, Vacheron and Audemars Piguet also used and use the Lemania 2320. The 8810 is far superior in quality to an eta 2892-a2.
